Poison spyder body mounted tire carrier latch plate template

Hey guys im buying a poison spyder mounted tire carrier used and the PO does not have the latch plate template used to mark the holes that will be going on the jeep. Does anyone have one that they dont need or can mock up a template on paper with sizes? Ill pay for shipping and for the piece . Thank you!

I just bought one of these. I can make a copy of the template out of cardboard or send the original once I get the thing installed later next week? Jeep is in the shop getting the underside rust treated and then sprayed with the wax that CAT used on all of their equipment so I can't install for several days.

I will have my Jeep back tonight and will be using the template. Can get it mailed tomorrow if you still need one?

Nice looking ride! I got mine installed last night. Just have the wiring to the new brake and license plate light to get done but at least figured out how I'll do it and which wires to connect too. Got the rotopax on it full of water and it took every bit of the cam to get it to line up. Not sure it would have made it with anything bigger than the 35" tire. Love it though!

For the wiring i got this the white wire with brown stripe from your factory third brake light harness connects to the red wire on the poison spyder harness. That will power the third brake light.
White/purple wire connects to the green wire on the poison spyder harness. This will power your tag light.
And finally the black wire connects to the black wire for your ground. Is this the same as the one you came up with?

I actually ran two wires from the existing license tag light and two from the existing third brake light. two grounds to the one on the new light and red for brake and green for license. Did it that way so that any future wire or fuse chasing remains true to the original. But, I'm going to look at what you suggested as it may save me running the two over from the old license plate light wires.

I'm planning on the new frame mounted spare tire carrier that they use with the Bruiser bumper.

I really liked the look of the one used with the Bruiser bumper too but my Jeep already had a custom bumper when I bought it. Wanted the ability to mount the RotoPax too which is why I ended up with the Body Mount one.

Oh! I wanted to let all know that if you do get the Poison Spyder Body Mount that the new RotoPax brakets don't really work. I had to drill some holes to make it work which was not an issue. I sent a note to PS and they said they would check on that and make needed changes. A RotoPax will also fit behind the tire carrier (mounted on the Tramp Stamp) if you want more storage or fuel.

Lastly, If you plan to have a really big tire Plus a lot of water weight (RotoPax) you need to push the hinge braket on the top to the Right and the one on the bottom to the left as far as they will go before tightening. That allows you to not have to use every bit of the cam adjustment which will allow for any tweak needed in the future.
