MAY 20, 2010 • BANNING, CA — The Poison Spyder Rear Stinger Tire Carrier is the ultimate rear bumper for hard core rock crawling.
The Rear Stinger is a fold-down spare tire carrier. By pulling the two upper pins, the tire carrier can swing down, making loading and unloading of huge off-road tires easier. Simply roll the tire up into the carrier, secure it with the provided 3-Way Spare Tire Strap, then swing the carrier back up and pin it in place.
The Stinger is fabricated from NC-bent DOM tubing and CNC laser-cut 3/16” plate steel. The integrated skid plate helps the Jeep slide off of ledges and obstacles without hanging up on the spare tire. It also incorporates a license plate mount located in the center of the carrier. The spare tire mounts securely into the carrier using a heavy duty, adjustable 3-Way Spare Tire Strap.
The Upper Corner Mounts are designed to work with Poison Spyder Crusher Corners™ (may also fit other manufacturers’ 3/16” thick corner guards). They are fabricated from CNC laser cut and precision brake-formed 3/16” plate steel and include a convenient CB antenna mount. The Tire Carrier is secured to the Upper Corner Mounts using urethane bushings and easy-to-remove hitch pins.
The Lower Mounting Plate replaces the Jeep’s existing bumper to provide the greatest departure angle possible. The Lower Mount Plate has two sets of heavy duty bushing tabs, where the Tire Carrier attaches using urethane bushings and Grade 8 hardware. The plate also features two integrated, CNC machined 1” thick heavy duty recovery shackle tabs designed to accept 3/4” recovery shackles (sold separately). The Lower Mount Plate attaches to the Jeep with countersunk flat-head stainless steel hardware.
“The Rear Stinger is light weight, high clearance, easy to use and provides a measure of rear-flop protection,” says Poison Spyder’s Larry McRae, “It’s designed for those who spend a lot of time in the big rocks and need a tire carrier that meets the challenges of hard core four wheeling.”
The Poison Spyder Rear Stinger Tire Carrier is available now for Jeep TJ &LJ, coming soon for CJ, YJ and JK. It can be orderd as a complete kit for these Jeep models, or without the Lower Mount Plate, for those who would like to adapt it to a different rear bumper.
