I have a 99 TJ and currently do not carry a spare tire but have been thinking about building a rack that mounts to the tailgate in its place. I want to build something out of either round or square tubing that mounts to the factory holes in the tailgate.
I would use the rack to hold a jerry can, two ammo cans stacked on top of eachother maybe add a some of the cam lock cans to the back of that. The general shape is like the ORFab tire carrier, but I dont want to spend this much, and dont have a spare. In stead of being a swing out, I am thinking I want to solid mount it to the tailgate so it swings with it.
TJ SWING AWAY SPARE TIRE/CAN CARRIER &Active=Yes
anyone ever make or buy anything like this?
