If you have a rear wheel carrier that holds spares behind the rear barn doors or tailgate, do you cover your spare(s) or just leave them uncovered? Given that the spare(s) are going to be getting bulk sun-time and never rotate on the spare wheel carrier(s), what's the likelihood that spare(s)...
We got our sill from Real Steel Cruiser Parts along all the repair panels, with the exception of the small patches I got from @rkymtnflyfisher .(Thanks Ryan)
After fretting about where exactly to mount the spare tire carrier, studying @TractorDoc pics, waiting on the right latch, finally got...
Howdy, I need to find (1) 295/70R18 tire for a spare. Currently running Cooper ST Maxx in that size and need to find a 5th for a spare. ST Maxx would be ideal but open to any type AT or MT tire in that size
Located in KC, MO. Willing to travel close or pay shipping if seller is willing.
Looking for the spare wheel/tire carrier bracket that bolts to the rear door of a 70 series. Assuming they are the same on all models... correct me if I am wrong please!
Hoping to ask the right crowd by posting here.
As a relative newcomer to the 80 offroading world, I've been researching (extensively) what constitutes a "trail spare" and when its a good idea to carry them. Read: some links below. (Many omitted because I don't want to write an essay.)

I've got a 1994 FZJ-80. My buddy and I are doing the Mojave Road. It's ~140 miles off road from the Colorado River to Barstow, CA. I've heard 3 days is a good amount of time.
Driving ~400 miles to get to the start and ~300 miles back.
Good selection of sockets / wrenches, even my...
Hello folks, I am in search of the hook mechanism attached to the rear sill of my 40 as the PO replaced the sill but did not put that part back on. I have the complete spare tire carrier. Oh, I'm also looking for the interior T handle for the back hatch and a gas tank door with hardware. See pics.
Been fixing up my 86 SAS 22RE auto 4runner on 35's to use mostly on the trails in the mountains and at the beach. Its Lincoln Locked so its not a great commuter. I'm a pretty solid back yard mechanic and I've been thoroughly going through this rig to tie up any lose ends. I'll be headed up to...
I have changed my wheel / tire size and don't think I'll need the stock spare. When I went to remove it, I couldn't leave that chain hanging there and to remove the chain I had to remove the cross member.
Do I need to put the cross member back? Does it add to the structural strength of the...
Good evening ladies and gents! The PO of my FJ40 replaced the rear sill on mine and it no longer has the hook to latch the spare tire carrier too. I am curious if anyone has one of these? I have that actual carrier.
