Removed the rear seat from the jeep and have just been strapping down my 35" spare. I want to raise it up so I have more space to store tools etc.
My plan is to use 1/8" angle iron mounted to the bed rails using the holes from the top mounting and then spanning the width of the tub with 2x2x1/8" square tubing with a riser coming out with a plate and studs to mount the tire too. I'd probably cover it with some type of plywood etc. to seal it up.
Will that be sturdy enough to carry the weight of the tire while wheeling?
