Spare Tire Carrier Mod

Just wanted to spare a little project I completed a few weeks ago. Some of you may have seen the swing away gas can/hi-lift mount that I fabbed up to mount on the left side of the D-90, swinging opposite of the stock spare tire carrier. This ended up being a pain the butt to open and was cumbersome. My next project was using the stock spare tire carrier, but moving the spare tire to the left about 8" (almost centering it), then adding the gas can and high lift mount on the right side. I also reinforced the stock carrier, and built a mount to tie the top carrier pivot to the internal roll cage for support. Here are a few pics and a link to the project:
