So, how far do u have to open the tire carrier to clear the hatch? 90 degrees? 120?
I do like some of your ideas. designing my own, just checking hinge location on yours.

105 degrees until I could open it



It will be closer or less than 90 once the tire is mounted proper. I just set it on the post for effect.

great work! im going to use a few ideas for this when i decide to build my carrier. i like the creativeness on the lever, it looks a little bulky for my taste but as long as it works. keep up the great work

I think the whole thing looks like **** right now but I haven't even started on the cosmetics. You'll like the lever when its done and hidden under the high lift

Just taking a lunch break from this. It will take some time to break in but the latch is working as planned.
Arm I made for the lever. Just 3/4 round solid stock.



Hole I drilled for it, wanted to weld it on both sides.



All welded together.



Drilled the holes and pushed in the bushings.



Starting to look like something now!



Bolt holes drilled out. This turned out to be quite the *****, I forgot I made the lever have about .10 camber towards the left side so I drilled the hole straight. Just needed some reaming.



Assembled. Turned out PERFECT. The lever is very hidden but easily accessible and operate. Once I have the high lift mounted over the mechanism nobody will know how it operates. Last pic is a vid on it in use.






VIDEO VVV

I dig it

How much shake/vibration is there at the connection? How tight is it? Say if you were to start yarning on the tire, like when you offroad/drive the Jeep.

I see your done carrier and raise you one hi-lift jack.


Spacer.


Stupid jack lock. Had to modify it because stock doesnt make any sense.







Had to make my hi-lift a mid-lift




There will be another bracket at the end, just ran out of time for tonight.

Zero vibration/movement. I will be putting in bump stops because eventually it will have some play, it is inevitable.
