Talking Buying a 110 pickup, some questions

Well im a few weeks from buying a RHD 83 110. It hasa truck cab and pickup bed and tailgate.

Any suggestions on where to put the spare? the hood seesm like an ok place butid rather have it on the rear bumper somehow.

Most rear bumper soultuions are from swing out tailgates not swing down.

ANyone know of anythjing univeral that would fit in a hitch receiver?


Thanks for helping out the new guy.

Also, is there a definitive source for manitnece schedule?

You can mount it back of the cab, which takes up way to much space. I have a 235/85r16 on my hood and have no problems.

I bought the haynes book for my maintenance. Also start getting used to leaks on your driveway, they are normal. When it stops leaking it is time to refill that particular fluid.

The trucks I have seen have the tire mounted along side the fender. Some of the inner fenders had an indentation for the tire. You could also do the conversion on the tailgate to a side hinge and use the swing away carriers, which are expensive.

Ah Im quite used to it by now, ive owned about 6 BMW e30s of all types and have been dealing with my girlfriends saab for too damn long.

THat the same size tires im puttin on this truck, it would just seem a tad unbalanced to me with a spare on the hood and nothing in the rear.

The Kaymar tire carrier that I have should work with a tail gate:

I used to have mine mounted on the rear bulkhead and also hated the idea of loosing so much space so I made myself a rear bumper/ tire carrier that swings open. The hole thing cost me less than 150$ of material and has worked amazingly well for the last 2 years.

Series 109 and 110's can have the spare mounted up in the tub, just inside the galvanised top rail.

As was said, there is a piece you can buy that (after cutting a large square hole) you pop rivet in, and the wheel sits in it (only by a couple of inches) then the wheel is held on with a clamp, similar to the bulkhead fixing.

A pic of my hood mounted spare, and a pic of a 1983 truck cab that I just sold to a chap in the USA. It should have the spare wheel carrier in the back the same as this one.

My Hi-Cap came with it in the bed (like Julian's picture). Didn't like it there as it took up too much space. I've since moved it to the hood. Doesn't bother me a bit (235/85).

I've got a hood and stick set on the back. I usually remove it for the winter though.

For any SW owners reading this.......
Although I do like the dynamics of the single pivot chassis mounted carriers, the over-centre latches are not allowed by some vehicle inspection authorities, as anyone trying to get out via the back door cannot.

Thats the factory location. There is a threaded rod that comes out from the capping that secures the wheel witha lug or wing nut. As mike said these models usually have "well" that rivets into the top of the rear ineer fender. Some trucks simply have a plate there and you simply drill out the rivets and drop in the well. These parts are readily available.
