I've got one that came off my NAS 110 if you want. I think it is what you are looking for. I have all the pieces including the door stiffeners in good shape. Make me an offer.

Hey Probably has the Mantec swing on the rear... I know I do, and it makes a huge difference in the performance of the rear door.

I have a used Mantec rear tire carrier (for a D90/110) in vg condition available for $300 shipped. Save yourself the new door in a few years.

I have a bearmach swing-away from Craddock I am using. I am very happy with it, and with the current exchange rate, it was dirt cheap.

I bought a Mantec which will be going on my truck. The door just does not survive with the tire hanging off of it.

If you have a mantec I know it isn't mounted to the door but it looks like there is some brace that hits the center of the door. Does the door still get some load because of this brace? I am about to have my door fixed as it cracked inside and I wanted to know if I just left it alone and went mantec would it still creak like it does now?

It doesn't really get much load per se, but it will still stress the area some. That little dog bone piece should mostly just keep the wheel from swinging freely and ensures that it moves with the door when it is opened. I imagine there is some load once the tire is on there, but nowhere near the load of a full tire, not to mention the stress on the door when you swing it closed with all that weight hanging on it.

Cool - what's with the back mounting plate? Last Mantec I had (on the old 90) didn't have that square tubing in the back, just a flat plate between the door and the plunger-like thingy. Is that how they come nowadays, or is that custom for your rig?

Odds are it will be mine. Isn't there some part that attaches to the rear door?

In the second pic, you can see 4 holes; one in each square tube piece. It appears that is what Brandon was using to attach directly to the door.

I have installed the Mantec carrier before on my old 90 SW. When you remove the stock carrier, you cover it's three holes with a flat sheet of metal that bolts onto the outside of the door. Then on top of that, you bolt the plunger thingy/articulating arm/piston (sorry don't know the proper term) which in turn bolts to the carrier frame.

What I was wondering [sorry for the hijack] was whether or not the new Mantec carriers come this way now with the square tube pieces, or if this is a custom spacer Brandon was using.

looks simply. Not sure I understand the thing that mounts to the door. Does the carrier swing into it? IS it a shock?
