    Not sure what your asking? Spare is bolted to the carrier frame witch is attached to the bumper by a spindle(rockstomper), so it will swing away for taigate access.

    Is that what you mean?

    Saw a trick rear "prerunner" style mount on that Sunday TV show called Trucks last weekend (you know, the show on TNN hosted by the guy w/ the best mullett in the country).

    It mounted the spare facing the rear inside of the cargo area, but could be completely removed(tire and mount) by removing one large mounting nut.

    Looked pretty nice.
