Hi-Lift/Tire holder???

Hey All,

Anyone know who makes the best spare tire/hi-lift jack holder
that mounts on rear end? Hopefully kinda not expensive?

Anybody? Only one I found was WAY too expensive.
Should I just mount the high lift in the front?

It was like some $990 "system" that holds a high lift, spare and 2 gas cans!!

I do not need a bumper. Doesn't anyone just make a hi-lift mount and
spare tire holder?

Is this something that the market is lacking? I already have a great
aftermarket bumper. I may be wrong, but I do not think hanging a 33"
tire on the door is a great idea. How would you want one built??

just my opinion here, I had mine attached to the bumper for years and it's crap now. Got a new one and it's mounted on the rear of the roll bar with U clamps, stays clean and it's out of the way. I did slice a "Pool Noodle" and put it over it just so nobody hits their noggin.

smittybuilt makes a nice tire carrier, i do believe it comes with the bumper though. if you can i'd say just fab one. I would not use the stock carrier for a 33, my 31 bounced around a lot before I just threw it in the back and tooke the tire carrier off.

If you don't mind and if you find someone to fab one up, send me the design! This is going to be my next welding project.

Yeah I have a buddy who can weld well and I am gunna look into it.
Any input on what you would like to see in the design? I would like to do
it w/o including the bumper so guys can keep their stock or aftermarket
bumper. That tire weight really put some stress on parts bajaing off-road.

buy now for $403 plus $59 for shipping. Looks like good quality, but you're still spending money on getting it painted too.

$459...... does not look that hard to weld. I wonder what powdercoating
will cost? I already have a bumper kinda like that.

I will look into it. My bumper already has holds for recovery straps.
they look like the mounts for the tire bracket in the pic. I may be able
to weld up something w/a bushing that will fit over them and powdercoat it?
