Big Thanks to Geoff @ Bestop

A big thanks to Geoff @ Bestop - for helping us out with one of their over sized rear tire carriers for Project SkipWheat!

We were in a severe time crunch with this project and we just didn't have time to put together a custom rear Tire Carrier - Geoff knew this and knows how we like to use and recommend the Bestop Rear Tire carriers to our cusotmers - he said if we needed any help to let him know, and well we reached out and a carrier was on it's way.

Project SkipWheat is a full custom build we performed for a member of the Military who was on his 3rd tour in Iraq. With Geoff's help we were able to deliver the completeld vehicle on time, and according to build specs - which required a light weight, rattle free, durable spare tire carrier.

Thanks again to Geoff@Bestop!

Here are some pictures, with a few modifications we had to do to accomodate the 8 lug wheels with deep backspacing..

I must agree. I wish that I could weld like that. I am glad there are so many people out there who know a good weld when they see them.

Hi Dave!

This thread popped up while I was on vacation and I missed it.

Super glad you guys got this put together for that soldier. It sounds like a great project. And I'm glad Bestop could help.

You guys do some nice work.

The welding beads are always a how stopper, but it's more than that - it's really neat what a small dedicated group can produce. Here's hoping you have tons of success - but not too much. We compete on some of those products.
