Hey ya'll I am looking to purchase an Or Fab spare tire carrier with some Jerry Cans for a long trip. My question is do you think I could weld up a basket to go over the tire, using the Or Fab carrier as the support? I am looking to go on a long trip and want the extra storage for my crap and some extra fuel just in case...thoughts?

You probably could, or you can fab a flat metal plate that bolts into the hi-lift jack mounts, with a 90 degree bend at the top to make a lip to attach the extra basket to.

That was what I was thinking, that way i could take it off when not needed too. I am mostly worried about the total weight. I was wondering if I used the roto pax setup and have it mounted to my tailgate to disperse the weight more...plus I could also carry water that way.
