Tire carrier rack

Hello all. I have a Rock Crawler swing-out tire carrier made by Currie Enterprises. I contacted the manufacturer and they said that they don't make a rack to go on the carrier. Does anyone have this type of carrier that has found a compatible rack? Thanks for any advice.

somewhat similar to the one I made myself...I am sure you can take some 1" square tubing and make it yourself...

How important is this? I am sure there are folks here that would be happy top make you one, including myself...for the $$$

Depending on the weight of your tires, and other accessories, you may not want the added weight of the rack and what goes in it. What were you planning to pun on the rack.

I also have a home built bumper tire carrier that is similar. I bought an outland rack, the kind that have the basket and carry a jerry can on each side. To fit it up, I welded on risers made from box tubing that just slid over the rack tubing. I then extended the center post of the tire carrier to the height i wanted the rack to support the rack better. Was a simple fix.

here are a few photos that you can see the result.

Let me know if you would like close up pics, i can take them some for you.

I've got 33's. I plan on using the rack for fishing and hunting gear.

The rack looks good. If it's not a problem, I would love to see a close up of it. How much weight do you think it holds?

I added some closer pictures to my yahoo pictures.

One thing to keep in mind when ordering the rack, order the wider one, i got the narrower one and a 33" barely fits and makes it harder to get on the carrier. As for the load it will carry, you will see a piece of aluminum angle at the top of the riser, the load of the rack sits on the riser and the angle bolted in help hold the tilt load. ther weak point of the outland rack is in the leg and tilt weight. I weight 225 pounds and can hang on the rack. I only carry stuff like tent, recovery rope/straps, sleeping bags and that. I try to load the lighter stuff in the rack, since the weight is high. So other than the 2 jerry cans, noting really heavy goes up there.

Hope this helps, Tom

My rack is very similar. same tubing diameter etc. and a rock hard 4x4 trail rack worked great for me (http://www.rockhard4x4parts.com/imag...EAR/063_63.jpg). Trailtoyz on here is the vendor who sells them.
