Vanimal00000 either way, you're going to have to rework something. so i'd do the path of least resistance.... whichever one that is is up to you.

fabricating a swing out tire carrier for my 98 TJ 2nd day

Today I spent the day in the shop closing in the frame area and strengthening it to hold the tire. Also added tie down hook holders for when and if they're needed. I also put a plate on the bottom for the jack and used uni-strut at the top. Two bolts at the bottom w/wing nuts holding it down.

This photo shows it open.

When I bought the tire carrier hinge kit I also ordered the spare tire mounting plate. After receiving it I realized it was for a Toyota tire carrier. It's sturdy and I can drill it out I guess, but do you guys have any thoughts of what else to do? Should I pop the original off the TJ and rework it or just redrill what I bought?
Any suggestions?
