    Default Bumper mount tire carrier?

    I'm looking at replacing the rear bumper on my m1009 with the step bumper from my m1028 parts truck. I'd like to mount a swingaway spare tire carrier. Knowing that the body sheet metal isn't made to support that weight, does anyone know a specific application that will mount only to the step bumper, and swing out far enough to allow me to drop the blazer tailgate? I want this because I'm mounting q78-16 TSL Swampers on the blazer, which are nearly 36" tires, and I don't believe a spare will fit in the oem spare location.

    Yeah, I am in on this... I would like to actually move my spare tire to a swing out spare tire carrier mounted on the bumper of my truck. I am wanting to do the same thing you are doing.

    That system looks nice, but will it clear the lift/shackle points on our CUCV's?

    I don't have my cucv handy to measure.
    Probably depends how the receiver is mounted

    Mike_Pop has done some nice modifications on his M1009 in the past.

    I plan on making a custom swing out tire carrier. If you plan on making one as well, then this kit off amazon is a staple for any fabrication you plan on doing. Has the most important part, the hinge. And the reviews are pretty positive. Actual has a bearing in it.

    DIY4x4 has a bumper with a spare tire carrier if you want one pre assembled.

    I have to wonder if a tire carrier from a jeep, old or newer could be altered to work?

    Would you like a bumper mounted? Or swing out mounted to the rear tail light bulkhead?

    If you are going to build a swing out that is the width of the bumper make sure to use a really burly spindle. With how wide our trucks are it puts a lot of leverage on the spindle. Also helps to use a spindle that is has a bracket to capture the top to make double shear.

    There was a give, pay it foreward of a 1009 tailgate that had a tire mount bracket bolted to it. I believe I seen it yesterday? It does seem like a lot of weight to hang on the tailgate?

    Its in parts for sale
