Mantec Wheel Swing

Anybody have any negative views on install of a Mantec wheel swing on a 90 SW?
I took the spare off my wagon to search for a rattle and loved the ease of use to load in Blitzen (doggy) so figure a swing would make the door more secure and look like a D90 again,don't like the look without the wheel.

No negatives at all.

For those of you with a Manteca will it fit a SW with factory roof rack/ladders. If so any idea on max size tire with that in mind?

I have the Mantec tire carrier with the NAS style SD rear ladders. no problem whatsoever. Fits a 35", but in truth, I don't have the NAS rear step bumper doohickey, so I'm not entirely sure with respect to that. Only gripe I have with it is that from my understanding, it doesn't handle too much weight that well... i.e. - Jerry cans, hi-lift, or any other fun stuff in addition to the tire. But for just a tire and wheel (35 swampers and wolf wheels are F-ing H-E-A-V-Y) it seems to be as advertised.

Hope this helps
