Spare tire hood mount?
 
Guys, Been toying with the idea of getting an old hood & modifying to mount the spare tire (... Like the old series Land Rovers). anyone ever think about or attempt this? What do ya'll see as potential issues? ThanksMike, 95 Sahara

severely limited visibility will definitely be a problem. also added heat from motor to tire will be a risk. besides that........do believe it would be kinda ugly.

Could be cool. What size tire? Big tires are heavy.

limited visibility plus hood will get caved in without bracing..

Is your back tailgate mount broken? I have one for sale :) lol

A tire on the hood might actually look worse than this.

when my buddy got his f250 stuck in the woods we put his spare tire on my hood i was very dangerous could'nt see anything. i'd put it on the rear fender or on the swing gate

it would also make opening the hood a pain and it could become a projectile in a crash

:rofl::rofl:

Forget the hood just get a overhead rack. and throw all your stuff up there for the expedition..

Btw that yellow rig was hilarious!

That's horrible.....:facepalm:

Sounds stupid in my opinion. Do a tubular tailgate and mount the tire on that at a 45 degree angle

Agree with everyone else. A spare tire mount on the hood would be a terrible idea.

But to each their own. It's your Jeep, do what you want. Just make sure you somehow brace the hood underneath or else it'll cave in.

agreed,,,,,

what about a mount on your rear roll bar,s if ya want to be different,,,,i have toyed with this idea.......
