BAL spare tire carrier
« on: March 05, 2019, 06:50:30 AM »
I bought this off of Amazon. Having never seen one before I went strictly off the reviews and comments. It fit really good. I had to drill the hole for the keeper a little bigger. When I hung it up it hit the heads of the bolts. That made the hole off by just a hair.

I thought it was a little flimsy at first. But once I got it installed I have no doubt it work just fine. Actually I think I'm going to throw a second tire on there. I don't have another rim but it would be nice to have a backup for the backup since I have one laying around anyway.

Never seen those before. Looks like a pretty good system. How is the other side held on? With a hinge?

Looks like it maybe slides in and out as well?

Give me coffee for the things I can change and Bourbon for the things I cannot!

That looks like something you could build pretty simply for multiple tires.   I like it
