Such as a Mantec, or stock ST mount. Not mounted to the door itself.

I have it in my garage. I haven't used it in a long time but it was one of the last ones that clears the tire and does not need an adapter for the trailer hole. It is the right size. I can take a pic today. You want to buy it?

Well, of course my spare and jerry can holder require a rack that's significantly longer than most...trying to figure out which one to look out for. Looking local, but PM me with some details. Send it back out here with your mom.

I have a ST and modified the back plate to make the Thule spare me (rear tire mounted rack) to work. The rack itself does not add much weight. Overall it works well.

I thought this was bad for the tire carrier and door.

Talk to cgalpin. You either need his help uploading, or you need to become a "Special Member".
