I am seeking to remove the spare tire from under the van and place it on the rear door, does anyone know of a good tire mount?
So far so good. I haven't gone off-roading yet. The only thing I noticed is more squeaking/rattling at the door jamb.Hi, Jostalli
The tire with the rims weighs 70 pounds, even with the Reinforcing Kit i am concern the weight will damage the door, have you experienced any issues?
When I open the door? No I'm talking about squeaks and rattles while driving. This van has a lot of squeaks and rattles in the doors and the extra weight just makes it worse.Is that only when you open it or also when you drive?
I will be installing it this weekend. i have purchased the "Rampage 86610 Rear Tire Mount Kit Extender" and will try that one.
I put some extra thick Gorilla Tape on the angle iron parts that contact a painted surface. As far as locking the spare I think I will probably use a cable bike lock. Here is a link to the mount:Did you apply anything between the paint and the brackets? Great job on the build. Any way to lock the tire down? I know they're not super expensive but people will steal about anything. Please post up a link for the Wrangler assembly as others will want to price this idea.
