I've read through a ton of previous threads on this topic and most of them spin off to the argument of keeping your jack outside vs inside. I understand the benefit of storing it inside the vehicle, especially since I live in an area that lots of environmental variables but I am still contemplating going with the outside route and only putting it when going offroad.
Does anyone use this product?
Intelligent Rack Mounting System (I Rack) SB-2740
And if so do you use it with a stock rear tire carrier? Seems like the mounting plate, full jerry can and Hi Lift would be pretty heavy as I already have a 285 tire on the stock carrier. Wouldn't adding all this stuff to the current carrier be the equivalent of carrying a 35+ tire in terms of weight and bulkiness?
Also while we're here, has anyone made their own interior cage mount without requiring drilling? (i saw one who had to drill into the bars) Seems like $84 is excessive for what looks like it could be picked up at a hardware store for $20 or so.
Thanks for your thoughts.
