I had Don at FC Fabrication build me this very cool swingout tire carrier. I already had the Demello-Offroad rear bumper on my FJC and I asked Don to build me a custom carrier. He used a 4x4Labs heavy duty (rated at 7500 lbs) spindle for the hinge. The tire carrier hold 3 jerry cans or a small ice chest where the cans are located and it is super stout. I will be relocating my license plate and light to the carrier. The tire is pushed up high and over towards the driver side to make room for everything and ensure that I don't hit my tire or the cans as I drop off ledges. Here are a few pictures of Don's bitchen art work.

Thanks again Don the carrier turned out incredible!









Don built a cool cam lock mechanism that locks the carrier into place. Lift the arm and unscrew the bolt and the carrier opens up.

A few more pictures... I'm sure Don will add a few more of the bumper work he did.

Apparently Don was angry and pissed at the world the day he made the tire spin-off... :eek: Meat hook anyone?





Cool little rubber snubber to help reduce any deflection.
