If any of the previous buyers would like to chime in on the design please feel free. Lbowlers had a hell of a time as my design did not account for the difference in the 1997 3rd brake light bar. Also, I need the shop to take into consideration the thickness added by the black powder coat.

Light bar change?

Yep, never new it. The 94s and 95s ST light bars have a very tight bend coming off the latch plate side and the 97s have a more distinctive 90 degree. I am not sure why they switched the design or maybe the manufacturer but Lbowlers made me aware of it and then I stopped by British Car Service last week and both of the 97s that they had had the same design as Lbowlers.
Who knew....

I have to say I love my tire carrier. I have been waiting for something like this for a few years. The thing is rock solid. My old tire carrier would rattle with every major bump I drove over. Now my tire carrier is silent like it should be. The gas can holders and the high lift brackets work perfectly. Great design and great execution.

This carrier looks awesome. I like the versatility in the design. Any thoughts to producing a variant for UK and ROW-spec trucks? I'd love to have this carrier, but I don't think it would work with the configuration of the tail lights on our ROW trucks.

If other owners of UK/ROW-spec trucks are interested, please chime in.

carrier

Jon,
Thank you for the input and I have put a little thought into a row version.
ROWs have a light at the right side corner capping which I think will clear the hinge but would be blocked by the current position of the tire. I believe that is why the mantec swing away hinges start near the SW rear door.

It may be a matter of swapping the tire area and basket area. I could give that a try on the next run and see how it turns out. I think the current configuration may have to get rid of the ability to use a door attached swing away arm (dog bone thingy on the NAS ST) so it would just clasp and de-clasp (if that is a word) to the cross member. ROW folks, please chime in if you have an interest.
Clay

Jay,
Just may take you up on that . Keep you posted and I know what you mean about funding. I have to clear out some of my inventory of parts lying around here soon as momma is not gonna be happy with me. And when momma ain't happy, momma refers to the defender as that "piece of sh%t".

Taking deposits for the cariers. Please PM me for information.

Also, I am doing a carrier for a ROW owner. The carrier will be exactly the same hoop style but will have a more centered Tire and a high lift jack mount. It will not have a platform for jerry cans. Please PM if you are interested.

Clay,

Not sure how far you got with the carrier for a ROW truck but if you are keeping it simple you might want to look at this:

Barry,
Thanks for the ideas! Also thanks for the suggestion about other places that may benefit from the carrier.

I am interested in a ROW carrier. Do you think it would work to remove one Jerry can holder and move the tire over a bit? I like the Jerry can holder, but could get by with one.

Row

I will work on that configuration one they are doing this run. I will have them start with the bend/carrier, tire holder jeffy can platform and high lift in modular format, wiggly them around for fitment and see what I can come up with .
