    I've checked the web, but I haven't been able to find a swing away tailgate tire rack. I've seen the trailer hitch kind, and don't particularly like the way they look. Were these ever an actual option on K5's? Is there an aftermarket one? I don't weld and I want something OEM looking anyway, not jerry-rigged. Any ideas, or can you point me in the right direction?

    username heavymetal also does fabs. I don't have the link to his web site, but he'll do a bumper with swing out tire carrier for $350 (a LOT cheaper then sec)
