looks good, can you put the rear window down based on where the tire is sitting?

its gonna be close. we built it off the LOD bumper so it swings out and can be swapped back to the LOD swing carrier in a couple minutes for the rare cold days in so cal.

If it were me, I'd remove the back seat and flip the carrier around. But I like it, very cool.

I thought about putting it inside, but then id loose all bed space for anything else. im just happy i can see out my rear view mirror and no shaking going on back there from our wonderful so cal freeways. I use to have to ratchet strap the tire carrier to the roll cage so it wouldnt smash my tailgate. and ues i had it all adjusted properlly

Understandable, and I love the pre-runner aspect of it.

Nice job with the tire carrier. Have you ever thought about building and selling one for other people?

Out of curiosity... would a 37" tire fit like that? I like the idea of a half-cab and the spare riding like that and still having some room in the tub for supplies and spare parts.

AZ i really doubt a 37 would fit. I think a 35 would barealy fit.
I thought you were on 33s?

Have a more dune buggy look compared to the standard one that stands up don't it?

alot of buggy jeeps i see running around use the rear part of the roll cage to put the tire on. the only downside is when you need to reverse you cant see crap.

I'm only on 32's... but I'm thinking in long term. When my TJ is paid for in the next few months I'm going to get a little commuter car and start a project on the TJ. Axle, tires and tube work.

I love the pre-runner look to it with the tire hanging low and out back, but I'm thinking of jumping up to 37's with new axles. If the tire were to sit up a bit more you think one would fit though? Your's is just resting on that bar behind the rear seat right?

I'm not positive, but I think Scout carries his 36" in the back.
