tlrrob1000 32's. Probably moving to a 31 procomp or a 33. I'll have to see what I have as far as a yj. (options) Great looking design. Thanks for the pics and info.

Rawkon well i built mine off of a LOD xtreme rear bumper/tire carrier. so you would have to either buy something similar or build one. 1996-2006 Jeep TJ/LJ Xtreme Duty Tire Carrier*::*Rear Bumper with Tire Carrier*::*1996-2006 Jeep TJ/LJ Products*::*Jeep*::*LoD Offroad
I dont have any measurements but i have tons of pics. what size tire are you running?

No. When we bought the jeep the bumper and the tire carrier were missing. I have been looking around and I really didn't like what I saw as far as custom jobs but this is nice.

Levinoss I'd kill to have that!

I like how yours hangs though because it would leave more room in the tub. Having the bumper portion inside the tub would take up some more room. But I think I can figure something out. Thanks for the inspiration.

AzTJ But his is in the tub I think. I'm looking at mine sitting like Rawkon's.

Something like this - http://www.pickupspecialties.com/Tir...ner_series.htm

4point I'm not positive, but I think Scout carries his 36" in the back.

I'm only on 32's... but I'm thinking in long term. When my TJ is paid for in the next few months I'm going to get a little commuter car and start a project on the TJ. Axle, tires and tube work.

I love the pre-runner look to it with the tire hanging low and out back, but I'm thinking of jumping up to 37's with new axles. If the tire were to sit up a bit more you think one would fit though? Your's is just resting on that bar behind the rear seat right?

Rawkon alot of buggy jeeps i see running around use the rear part of the roll cage to put the tire on. the only downside is when you need to reverse you cant see crap.

Have a more dune buggy look compared to the standard one that stands up don't it?

Rawkon do you already have a rear tire carrier besides stock?
09-20-2009 11:39 PM
tlrrob1000 I want one. I want it. Liability??? I'll sign a waiver. If not do you have the deminsions and I'll have my buddy fab me one.
09-20-2009 01:49 AM
Rawkon my hard top still fits, but with the tail gate off the glass wont stay closed and i dont want to find out the hardway..

Im in so cal so all summer and most of "winter" ill run like this. I can swap back to my LOD upper half in a matter of minutes. for the rare cold days or snow runs
09-19-2009 11:14 PM
csamn2007 I like it, i have been looking at making my own or purchasing one. How well does the top work with it on?
09-08-2009 11:06 AM
Rawkon had some major testing this weekend. It didnt move at all through the woops and jumps and was hit about 4 times. (nerfed) Im gonna go through the whole jeep after work to make sure no cracks.

SoCal147 Well Thought Out Mod. Very Nice Lookin Jeep.
09-05-2009 03:08 PM
Rawkon Thanks man, yea ive thought about it and for me its too much liability. Im game for making stuff for friends and thats it.
08-31-2009 07:53 AM
builtbyme Nice job with the tire carrier. Have you ever thought about building and selling one for other people?
08-24-2009 09:40 PM
Rawkon the lower is a LOD extreme tire carrier and I built the upper section with a couple friends
08-11-2009 03:41 AM
Moltar Thats sick, what rear bumper are you running? Warn or an ebay one?
07-27-2009 12:18 AM
AzTJ Understandable, and I love the pre-runner aspect of it.
07-26-2009 11:29 PM
Rawkon All painted up

07-26-2009 11:13 PM
Rawkon I thought about putting it inside, but then id loose all bed space for anything else. im just happy i can see out my rear view mirror and no shaking going on back there from our wonderful so cal freeways. I use to have to ratchet strap the tire carrier to the roll cage so it wouldnt smash my tailgate. and ues i had it all adjusted properlly
