Looking for ideas for a location of a spare on a '74 CJ5. Any ideas out there.
I have the same issue as you i think. Cant do the rear carrier because of the tailgate? Sucks huh im thinking of building a rack to go on top of my roll cage, with the bikini top under it. Maybe attaching the rack with those rolls of metal where you screw it to tighten.:redface: dont know what its called haha
There are literally a hundred different designs of swing-out spare carrier/bumper combinations available to build or buy. Most accomodate the use of the tailgate.
For example, this thread shows a body-mount design offered years ago on early CJ5's
Other more modern designs add a bumper, tied into or replacing the rear crossmember, then mounting the tire swing onto the bumper.
Here is one example:
LoD Jeep TJ/YJ/CJ Wrangler Xtreme Duty Rear Bumper Tire Carrier, Rear Bumpers - LoD Genuine Equipment
