Shrockworks Tire Carrier

I talked to the guy at Shrockworks and they mentioned they are not making the D90 Tire Carrier anymore. He said if there were 3 or mote interested he would consider doing a run of these . . .

I want one, so are 2 other takers? I think there is a link in the vendor section for pictures and the like . . .

Good choice guys. But I recommend seeing if they can improve the retaining pin and cable. I just got my tire carrier from shrockworks (september '04) and I am really happy with it. But the pin and cable need to be improved. Instead of a pin, I would suggest a retaining plate (?) that doesn't allow the carrier to swing far enough to contact the truck. Probably just past 90degrees so that the door is allowed to open freely. The pin can still be used to prevent the carrier from swinging closed.

Hi All,
I stopped making these because they are really complicated, they have many many pieces and parts and the volume is such that it is difficult to stock parts. Since there are 3+ of you, I'm willing to do one final run, but this will in all likelyhood be the last of them.

mdmccallum / Mike,
There is a tab on the latest version that keeps it from opening much past 90deg. Red arrow in attached pic. Does your's have it? If not, email me, and I'll see what I can do about getting you a tab or a hinge with the tab already on there.

Jim

They are bare stell std. I can powder coat them semi-gloss black if you want. It's $80.00.

They have to ship truck freight. I hate to guess since it varies so much, but say $70-100 to a business address as a rough guess. With your zip code I can get you an exact quote. All freight carriers tack on an additional $50-60 fee for a residential delivery.

I guessed pretty good. $75.00 to a business address and $130.00 to a residence.

How much of an extra charge would it be if you have to make the bottom bar of the tire carrier curve up a bit to clear a dixon bate hitch? I saw this in one of the pictures and realized that I would have the same problem. Thank you.

If you want this - Call Shrockworks NOW

He is going to give us a week to fish or cut bait. He gets three guys to place orders he will make a final run . . .

You don't want to be the one guy who gets left out of this limited edition tire carrier, wishing you had only responded earlier.

I called and he put me on the list, he said it will take 4-5 weeks to get all the parts together, assemble, and send out.

I have waited 11 years of my marriage for the budget appropriation for my toys, now that I am this close I don't want to see the opportunity slip away. What if the money for the tire carrier ended up getting spent on indoor plants - then how would you guys feel?

I ordered mine tonight. I got the dual jerry cans, The custom bottom bar to accomodate the dixon bate hitch, and I had them powdercoat it. I just hope that I can wait the four weeks!

Just curious: will the Shrockworks tire carrier fit around the rear ladder assembly for the Land Rover Safari Roof Rack?

I've never had one in here to try it, but it looks like the high lift would likely hit the rack and even a single jerry can might hit, so I cant recommend it.

I added three new single Jerry can SW pics at the bottom here:

Jim I will call you about the hinge with the tab. Mines doesn't have a tab.
