    Does anyone out there know how the spare tire in my 70 cst was mounted ? Was is originaly mounted at all? I am trying to get this baby back to its original condition adn my Dad, (the original owner) does not remember. For years we just had the tire and the jack ect.. just banging around in the back.. was there some sort of holder for all this stuff including the tire?
    Thanks in advance.

    I know that there was a bracket that bolted behind the rear seat (If you have one), or behind the driver's seat if you didn't. It would make the spare sit sidways in the blazer. (Parallel to the back seat). That's how mine is. I think that there was also a factory spare tire holder on the outside also. I have holes in my tailgate and rear passenger fender for one of those as well.

    I have a completely stock 69 with one. It is a factory tire carrier behind the back seat. It's about 24 inches tall, just taller than the back seat. It only holds a stock size tire. It clould fit taller tires, but the groove for the tires is really narrow. like 7 inches wide. You could probably buy one hear just post it on the message board for selling items. i'm not sure about the swing away on that year. i have looked everywhere and not been able to find one, or a picture that had an original one. if you find one let me know. check out these sites. the first sites are great references have complete list of standard options.

    I also have a larger tire on my holder. I'm running a 31X10.5 at it fits fine.

    I'd be interested in seeing photos of the stock spare mount too. Right now, I have no spare. I'd really like to get one and I was thinking more along the lines of one of the swing aways but the interior options sounds good too.

    Ressurection, thanks for the picks. I doesn't look like you could put a very large tire on that mount. Is that the same mount that goes behind the rear seat?

    Bouncy, that is actually the original mounting bracket for my truck, I don't see why it couldn't be mounted behind the back seat, I don't recall seeing the bracket for that position. The bolt that holds the tire up to it goes through a slot in the bracket, and there's quite a bit of room to go up on mine. My tires are like 30" or so. You could get a longer bolt (which is what I did) for wider tires/wheels.

    Looks just like mine. I have it mounted behind the rear seat. There are factory holes there already, with nuts welded underneath.
