I really like that! I wouldnt be able to mount My hilift like that though! When I look at those pictures, all I can think of is "stitchs", LOL! My kids like to ride there bikes and scooters around the driveway. I just sold/ installed My old bumper/tire carrier to a friend so now Im commited to building a new one. The ideas are starting to add up!

LOL!!! My dad made the point about the kids hitting it, I told them they would only do it once, right? I have hit it with my shoulder 3 times already… and not just bumped into it, full on walking looking the other direction… OWIE!!! I might change it… if I had the shorter jack it wouldn't be an issue...

I love this tire carrier - how has it held up? Any other improvements or have you had any probelms with it?

How much weight do you think it can hold? Good enough for a 37" tire and jerry can?

Nice carrier. Couldnt you mount the jack on the inside toward the outer corner standing up vertically?

So far it's held up great, I found some hitch pins to use instead of bolts on one side, which has made accessing the rear a lot easier!!!

The jack would work on the inside if I had one of the smaller jacks, just think that the tall one would look silly standing vertically. I have since cut a hole in a tennis ball and put on the end. Plus the jack would probably block the view of the tail lights the way I have it set up.

I wish I would have had a Jerry can to measure before I built this (I now have two). The carrier is deep enough to fit one in on both sides, but the radious cuts it so it doesn't fit. I am trying to figure out a way to mount them on top, but I'm going to 37's by summer, so I will wait. When I do that, I'll weld in a center bar and gusset the post that attaches to the tire!

I used a buddies JD2, very simple to use, just plan and measure 5 times! There is a good write up on pirate 4x4 on measuring and Pre-planning. Not to mention there are plenty on here.

Is not better to have the tire outside, so you can have some room for a pair of jerry cans, etc.?. Question: Where did you got your brackets and bushings?
Thanks

I wouldn't say "better", just differant.

I got the brackets from poly performance, they are cage tie ins.

I've owned a welder for about ten years... I was talking to my wife about welding for a long time so she got me a Campbell Hausfeld for a birthday a long time ago. Learning on it was frustrating, but I think it helped me in the long run. I ended up with a Lincoln 180 and I love welding with it! Even with flux core it welds so much smoother!!! I wanted the Miller 180, but it was just out if my price range... My Lincoln has been everything I needed!

If the jerry cans are new couldnt you cut them, and change the basic shape so it fits inside your mount?
