Ok, I posted several weeks back that I was working on fabricating a tire carrier to work with my OEM bumper and promised that I would post some pics once it was complete. You will find my previous post here: https://forum.ih8mud.com/showthread.php?t=50575&highlight=oem+tire+carrier I have been very pleased with the design. Like I said in my past post, I mirrored the design off of a carrier Christo made several years back w/ some minor modifications. I spent some time on the latch system because I wanted it to look somewhat factory plus be strong. I know this type of set up is not for everyone, but I figured there are several guys out there that would be interested in this as an alternative.
