Spare Tire Hi Lift Jack Mount

Here is my version of the spare tire jack mount.

The base plate is 3/16" steel and all other components are 1/8" steel. It is all TIG welded together and powder coated. The base plate should let the user place the jack at any angle they desire.

This sits behind the tire, and the jack mount end slides into the receiver after the tire is in place. It extends from 4" to 5 3/4" to allow for different wheel/tire combinations. (Spacing is measured in between the base plate and the jack clamp, which equates to the distance from the rear of the wheel to the outside edge of tire.)

The bolt pattern is 5x6.5 which should match the Defender, Disco 1 and RRC.

D-90 price is $155 shipped.

Cheers,
Jeff

Looks pretty cool.I'll take one.I hate the one I have.The base mounts the the rear crossmember and the third brake like bar.So Every time you need to open the tail gate you have to take it off. PITA.

Thanks for the compliment.




This would be a good item for anyone here to put on their Christmas list!

Any idea on max tire size this will accomodate? I meant to send you some detailed shots of the Thule rack to see if your plate could pull double duty as a bike rack carrier when not in use as a hi lift mount.

Here it is on my truck. It doesn't give you the full effect though because my tire doesn't fit the studs on the door mount

Not sure of max tire size. If you want to measure your wheel/tire width from the inside of the wheel to the outside of tire that could go into the database.

I would love to see what it would take to go from this to the Thule or Yakima racks. I definitely see this as a modular system that can be adapted to fit your needs. If you get a chance to get any details on that I would appreciate it. I should probably go to REI on my way home from work one of these days and measure the different systems.

Thanks
Jeff

Maybe I'm wrong but it looks from the pic as if the HLJ will smash one of the tail lamps or put a dent in the body if the door swings all the way open. Does the door check hold it from getting away?

Jeff, it looks great. The shaft length will determine the tire size limitations. When I put 35's on my truck, I needed to lengthen the shaft of my SG one.

I would love one for a spare tire bike rack as well. I have some pieces out in the garage will take a look and post pics later.

Thanks Scott.

Bill- I reckon you are right that it will probably ding up your truck if you let the door get away from you and it is oriented in an incorrect manner. Good thing about this is it's adjustable so a person could choose a position that will not damage their truck if the door gets away from them. If you had a spare tire carrier it would probably not be an issue at any angle.

Jeff, are the square tubes you are using 2 inch? If so, would we still need the big round tube? I would prefer to have a bike attachement I can attach quickly to just stick straight out and hold 2-4 bikes and a separate attachment for the jack.

BTW, you should Mark this product before the design is lifted and resold.

The square tubes are 1.5" and 1.25". The 2" just barely fits through the alloy wheel so I stepped it down a bit in case other wheels were too tight. Not sure what round tube you are talking about.

I still need to go to the bike shop and look at what's out there. I'm not sure if I would be into building bike racks, but making adapters to accommodate existing systems would be more likely. I will consider it all though if people want it, and clearly y'all do.

AFAIK there are 3 different spare tire bike racks on the market that work pretty well so I agree with what you are saying about just doing a plate for existing systems. If I can dig up the Yakima pieces I have I will shot a pic.

Also putting 4 bikes on the spare tire carrier would be too much weight. Depending on the bikes, 2 is almost pushing it.

Also what people should realize is the bolt patter for the carrier is different for a soft top and a wagon. Obviously the same wheel pattern but which bolts of the wheel that are used are different. If you are making a plate that has the full lug pattern it isn't an issue but you should keep it in mind.

I have attached a pic of the stock Yakima plate with an adapter plate screwed to it on my st to show how it works
