Mantec Rear Tire Carrier

Any of you parts hounds have a Mantec tire carrier you have taken off something and have around? I would like to swap out my Shrockworks carrier since I dont use the extras on it.

I would prefer a factory tire carrier.

Those ones are neat, once I saw a Red D90 in Cape Hatteras that had the Shrockworks with a dual Jerry Can holder and the Hi lift kind of on top behind the Tire.

Mine is the original one Jim made for the SW's. Single can holder. Since I mostly dont ever need the can holder and for some reason my hilift doesnt line up with the pegs, its just a tire holder

Chris,
Is your Shrockworks one for sale? Are they only made to order? I don't see any Land Rover products on their website...

Mike,
Jim discontinued making the Defender carriers. He ran a group buy special before the last run he was going to make.

If I can find a Mantec I will most likely sell this one. Needs to be sanded and repainted but will clean up nice.

Thanks, Mike

Chris, I recommend the Bearmach from John Craddock's. It looks nearly identical to the Mantec. The mounting points all look the same, the only noticeable difference I can see is the flat piece on the carrier itself where the three studs are to hold the wheel.

You can see the difference in these pics if you look closely.

http://www.defendersource.com/forum/...chmentid=18169 (Bearmach)

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3360/...952b94.jpg?v=0 (Mantec)

The Bearmach (including shipping to my door) cost about half what the Mantec costs before shipping.

Just my $.02, but my guess is a used Mantec is still going to go for as much as the brand new Bearmach and you won't have to deal with having it refinished.

Thanks Andrew.. I forgot about them. Is there a dealer here in the US?

Damn that sexified black roll cage on that 110 is hot

With the exchange rate being so good - I got a brand new Mantec (the new style, which requires no rear cross member drilling) from John Craddock's for a grand total of $370.00 - shipped. Got it in one week. Installed it in a few hours that Saturday.

Don't pay the RN price of $500.00, plus shipping...

I don't have pix of my own, but there are some good pics here:

http://www.lro.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=83384#83384

And of course, the Mantec website: http://mantec.co.uk/productdetail.cf...458DE1BC616A94

They mainly changed the bottom mount point so you don't have to drill the rear cross member. For NAS trucks with the rear step bumper, there isn't room for the bolt/nut; so i just put the bolt in upside down - worked a charm.

really confused here, looks the same as all the mantecs ive ever seen. What holes did you use? IIRC the only holes in the NAS rear cross member are for the bumper bolts and the 8 or so in the center.

Do you have a contact for a person at Craddocks?

In the attached pic, the earlier Mantecs had the lower mount bracket like the picture on the right, where it mounts using three bolts to the rear crossmember and stands above the rear crossmember. The pic to the left is the newer style that attaches using four bolts and stays real close to the where the rear crossmember meets the body line.

On my old 97 NAS 90 - two of the three bolts (left and middle bolts of the old style mount) were already there; just hidden under the red reflector. The third hole needed to be drilled. So I stand corrected, the newer style would require more drilling for the rear crossmember.

No specific contact at Craddocks - I just ordered online, then they came back and had me 'order' the shipping as a separate order. Kind of interesting way to do it, but it worked.

The mantec is really a very good carrier.
RN has it new, but it's worth every dollar.
