    Anybody know where to get a solid swing away spare tire carrier?  Would like something like the BTB type with a place for a cooler or jerry can, but am not really thrilled about spending $700.00 or so.  Thought maybe someone might have hunted down a better deal.

    78crzr, check out the Bulletproof Manufacturing site (www.bulletproofmfg.com), they specialize in j**ps but they do make some stuff for cruisers. Most swing away tire carriers intended fo j**ps can be modified to fit cruisers without to much trouble. There used to be this company out of New Mexico, Stout Equipment, that specialized in toyota bumpers and the like. If you do a liitle searching you may be able to find them, although I haven't heard anything about his company in a while. You could always design your own carrier and weld it up yourself our have your local fab shop do it, depending upon the simplicity of the design it could very easily be done for well under $700 :G
