Home made rear stinger/fold down tire carriers.

I'm about to start on a fold tire carrier for my jeep. I know the big poison spider carrier and it's too busy and massive for my liking. Way too much tube work for me. I'm only running a 35 and won't ever go over 37 so it doesn't have to be huge. I have design in mind but i was just curious to see what others have done.

Looks good! I like the scene in the flat plate. Is that a winch in that bumper I take it.

Is it possible to make one that can either drop down, or swing out? Not at the same time, but say pull pin A and B and it drops down or pull pin A and C and it swings out? Maybe not too much stress if you have thick corner armor? I don't know just curious if it could work.

A being top driver of tub
B being top pass of tub
C being bottom driver of tub

yeah I have a winch in the rear or it. As far as swing down or to the side bumpers they do have them I cant remember where I saw them though.

There is a guy who did it over in fab shop it swings out or pull some pins and folds down. my buddy has a home made fold down one also and it gets real old having to pull pins and fold it down just to get in the back of his jeep plus the strain of picking it up and holding it while trying to put the pins back in. its really time consuming. he actually bought an atv winch this week and we are going to make a mount on his tail gate to bolt the winch to and hook it to the tire as a sort of lift assist to get the tire up and hold it in place while put the pins in.
I will admit these sort of tire carriers look cool and serve a good funtion (if tied into the frame properly) but are a real pain to get into the back if you want to, I just know my buddy regrets having his now.

I should have my new Swag Offroad 'Big Hit - V2' rear bumper in a couple days. It doesn't have a tire carrier incorporated, but it does have a 2" receiver.
The tube is necessary to support a receiver hitch with this crossmember hugging style of bumper.
You could build a drop-down carrier off of it.

Folding it down is way better than my current situation of I ratchet strapping it and setting it on the ground. I want my tire as low as possible and as close as possible. Maybe fold down isn't the best way. I don't know still trying to get ideas. That carrier in the link is awesome but way too much going on for me.

Here's the idea I've had in my head for quite a while now. Just took 2 min to throw it on paper. Take it easy on my drawing, I'm terrible at it. I'm also not claiming the drawing is even remotely close to scale or even proportionately accurate. It probably would be best to tie it into some armor or a cage, which is what I would plan on. I run heavy 37's, but maybe someone could get away with just a tub mount using a smaller/lighter tire/wheel combo. Also, I intentionally am having the upper tubes/supports horizontal, as I've noticed not many manufactures of rear stingers do this, so I can incorporate modular mounts for stuff like fuel cans or small storage.
Unpin 1 and 2: fold down
Unpin 1 and 3: swings to the passenger side
Unpin 2 and 4: swings to the driver side

Let me know what you think.
