    Default One Off Bed Tire Mount

    Progress pics of my most recent project.

    First couple days











    More Work








    We're adding 1 more bar made out of 3 straight pieces with hard bends behind the tire near the front behind the cab. Then adding on a 7" circular 3/8" plate the wheel will sit on and be bolted to with 2 lugnuts, 1 inch raised off the bars with some smaller support tubes underneath.

    I'm helping out, not exactly the fabricator. The ideas/design are mostly mine though.
