Hey all,
Now it's the time to get a tire carrier to fit on my 36's, so i need your advices if you have a style I should go for, if you have any measurments which can make my job easier to build one.

What's a good paint or metal coating to use or apply what will withstand the abuse more than others?

It's gonna go on a 2000 TJ.
thanks in advance.

rear bumper and tire carrier

pthorne on this board builds a sweet bumper, rack, tire carrier combo. I will contact him to see if he can post any pictures. He has built 5 or 6 of them so far and they seem to get better every time. He has built them for CJ's, YJ's and TJ's, all sweet.

one rack is currently holding a 37" MTR.

here's what I did .....

bottom bumper is 2x5x3/16"

The hinge is 1.5" solid round bar with a 2.5"x0.5" wall DOM tube sleeving it. I can get a sketch of it if you wish.

Swing out is 2x2x1/8"

My 35" spare should come to just about een with the middle of the bottom 2x2 on the swing out.

I had people tell me this wasn't thick enough. Once that thing was welded together .... its plenty strong. I also have a gusset on the piece that goes b/t the round plate with the studs and the carrier. Check out the other pics on the link.

This thing it stout and not all that heay.

My buddy pthorne is out of commission for a couple of days. He's driving up to Oregon to pick up a motor for his jeep. I talked with him today and he will probably post some picks this weekend.
