Lets see some custom tire carrier latches

Bout finished with my tire carrier, but still undecided what style of latch I'll use. Any ideas or pics would be helpful. Thanks

Here is what I used, it is a Destaco Latch. My tire swing does not move or vibrate when latched. Works great

I might go that route. I don't have that much clearance between my bumper and swing out bar. But I may modify it to work. Look great man.

I like that Destaco Latch a lot. I was going to go with a Fessybilt swing out tire carrier and bumper. I'll see if he can do something like that.

Thanks RockHound, latch works great. Pic tomorrow. Carrier turned out good. Now I need wheels and tires, lol, two more months and I'll pull the trigger on the 33 dura tracks.
