My dad and I are trying to find a way to get the spare tire out of the cargo area. So far we have come up with two ideas, a cargo basket with the tire up top or a swing arm in the back. If anyone has any of these setups could you please post a picture of them, or if someone else has other ideas I am open to new ones. Thanks -BB

I would love to have a cargo rack on the roof myself .I am going to try to make one next weekend(get the welder out) I will let you know how it turns out ..
I will enclose a picture as well.
In the mean time I have my tire on the roof sandwiched between my luggage rack sliders and tied down with rope.( not the prettiest but at least it works)
Just another soccer moms Grocery getter....
i have a roof rack (45X60 i think it is) + brackets to mount to ZJ's roof rails + spare tire bracket for sale. PM or e-mail me if you are interested. i am sure we can work out a deal, if you are.....
it's aluminum. see pic below...
i added 2 inches of lift and now it won't fit in the garage with the rack and the tire up there.....

Check out www.donavee.com for a rear swing away tire mount. Bolts to the gas tank skid/trailer hitch mounts. Very sturdy construction that they say will mount up to a 31". I have a 33" on it and still clears to open the hatch ok. It was $259 back in July 02. Still a good value at $289 and they will ship it UPS
Look under their parts section and click on MarkIII tire carrier.
