    Default Spare tire carrier

    I bet it would rattle around quite a bit especially on the kind of roads where I'd need that second spare.
    I wouldnít think that would rattle at all with a tire or 2 on it. But I donít like the idea of having my spare hanging off the back like that, especially off road. To much chance of it getting hung up on something. On the roof with a tire the size of these monsters would be a tough one to, as you have to get it up and down. If you have to carry an extra spare for off roading I would just suggest putting them in the cargo area, they are easy to get at and will keep them from getting all crappy.
    My only suggestion would be a carrier like is on the full size vans back doors. If you have barn doors you could put one on each door. Though I donít like the idea of that much weight one those weak hinges.

    It would be interesting to see if it made any noise or how it worked. Carying multiple spares is a big deal to a lot of folks, as noted earlier in this thread. If anyone ends up doing this, add a post and let us know.

    I could if someone wants take some pictures of the rack that fits on the back off my full size van door. Hell I could even build one if someone wants but I really don't recommend hanging full size tires off the back of the Burban barn doors.

    Yeah, the photo gallery is a sore subject as well. The developers KEEP on saying that someone will develop a module to add in the latest and greatest photo gallery to this type of message board, but it's not working yet. I've spent several hours trying to get it to work. I'll get it up and running as soon as possible! I will!
