This unit lets the DIY fabricator have a closure system just like the professionals use that creates a rattle-free tire carrier. Included is a t-handle bolt that threads into the CNC machined threaded block and the DOM tube spacer that welds through a 2" tire carrier to make the closure system complete. Perfect for making your own Jeep tire carrier. Assembly and welding required.

 

This kit will come as four(4) pieces:

  • The solid bar stock will be need to be welded to the socket-head bolt to form the T-handle.  We usually weld this 1/4" off-center so that if it loosens while driving the heavy end will rotate to the bottom and not fully un-thread.
  • The 1"OD tubing will fit through 2" wide tire carrier tubing.  We cut this piece a little long so that it can be ground flush after welding.  We usually bevel the carrier tubing to get good penetration.
  • The "tapped tombstone" will be welded to the bumper assembly and fitted so that the T-handle can slide through the carrier sleeve and threaded easily.
  • Make sure to have a rest block (UHMW plastic works great) close to the T-handle end of the carrier to take the load off the hinge and to ensure alignment with the threaded "tapped tombstone".  You want to have just a little bit of pre-load on the rest block when you swing the carrier into the closed position.
