Mantec tire carrier?

Does anybody carry the Mantec tire carrier here, with a td5 mounting plate, or only across the pond? Thanks for your help.

Rovers North has em at a good price.

And to hijack this a bit, anyone seen a good way to mount the mantec when using a half-tailgate? I've modded mine to be swingaway, like the door, but I need to figure out how to mount the attachments to the recessed parts of the tailgate. A fab'd plate would be ideal, but I don't have a shop. Wondering if just big ole bolts or threaded rod would suffice.

Use long bolts and spacers to support the mantec plate.

We have the carriers in stock - may be a bit much shipping from the west coast though.

just to continue hijacking, thanks D-NW, the setup went great. New plate lined up with the top boxed area of the tailgate. For the bottom two mounting points, I used some M10 bolts, a locking nut, and 2 normal nuts to sandwich both the plate and the tailgate skin. It's super sturdy and opens smoooooooth.
