I thought I would post up some pics of my latest fabrication work.
I previously posted in this section my steel flares http://www.ausjeepoffroad.com/forum/...d.php?t=143802
This time I thought I would tackle a spare tyre carrier as i felt like my spare was a bit too heavy for the rear tailgate hinges and latch.
I also wanted to be able to carry extra fuel on board and I'm too cheap to buy a bigger fuel tank or sub tank.
I already had a Smittybilt XRC rear bar which had the mounting facility for a swing away carrier.
I ended up buying this stub axle kit and grinding down the square edges to fit into the round hole of my bumper.
I then just started fabricating the carrier up out of some box section steel
I didn't really have a plan except to say I knew I wanted to have the Jerry Cans behind the Spare tyre and against the tailgate.
So I just kept welding stuff together and seeing how it looked as I went.
More to come
