Here's the carrier without the frame mount. I don't have any pictures off-hand of the bottom mount but you can see it from any rover that has the mantec carrier, e.g. John Lee or Kevin Collins. Best investment you can make on your SW Phil! I guarauntee you'll be happy with this mod!! I wish I wouldn't have waited to do it because the spot-welds on my rear door snapped before I got the carrier!

Regards

DJ

I'm glad Phil asked this because I'm also currently looking at tire carriers and the Mantec is at the top of my list.
Can those that have them indicate who they bought them from?
Thanks.

I have a Mantec Spare Tire Carrier on mine SW as well and highly recommend it. I purchased it from 4x4 Connection in Winchester, VA. I think he just happened to have one at the MAR in 2002 that I took off his hands. I am not sure if he is a Mantec dealer or not.

Got mine from Simmonites UK.

Hey DJ,
Did you have any trouble with the frame mount like having to remove the bumber?
Did those reflector holes get in the way of your drilling?
Thanks,MM

Nope! You just pop that plastic reflector off and drill into the rear X-member. No need to remove anything but the speaker fascia inside.

I believe mine was about $360 including shipping. I bought mine through a company called Stable Energies in NJ (http://www.stable-energies.com/). They, in turn, got it from Saftey Devices UK (http://www.safetydevices.co.uk/oldsite/4x4/index.html). If interested in this route just give them this P/N: RBL1680SWC [B]
