They don't have any. Just use a steel punch or old screw driver and knock them out. It can be a bit of a PITA. Don't be afraid to give them a good whack to get them out. A bench vice works nice to press them in. I bit of grease will help. Really a not a bad job. Best of luck

Hmmm. Scott - I really wish I know what I was knocking out.

This is the whole swing-away tire carrier to SW tailgate kit. Misc plates with holes. Couple bags of nuts and bolts. Replacing the door mounted tire carrier.....

I think he was talking about the bushings.

Wish I had a copy... I did install a similar one on a 90 a while back. The only tricky thing I remember is to make sure the load is on the body no the door.

Defiantly make an extra bracket to reinforce the tub on the inside (think L ). They can really f-up your body if you put a heavy tire on it.

If you want a hand give me a ring.

Hey Steve -

I'm going to e-mail you seperately about it. Been up in the Sierras all last week. Figured I'd come take a look at yours - but NO!, you have an Ambo now..... Maybe get you to give me a road map of what goes where. And yes, your body cracks were high in my mind when I bought it, but doubt I'll ever see the miles and roads you have with yours.

OK, so this is what I have. Scott sent me a pic of his ST tailgate which helps to get basic layout (thanks again) - but I have a few..different...pieces.

Obviously, no plug/socket arrangement that hold the door open as per the ST's

Mine is for an SW - which I'm sure is the key to the big, rectangular plate on the left. But where does it go? Doesn't match any of the bolt patterns of the hinge pieces. I had thought it would mount to the door and take the left hinge piece, but no pattern match. Or do I drill in place? I assume the smaller brackets on the right are part of the High Lift mount - but anyone with a detail pictuire would be a big help. Hinges brackets that mount to the rear tub are larger than the ST parts, but that can only be a good thing....

Does the plate fit inside the door between the steel vertical braces? Odd holes though...
That is my best guess...

Eric,

this write up Chris posted appears to be very similar to what I have. Not sure about you but hope it helps (it's all here if you can find it!)

I am in the process of buying a carrier from them at the moment. I get a much better response when I phone up.
