Re: Tire Carriers

Just came across this bumper. Pretty awesome and a great price.
May want to contact them first tho for lead time if you need it fast. Looks to be a one man fab shop.

Softcore Industries LLC $950 Bare steel
https://www.softcoreindustries.com/p...t-tire-carrier


I also thought Dirtbound had a swing out but my work blocks their site apparently. Lol.

Re: Tire Carriers

If i didnt already have a slick custom tube swingout to go on my rig, I think I would do the Softcore or AJ's only because I want the cut and fold.

Re: Tire Carriers

I am currently building a tire/ gas can carrier that will use existing trailer hitch. I should be in it around $100 using parts that readily available. It should be done later this week and I will post pictures then.

Their site says you can add a swing out tire carrier to their rear bumper but I couldn't find it.

Re: Tire Carriers

I guess Detours USA is temporarily closed for reorganization and relocation.

Bummer.

I liked their concept.

Re: Tire Carriers

Detours has been "temporarily closed" since about this time last year. They do have a Facebook page, but I wouldn't expect to see anything from them any time soon.

THIS is the route I went, and it indeed did end-up only costing about $100 all told. Mine comes out of the main hitch tube itself though so I still have a usable receiver point to tow and/or pull with.

will be doing the same. was thinking swing-out with axle spindle variety but look forward to see what you guys do with hitch mount.

dropping back or to the side? I'll have 37s in the near future so still leaning pretty hard toward swing-out

Tire Carriers

I'm not a huge fan of tire carrier's for a few reasons, hatch accessibility and ground clearance are my two biggest issues with them. I needed something for the occasional trip where I need more room in the jeep and a place to mount Jerry cans, so I built a hitch mounted one that's easily removable

I have a couple more pictures of it on the Jeep, doesn't really show the design or anything. I could take a few pictures of it if you're interested.
