I like them. Do you know the brand or where you got them?

I was running my first of two OR-Fab spare tire carriers years ago when I barely knew Blaine, so much for that failed cheap shot. It doesn't take more than a little common sense to realize the inherent weakness of depending on one end of a bumper to withstand that kind of leverage against it.

When you have a choice, buy American made.

I got the point. It just wasn't very sharp.

What I was getting at is any time someone says something negative about him or his products you come in and throw your 2 cents in where it isn't needed thus cluttering the threads even though you complain when other do the same. Again I know the bumper mounted isn't the best option out there, never said it was. I like the idea of something like the or-fab you run (from my understanding this is number 2 after first Jeep was stolen) except I don't want my tire hanging 2' off the back end.

Blaine doesn't need my support any more than I shouldn't voice my opinion no matter who it backs up. You didn't like it simply because it didn't back your opinion. And my current OR-Fab carrier tucks the spare up close next to the tailgate, it doesn't stick out like the first OR-FAB I installed which placed two jerry cans between the tailgate and tire.

When you have a choice, buy American made.

They looked like this before I cut it up.

Actually, it probably was this exact one. I soaked it in citric acid to get rid of the coatings (didn't want to weld something with fumes), cut the upper end down much shorter and plug welded the holes up, then drilled new holes to line up with the holes on the tail gate.

The bottom 1/2 of the hinge I just put an angle on the corners, so it wasn't just a 90 degree. No need to weld up or redrill the lower holes.

I can take a closer photo if you like.

Sharp or not, it's only your opinion that the product is or isn't worth paying for just like it is my opinion that bumper mounted tire carriers are or are not worth paying for. Neither is any more correct than the other, it's just opinion and if you don't like me expressing mine, then keep yours to yourself.

For the record, I don't like Jerry's choice of tire carrier any more than I like yours.

actually, maybe that's not the exact hinge, the bolt holes on the lower part aren't the same pattern, I don't think I drilled any new holes on the bottom 1/2 of the hinge. The hinges themself that I used are 7 inches wide (when mounted on the jeep upright, I just measured them). They are just gate hinges, plenty strong enough.

Two JERRY cans behind the tire sorry I make myself laugh sometimes.

WAYYYY off topic here... But make a thread showing your preferred tire carrying methods. I'm completely open to ideas for not having a tire carrier off the back!

Probably leaving the spare at the trail head, and bringing a sh*t ton of tire plugs

That's where it is currently. Just on the floor. More creative and elegant solutions would be awesome.
