I really like design I am just not sure it will handle a 35" tire w/out blocking the taillights and or be too low. I think more pics from diff angles will help me decide. I understand you designed to leave the 3rd in play but I dont have a 3rd anyway............so I woud think that would make it more appealing to most. post some pics w/ a 35 if you can!

It has the shelf like the old Safari Guard for dual jerry cans,

it has a latch to secure it to the frame like a Shrockworks

It bolts up to standard mounts just like a stock ST carrier and will swing away with the back door with th right hardware
It can hold a big tire
It is built like a brick sh*t house

You can get to your highlift quite easily

So I guess I missed the boat.

Similar to the light bars there is little profit for me on these so this may be the only batch I will have made.
Ron, Barry any thougths on the design. Josh I don't need to ask because you'll give it.

Barry, I haven't gotten back to you on the bolts becuase I need to pick more up as the shop lost my batch ARGH!
I haven't been spending much time on the board lately. So I missed quite a lot. I have been waiting for something like this for a while. I missed the last Safari Guard tire carrier by a few hours (another quicker board member beat me to it).
I love the design and the follow through! I want! Send me a pm with the particulars and I will send the paypal. The zipcode for shipping is 60435.

Nice work Clay. I think I need to buy a 90 so I can join in on all the fun. Looks like a very worthy upgrade.

I am looking forward to getting this tire carrier on my truck. I've been looking for this upgrade for a while.

No it doesn't cover the lights - new pictures are with a 255/85/16 and a 285/75/16. If you are running a bigger tire, I can make the mounts an inch over toward the driver's side to accomodate a taller tire.

Price seems fair, post up some better pics and maybe you will more interest?

Dave,
Per your feedback I took some additional shots that shows how far the door will open. The first pics were to just show the swing away arm working.

More pics

More pictures to address some of the questions:

Pic of the entire kit and I will include the 120mm M10 bolt to the crossmember in SS

pic of the carrier not interferring with the lights for a 255/85/16 and a 285/75/16 - keep in mind this is on a 94 and 95 and 97s have round lights so they are more visible using this carrier.

One question was that the tire stuck out too far - that was because the tire in the pic was a 255, I have included a side shot with the 285 so you can see that there is still a a room to get your highlift off but no too much

Pic of the carrier with the door fully open. If used with the swingaway arm from a stock carrier there is a stopper on the swing away mechanism so the door doesn't hit the carrier.

If not using the swing away, the bottom mount will stop the dorr from going past being parallel to the truck's side

Pic of the adjustable crossmember stop as this will prevent the rack from wabbling around while you are driving and it keeps the rack nice and snug to the crossmember.

You beat me to it, I was never satisfied with any of my tire carrier versions but yours looks very nice.

Good Job.

More Pics

O.k. I should have posted these long ago as they are a result of inquiry. Like my original add states that you can use it without the swing arm but I did not post pictures. There is no real weight on the swing arm if you don't use it and the bottom crossmember actually acts as a stop so that you end up pinching the carrier between the stop and the latch. See pictures for example. Also the bottom hinge is made to stop the carrier from swinging around the truck please see photos. Photos are:
1. Tire carrier not using swing arm fully open
2. Tire carrier and rear door open at the same time
3. Picture of the bottom hinge's stop plate
4. Picures of the cross members stop plate.
5. Picture of Tires proximity to body with carrier open all the way

Hope these help if some of you had questions.

Sorry guys I should have consolidated all the pics. Anyway since the carrier latches to the crossmember you don't to run a tailgate. Let the truck go comando
Attached are pics as I removed my tailgate and going to run the truck that way for awhile..I think I may remove the doors as well for giggles.

I just got my Swing away carrier and its very high quality. I was very happy with the construction and powder coating, etc. It is also very well engineered.

I have included a pic of how it showed up and how it looks on the back of my truck. I had to re-engineer the brackets to fit with my bumperettes (which I would have had to do with any carrier).

It would have been a very easy and clean install if I didnt have the custom rear bumperettes, Thumbs up for a great product, thanks for bringing a good product to the site Clay!




I should also mention that I mounted it further to the left so that I could incorporate the bumperettes.

One more picture with the tire and jerry cans on. The tire is a 35" Baja Claw on a steel beadlock wheel, so very large and heavy. The carrier is very sturdy.

My angle is bad on the picture, the tire does not cover the passenger side lights

Yesterday, I spent the afternoon installing my carrier in Clay's driveway. Thanks Clay for all of your help. Besides making a fantastic product, Clay is a wonderful human being for spending so much of his time helping me to install this carrier..Consider your self fortunate to do business with a solid indivdual like Clay.

My Defender is a 97 with dual ladders, and yes this carrier fully opens with the ladders, it's well engineered and built like the proverbial brick shit house. If you are sitting on the fence like I was, all I can say is order one before they are gone, these carriers are by far the best I've been able to find for the price and quality.

Thanks!

I would like to add that Shannon was very patient with the install and was a tremendous help. Since it was a hardtop we had to drill holes for the upper mount to work with the ladder support as typically the hardtops have the tire mounted on the door. I had no idea how much weight that spare tire puts on the rear door and it was a shame to see what that weight had down over the years to a rear door. In addition, we had to trim the plinth for his 97 turn signal and lower hinge but I not sure if that will be an issue for all racks/all trucks. So there was valuable technical information that we both walked away with. His wife's portofino red was a really nice example of a defender.

So far to date - I have mounted the rack on my 94 and it sits snuggly against the lower lights. Dave Hazard had rear bumperettes on his crossmember and had to do some modifcation to the mounts due to the bumperrettes.
There are 2 other members currently with the racks that I am awaiting to hear back from on installation and post upon receipt.

I would greatly appreciate any information on how to obtain one.

Thanks.
