Spare Tire Carrier Questions

I am planning on building a swing out tire carrier for my YJ but I have a few questions for those of you who have them. First off is there anyway that I can make it easily removable (like pull a pin out and lift it off)? Also do these carriers bonce around, like back and forth towards the window?
Any help is greatly appreciated.

A quality Tirecarrier is bolted on and does not move or rattle.

I had a 35 on my Tirecarrier and it held up great even after being rear ended a few times.

My swing away comes right off by removing a cotter pin.



Its an old picture. My cb antenna is mounted elsewhere.

Anti,


Do you have a write-up on your carrier? How did you make your pivot. It doesn't look like the axle spindle that most people use.

Did you just use a piece of solid round stock for the pivot?

Solid stock for the pivot and a tight fitting piece that goes over it. Its been carrying a 35" tire on and offroad for a few years now and zero problems. I don't have a writeup as it was thrown together at the spur of the moment. The small square tubing was actually dumped off the side of the road onto my property and I cleaned it up and have found three uses for it thus far. I'm in the works of designing another one that'll hold a small atv winch in the rear so whenever I get around to it I will do a write up on that.
