Ok so I used to have a hitch mounted fold down tire carrier and it was beginning to be more of a pain folding it up and down so I scrapped the idea and redesigned it.
I Had recently bought a welder and wanted to build something with it and test my fabrication skills.
My redesigned tire carrier takes place of the stock rear bumper while still utilizing the stock bumper cover. All it is, is a rear "bumper " with a hinge and latch brackets that is then covered by the stock bumper cover. I have seen a few Zj guys with this set up ad a couple Wj guys do it as well and figured I'd give it a shot.
Il let the pictures do the talking and if there are any questions ask away.
Hope you guys like it.
