Spare tire Carrier

I had to find a new location to mount my rear bumper mounted tire because I put a bike rack on back. So I looked at winch style and this hide-a-spare and decided to go with hide a spare and boy I'm glad I did. It was extremely easy to mount and I put it right in front of my single axle. Only downside is checking air pressure. I read people putting a extension on valve and mounting it to outside of frame. Myself I just purchased tpms and mounted it to all my tires. But I highly recommend the hide-a-spare
Ps. There are two different types of mounts. One for open frame and enclosed frame.

Ken, if you have a closed in bottom like most, I believe you need to order drop down brackets so the tire clears. I'm not sure if one of the kits come with the brackets or if they're an additional purchase.
What part # did you order?
I been looking into it also in hopes to mount 2 spares. In the end I will probably end up fabricating my own design unless the price is right.

Pice was ok. Under $200 bucks cdn.

I had a credit at the dealer, so I just bought a bunch of stuff.
Don't have any part numbers, but I will mention the drop brackets to him today.

Spare tire Carrier

The I-beam recessed mount Bal 28217 $86 on Amazon is for open beams and underslung bal 28217 $91 on Amazon is for enclosed beams. I would think that drop down bracket would just be longer for enclosed beams ?!?

Have installed 2 of them. Make sure you get the correct model.
If you don't have an enclosed underbelly make sure you have room between the floor joist for the width of the tire if you order the recessed mount.
They do not come with any mounting bolts, or bolts to hold the tire to the carrier.
Mount with the hinge on the drivers side. Used 2 self-tapping bolts to hold the carrier mounts in place and spot welded to the frame. Its a good idea to mount close to the axles as possible because the enclosed underbelly will hang down about 10-12". When mounting the tire, place the valve stem down and on one side or the other of the carrier for easy access to check air pressure. Accessing the tire is not difficult if you can lift 40-50 pounds sitting or bending down. Extending the unit for access to the tire is not difficult. It is basically a larger diameter pipe sliding out of a smaller diameter pipe. Its more difficult to side the carrier back together with the weight of the tire. You may have to bounce while pushing the carrier to close the unit down to rehang the tire.

Reference to the different models available.
