Hi there,

Pedram and I built a rear bumper and tire carrier for my RRC. We still need do some modification to the gas can holder and looking for ideas of what to built on all that extra space. thinking in building a cooler holder right on top of the gas cans. Not sure yet.

Here are some of the pictures of the tire carrier.

Looks great Antonio. Tell Pedram great job!

Can you ask Pedram if he would be interested in making one for my Safarigard bumper for my RRC; already has the hole pre-drilled on ea end; just need the swing away unit.

Thanks Ron.

I will ask Pedram to get in touch with you and see if he has the time to build you a rear tire carrier. Are you looking for a single swing door or double like mine?

Maybe I can have you help me fix my bumper. Would like to change the pivots, but not sure what to do, and would like to secure them better. Maybe just the draw latch would work.

No problem. I got time mostly after 4pm weekdays and most of the day/nights on weekends. If you want to get on it PM me for my contact info. Any pictures?

I hear you need more than a tire carrier repair at this time Mike. I think this was the same reason Antonio sold his Classic. Let me know what the problem was when you find it.

SO what do you think about Nicks set up after MORG this last weekend?

I really like his rear bumper tire/can setup. My rear bumper does not have the 1/4 panels cut at all, so the bumper is great, but not my taste I guess. I am not big into the cutting away as I like the lines I have currently. But that bumper is not yours, right? That bumper was in place, and you added the carrier and gas can holder? I think it looks great. My problem/s are:

The nuts on the bolts holding the carrier down come loose in use and the carrier is not on a bearing at all. The latch mechanism is really not there and I have no lock down for the gas can.

If you could make me a tire carrier/gas can set up like Nicks, and adapt it to my current bumper I'd be very happy.

Mike, the rear bumper is a Rovertym. I went heavy duty on everything (the spindles, latches, guess even the lock).

Took some more day time pictures of the carrier; will post later.

Yes I can buddy. No problem. I wanted to do Ron's, but he isn't even attempting to get a hold of me. ????? Go figure. He asked for help and just leaves it like that.
