    Hello.
    Do any of you know where I can get a Spare tire carrier that mounts on the back of the truck. I have seen them on some blazers.
    I would like the type that attaches to the rear corner of the body. I know that there are the bumper/mount out there, but i have a nice bumper that I dont want to replace. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thank you.

    Lew,

    JCWhitney sells some. But if you do get one, make sure you do some reinforcing inside the body. The worst part about those body bolt on's is they will tear the body. I'd strongly suggest a bumper/chassis mounted carrier. But ya gotta follow your heart.
