45 degree tire carrier options?
 
Is knuckle offroad the only company that makes a 45 degree tire carrier? iver been searching but thats all i can come up with. i want the tire mounted up like that on the back of the jeep frankly bc i just like the look and want to get it off my tailgate. putting it in the tub behind the seats is not an option bc i dont want to lose and room for storage in the tub.

Ace had something in the works and they posted a picture on their FB page and when I inquired I thought I remember them saying it was a prototype they were slowing working on the kinks. That was a couple months back now, might want to call them and ask if that rings a bell.

I'm certain most local fab shops would do the modification to their tire carrier. I've done one locally awhile back. It's not a difficult modification with just some changes to the carrier arm and reinforcement. It's just not a "common" request, so probably harder to find in this day and age of "off the shelf" add-on's.

Your talking about custom fabbing in a country where they got confused when i brought 35"" tires in to be mounted and balanced. I`m full of excuses. ima draw something up myself. ill post up if i start anything crazy. thanks for your inputs

Well I wouldn't take it to Kwik Lube to get a tire carrier made.
