Need swing away spare tire carrier for 99 XJ

Hello,

I am looking for a swing away spare tire carrier for 99 XJ. Really just standard duty unit like what came on XJ's back around 1989 would work for my standard tire/wheel combos.

I see a nice unit for $490 at

http://www.nates4x4.com/catalog/prod...products_id=52

but I would sure like to spend less than that.

Any Ideas ?


Thanks,
Rock.

4wheel Drive & sport utility magazine is giving one away for free you just have to find a tag with nae on it if you are intersted in it it is near Salida, Co and would require some off roading. Let me know I will send you the GPS coordinates.

Honestly, from what I've seen, that is a pretty good price on a bumper/tire carrier combo. It's not the prettiest, but jeeps are for function right?

Where at in CO are you?

I might be able to source you a stock tire carrier if you wanna pay shipping + the price for the carrier itself.
