in bed tire mount
 
3 Attachment(s)
well I hate having my tire on the tail gate so until I make a tire carrier bumper I used from scrap to make a mount in the bed. I dont like it so much but its better then the tire wrecking my tailgate (its already bent the hinges)

If i was gunna do it again i wouldnt have the piece attach to the tub because the top doesnt go down and that part is so thin as well.

...yet another project where nothing ever goes right lol:facepalm:.

I did something similar, for the same reason, but used a different approach. So far mine has held up to the abuse of wheeling 2-3 times a month. Here is my write-up from JeepForum: In-cab TJ Spare Tire Mount - JeepForum.com

I like it ! I considered that type of mount but I carry around another tire and I wasnt sure it would fit as well. I guess I was thinkin I would have more room in the back mounting it like I did but I was wrong I have like none :rofl: OH well!


One question did you have to remove the plastic parts form the wheel wells to get at the underside when you mounted that?

Yes, but i had already removed the fender liners some time prior.

Looks great but you should mount it on the drivers side so you dont have a big blind spot...

Anyone mounted one on the drivers side yet? I took my spare off and am trying to find a way to mount mine standing up also.

good job i like were you put the tire

I am removing my seat belts now and looking at making a bracket using the seatbelt mounts. I think with a bar between them, tubing, and a universal spare mount I might be able to make one.

I'm mounted my spare tire on my towbar here it is in my Jeep mounted at an angle I want to make a bar for the back so I can lift the whole tire level and Stowe gear underneath.
