Spare tire on the roof with SD external cage

Looking for mounts that will work with the SD external cage. I am going to move my spare from the door to the roof. I don't have a roof basket but the SD cage has cross bars in the rear, looking to secure it there.

Thanks,
Alex

Either reuse a rear door mount or add a D1 rear door mount. Either way brackets are needed.

Just a thought.... How are you planning on lifting it up and down when you need to swap out a flat?

Yeah not going to lie that sounds terrible - I'm in decent shape and I struggle to get my 33" spare KM2 up to my door rack. I can't imagine getting it on/off the roof!

And that additional weight up high raises your center of gravity
I'd bet that after running a couple of off-camber trails you'd quickly get that tire down.

Simmer down on the weight and center of gravity. It's for 1 long road trip and then it's going back on the door.

Thanks for the mount ideas. Anyone have any other ideas to look into?

Cheap and easy - ratchet straps into the basket part that is built into the last section. Anything else and you will need to add cross bars to cage to support tire.

For one trip it's not worth investing much. Is the tire on the door in the way?

Ratchet straps are perfect for the budget. I need to carry bikes on the door since the hitch is taken for the trailer.

If Alex doesn't want the hood mount parts, then I do. Mine is missing pieces.

Agree with other, I suggest ratchet straps. The ones that actually ratchet, not those horrible friction buckle straps or what ever they're called.

why not go with a thule type bike rack for roof? buy used and sell it when done. a trailer and bikes in the back sounds to me like a pita, plus you wont be able to open the back without removing the bikes.
