Spare Tire Mounted On Top Of Bumper

I have a cargo rack/bike rack in my camper hitch receiver. Will post that when completed.

So I needed to find a place for the spare tire since it would interfere with the cargo rack. I did not want to go with under the camper, on the front as it is heavy enough up front or in the back of the pickup.

Solution was put it on top of the bumper. Figured it came installed on it and was actually mounted aft of the bumper a few inches so there were some more forces on the bumper from the twisting of the way bumper spare tires are mounted, up and aft.

No more twisting forces, weight of tire is straight down.

1/4" steel black corner bracing and a couple of long steel straps I painted black. 3/8" bolts and a bit of black spray paint.

Not shown in the picture but I use a couple of ratcheting straps crisscrossed to hold in place. Very little movement forward so not worried about it hitting the camper back wall. The long front vertical straps are pretty stout. I have a piece of black pipe foam insulation between tire and back wall just in case.
