2 Jerry Can Highlift Swing away carrier

o.k. project Z is coming to a close.

Anyway so I had a batch made up of tire carriers using the best from some of the NLA designs out there yet trying to keep it simplistic. This carrier uses the stock upper and lower hinge mounts from a ST and also will use the swing away bar from a ST and come in a semi gloss black powder coat. It holds a spare, two gas cans or cooler and a highlift jack

Also you don't have to use the rack in a "swingaway with the door" configuration but rather unattached if so desired to the rear door.

I recommend all who purchase this to use the latch to crossmember fitting.

So what does the kit include - Full kit will be:
1 rear tire carrier

3 new nuts for aftermarket wheels or early RR classic nuts to hold the spare on to the tire carrier

1 upper rear mount with 1 shoulder bolt and nut and 4 SS bolts, nuts and washer to mount to upper capping

1 lower rear mount with 1 shoulder bolt and nut and bolt 2 tub bolts and nuts (if you want the long bolt that goes through the crossmember that will be extra)

1 cross member mount and 2 bolts, nuts and washers

1 shoulder bolt should you want to use your existing swing away arm

1 latch for the cross member mount and SS hardware (4 bolts and washer)

2 stainless steel wingnuts, washers and lockwasher for the highlift jack

Price $600 plus shipping. Shipping on average will most likely run around $150. Please remember these are sold as is. These are made by a professional fab shop that does a ton of racing Toyota stuff and are extremely sturdy. Does NOT come with a strap for the jerry cans or whatever else you decide to put on the tray.

Pictures are of one of the carrier on my truck and it is using the small swing away arm to move the carrier away from the door when open.

The hardest part of the mounting is getting the swingaway small arm to work as you have, the door, the carrier and the swingaway mount to all get in unison. None of the NAS mounts are exactly the same as I had slightly different bolt patters on my stock swing away spare parts but I was able to make them work and the rack will swingaway with my rear door.
Please PM me if you are interested.

Coming soon with be a kit that includes a door mount and a pivot arm for the rack if someone needs those parts.

This will fit either a ST or a HT, 90 or 110 or possibly series.

Does it cover up the passenger side turn and brake light?

What's the largest tire it fits, etc.?

I like a lot about this except that it appears to cover up the turn and brake signal. Thought about swapping the tire and tank carriers over?

How big is that tire in the pic? That might be part of the reason it is covering the light too if its oversized.

tire carrier

With a 255/85/16 it does not cover up the turn and brake light. Especially cleared of the brake light. Also, since it is mounted on a 94 with square lights from the picture angle I can see why you are asking the question.

What do the shoulder bolts look like? Are they replacements for the factory ones?

ship

Robert,
Just about as everything is done except for I want to include a steel backing plate with the kit. I will have the shop knock them out pretty quickly. It won't be PC in case you want to trim the backing plate to fit the area but it will provide nice support. I have my backing plate welded to my cage and was actually sitting on the tire carrier tray without any problems (with the door closed .

Are the heads the same? The genuine ones are crazy pricey and the mcmaster ones rust quickly. I wanted to see if there was an alternative. Nice job on the carrier btw.

In the pictures I have a 255/85/16 mounted on the tire carrier. I have fitted a 285/75/16 without any covering of the lights. It will fit a 35 with no problem. If you have a taller tire let me know and I will include mounts to the tub that will accomodate a taller tire, just let me know what size tire you are running...just need height in inches.
Regards,
Clay

Ron. thank you.
If I compared the preliminary interest to the actual interest now that they are done I would ask what happend to everyone.
So I ask for input on what folks view as being wrong with the carrier design

- it is $400 less than any other carrier out there.

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!

The price point is definitely nice! Post up some photos from further away, since I think some people are hung up on the tail lights question. I think mine covers up the passenger lights from the same angle you already posted, but they obviously don't cover them up from further away.

It won't work on my 90 but have to agree that you need better pics. For example looking at the pics you posted It looks like it covers the tail lights, looks like the door only opens part way and it looks like the tire sticks Wayyyy out from the body.

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

Dave/Josh - thanks for you input and will get some more pics. Dave your right I should have taken a shot with the door fully open as it opens just as far as the stock one and then there is a stop to keep the door from banging into the rack if you use the swing with the door set up. If not the bottom mount has a tab that won't let the rack whip around and hit the truck.

Barry,
Left you a message about the bolts on your phone though your voicemail greeting was a little creepy. I am not sure what you were trying to say....either you were looking for someone to dress up like Bo-peep or you wanted to dress up for someone as Bo-peep and what was the spanking about. Weird
I am not sure about you L.A. folks.
