The Poison Spyder Rear Stinger Tire Carrier
is the ultimate rear bumper for hard core rock crawling. Like many Poison Spyder original designs, the Rear Stinger concept has been copied by many manufacturers, but none come close to the quality, function, performance and awesome appearance of the original. Built for light weight, high clearance, ease of use and a measure of rear-flop protection, the Poison Spyder Rear Stinger is designed for those who spend most of their time in the rocks and need a tire carrier that meets the challenge.
The Rear Stinger is basically a fold-down spare tire carrier. By pulling the two upper pins, the tire carrier can swing down, making loading and unloading of huge off-road tires easier. Simply roll the tire up into the carrier, secure it with the provided 3-Way Spare Tire Strap, then swing the carrier back up and pin it in place. The main components are fabricated from NC-bent DOM tubing and CNC laser-cut plate steel.
The Tire Carrier
includes an integrated skid plate with laser cut lightning holes and Spyder logo. The Stinger hoop is NC-bent 1-3/4" .120 wall DOM tubing. It also has an integrated license plate mount located in the center of the carrier. Tabs for the lower straps and a loop for the upper strap provide a secure mount for the 3-Way Spare Tire Strap.
The Upper Corner Mounts
are designed to work with or without Poison Spyder Crusher Corners™ (we recommend using them with
Crusher Corners™). They are fabricated from CNC laser cut and precision brake-formed 3/16" plate steel components. The Upper Corner Mounts use bolt locations already in place for your Crusher Corners™. The left side Upper Corner Mount includes a convenient CB antenna mount. The Tire Carrier attaches to the Upper Corner Mounts using urethane bushings and easy-to-remove hitch pins.
The Lower Mounting Plate
replaces your Jeep's existing bumper to provide the greatest departure angle possible. The Lower Mount Plate has two sets of heavy duty bushing tabs, where the Tire Carrer attaches using urethane bushings and Grade 8 hardware. The plate also features two integrated, CNC machined 1" thick heavy duty recovery shackle tabs designed to accept 3/4" recovery shacles (sold separately). The Lower Mount Plate attaches to the Jeep with countersunk flat-head stainless steel hardware. The Lower Mount Plate can be ordered with tire carrier bushing tabs to accommodate a variety of body lift heights. Select your body lift height in the options when ordering.
The Poison Spyder 3-Way Spare Tire Strap securely holds the spare tire in place during the most rigorous four-wheeling. The use of a strap allows virtually infinite adjustability for any size tire, while allowing quick, easy access to the spare tire without having to use any extra tools. All of these reasons are why similar straps are routinely used for spare tire hold-down duty in off-road racing. Heavy duty ratchet lets you easily adjust, tighten and release tension. Made of high quality nylon webbing with an embroidered Poison Spyder tag.
We also offer a "DIY" Rear Stinger Tire Carrier without the Lower Mount Plate. This would be useful for those who would like to use the Poison Spyder Rear Stinger with their existing bumper, or for adapting it for use on Jeep models and other 4X4's for which we do not yet make a model-specific kit. We provide mounting tabs to attach the Stinger to your bumper or mounting plate of choice. Here's an example of the DIY version of our kit adapted to an existing rear bumper...
