Make sure the mount is stout for the spare tire . When I did my backflip the spare tire ejected itself from my rig , taking with it the basket and all my tools . It made for a nice yardsale . I just got done making a steel cover for security behind the seats and it works great . It does require some creative packing , but I love the dual levels . If you need a tig guy , I have a friend in pfafftown who is an artist with a tig ... and he is reasonable too .

You: (LIGHTBULB!) Aluminum Deck! Hun, I love you!
LMAO That was me at marriage counciling!

The series-L track and fittings are good for a few thousand pounds, and each 48" section will be held in by ten bolts...so I think that part will be alright. I'm more worried about the strap hardware than anything else.

This actually addresses a question that I've had for quite some time now. What does Anna think about all them sammiches? Judging by her figure she doesn't seem the type to consume high calorie foods for pondering; or is she one of those people that can eat bacon wrapped, deep fried twinkies and not gain an ounce of weight?

She has a very nice figure, but she also eats pretty carefully. I actually don't indulge myself in horrid food as much as it might seem.

Off to pattern and photograph. Stay tuned.

[QUOTE=Sundowner;13822607]Explanations


Pictured: I bet you didn't think it would look like this.



Im not sure if this has already been asked but im curious about the technical details of this design.

Exactly how will the spare attach to these rails? With this design will the tire slide off along the rails or could you lift it straight up off the deck? If you you slide it off the side would the rear arches of the roll cage interfere?

Awesome design though Sundownr, Im a huge fan of the thread and have been following a long long time. Thanks for all the hard work, it keeps everyone extremely entertained while being super informative.

Simple is best: a four-way cam strap with clips for the L-track rings. Access will be from the rear, and you can simply pull it off from that direction. If you tried to go to the side the C-pillars would be in the way. I could hold it down in other ways, but an X-shaped retention would be ideal; lightweight, easily manipulated, and way stronger than it needs to be.

Well, since I'm still working on patterns and the aluminum hasn't even arrived yet...no. However, as soon as I can I'll start posting a few progress pictures.
