rear rack bins

So, I finally made good use of the rear rack. Found two bins that fit perfectly side by side. attached to the frame of the rack with U-Bolts. Used PVC caps to cover the nuts on the inside so they wouldn't tear anything. Presto, kids scooters, rug, outdoor toys, backpacks etc., now out of the back of my truck. Moving the spare tire to underneath the TT with a BAL Hide-a-spare system soon.

Also....the containers look awesome, but do they block the brake lights?

Brake lights are still visible. Just the angle of the picture. Will do on the BAL system. Mine is a Grey Wolf 26dbh, should be enough room.

BAL Hide-a-spare

So I decided on the BAL Hide-a-spare, specifically the MODEL 28218: 70 to 75 frame, I-Beam Underslung mount for trailers with enclosed underbelly. There is plenty of room from the tire to the lp gas line, with room to spare. Probably could have gotten away with the non enclosed belly one. But I am happy with it.

As you can see in the pictures, it is no lower than my grey/black tank drain pipe and it was a fairly simple install, just had to get bolts/lock nuts/self tapping screws from lowes.

Hmmmm, I wonder if there is enough room between my midship jacks (which are just in front of the springs) and the stairs. How wide is it?

Mods look pretty good!

Are you going to drag the bracket where the spare tire used to be? In the pics it looks pretty close to the ground.
