    Several potential customers mentioned they wanted a Swing out tire carrier setup, so here you go.

    The bumper is made out of 2"x6" 1/4" rectangular tubing, with 1/2 inch shackle tabs. A receiver hitch can be added.

    The swing out tire carrier starts from a Rockstomper tire carrier spindle. The tire carrier is constructed with 1 3/4" .120 HREW and 1/4" plate. On the spare tire mount I welded up a receiver hitch, so you can slide your spare tire off the receiver and unbolt it from the tire plate adapter. The main idea behind this was to make installing you tire easier, this way you don't have to line up bolt holes while you hold your tire in the air and fumble to put the nuts on. Just bolt tire to plate adapter, slide assembly into hitch, and lock in place with a hitch pin.

    The jerry can, cooler, or accessories mount is made of angle iron and provides loops for tie downs.

    There will also be a Hi-lift jack mount incorporated into the tire carrier. Also the tire carriers will have two more vertical supports.

    This carrier was built to be tall enough and deep enough to allow up to a 40" tire. I will post some pics when I get some help getting my 40" mounted up there. So the carrier can be bulit shorter for people only planning on running smaller tires.

    The entire package price is
    $499.99 + freight shipping

    You can also notice that I left my hitch on the burb because I might use it to tow one day, and the bumper works just fine.

    How much for the carrier without the bumper. I have a 2x8 rear bumper that the carrier would look sweet on.

    $225 with the can and highlift mounts. On the production bumpers I am planning on using a piece of 1.5" .250 wall tube so the hinge fit inside and not have to be welded to the bumper. This way you can remove the tire carrier portion if you want.

    That will be $300 for just the bumper, with the shackle mounts, brackets, and hardware too!

    I have a stock 86 K-5. I want to know where I can find a tire carrier that mounts to the side of the body so I can keep my stock chrome bumper.
    Thanks for any help

    Tire Carrier

    81jimmyslt

    Thank you so much for the offer, but I have the stock tire carrier with the cover and may I add the org. tire. I am trying to get the tire on the outside so I can have more room on the inside. I will have to one, mount it on a basket rack or build a tire carrier. I would love to see a photo of your 81.
    Thanks Again

    Jake I don't know if I'm understanding your question. It would be no problem to put all three items on a pallet for shipping. As in difficulty in the installation process, the hardest part is getting your old bumpers off. Some basic hand tools and some penetrating oil should loosen all the bolts. Once the old junk is off the new parts bolt right on, real easy, much easier than the stock stuff.




    Oh and welcome to CK5.

    Currently no. I am trying to source a manufacturer though. If you have problems getting them in your area I could help.
