Quick Question

I an new to the sami thing (got it on monday 2/13/06) i just built a fiberglass enclouser for the back tail gate, i was wondering how much weight it can hold? It has a tire onl the out side, but it tiny, can the door hold a 33-35? the enclouser should only weight 100lbs with the speackers in it (2-6x9's and a 10) ill get pics up later if you guys want to see it....

Thanks
Troy

With only about 200lbs to support I'd say you're still within the design specs of the tailgate, go for it!

I ran a 35" spare, hi-lift jack and 5 gallons of gas, on the bumper:

Yeah, but it caused your rig to tip over, so how much can you REALLY carry?

31" or 32" would be as big as I'd go on the stock tailgate mount. Man this is an old picture from 2000:

Bob, it was the combo of 35" MTR's, 84" wheelbase, steep hill and the a$$ end weight.

If you look real close you can read the gas can " ROLL OVER TESTED ".

I had a 35x12.5 on a steel rim on my stock carrier. It was fine, I was just careful not to let the gate swing away too fast. It even survived a few rounds of bumper car action from my buddies. They couldn't resist a big tire to run into I guess.
