I think we all know that if you get larger tires, you need to get a tire carrier to compensate for the weight... Well I've been running 35's on my 07 unlimited since I got it and I've done plenty of wheeling with it and nothing ever happened. However its always been in the back of my mind and I think its time to do something about it.
So here is the problem- I already have an aftermarket bumper, and I would like to build a tire carrier and weld it to this bumper instead of buying new. I know there are numerous build threads, but I would really like to build a one motion (one hand) tire carrier. These are the tire carriers that open with the gate, instead of having to do both.
Does anyone know how to do this? Has anyone built this? Is there a thread I haven't seen?
Mostly what I need to know is how to link the carrier to the gate so it opens and closes correctly.
Any help or advice is greatly appreciated!
