    DIY tire carrier and tailgate

    I decided it was past time to have a spare tire so here goes my idea. I have a completely new designed tailgate and started on my tire carrier.Click image for larger version.

    Just noticed in pic handle is not straight it's just tacked on one side. Still got more work to do before finish welding.

    It's just me being a perfectionist because I am building it. After the first beer stop on the trail no one would notice but me.

    I got the flange cut out that the tire will mount to. I now just have to weld some tubing to it and get it welded to carrier. Then will have to figure out the right strength lift struts to lift the carrier.

    If you wanna get real snazzy run some wire down the inside of each of those tubes going to the tailgate and some holes on the backside to put in some of those little round LED lights to light up the inside of the bed / inside of cooler lol. Could even run some of the little red ones across the top bar to act as 3rd brake light or have them lit all the time as a marker light. Just a couple ideas that popped in my head as i was looking at the pics.....what you have now is looking pretty dam nice, I like the mad max looking tailgate better than the stock plastic one back there lol


    My car hauler trailer came with those little round LED marker lights and they are pretty dam bright.

    That is in the plans I am going to wire lights to light up bed. I am also going to have my screw in whip light come out of the center of my spare tire. I have to get all the tube fab work done then start on fishing wires through.
