any interest in a tire carrier?

I'm mocking up for a tire carrier with jerry can holders and hi lift mount. Once I get it done and the kinks worked out, I could probably get it duplicated. If a half a dozen people were interested, I might be able to get it down to the $500 range.

I did not post this in the vendor section because I am not a vendor. I just wanted to pass along the idea at no profit to me. I wanted a safari gard carrier but they are pricey and hard to find.

Thanks, but I'm going for the cans both on the drivers side look. We are finishing the bumpers on the Toyota Hilux project next week. I will start building it before April 1. When I get it finished, I'll get you guys detailed pics. You can look them over and I will tweak it until you guys are happy. They guy helping me build it will do the others. It will help me out because the next thing I need will be free from him.

I'm down. Where will it attach? The frame/crossmember or body? Any preliminary sketches?

I could be interested for the right design. I would like two cans if possible.

OK. I'll bump this thread when the pictures are taken of my completed one in a month or so.
