Tire Gate flat spare tire mount

I want to thank snoboarder for pointing me on to this, and all the PM's I sent.
Alot of you may not like this for many reason, to much room taken up in the bed, rather use straps etc. For me a perfect fit, here are some steps I went through.
Directions are basic, take a good long look underneather before you drill a hole, make sure you alignment is dead on.
Here is what was in the box

Here is the top plate with the screws added, I used a large round course file since I drilled the holes a tad bit smaller 3/8" for the four screws and 15/16" for the large center hole.
Bottom plate

Since I wanted to keep my bed mat, I measured the top bracket and added 1/4" and made my cuts.

Here is it somewhat finished before placing the tire. I looked at a number of ways to run the cable. Decided to run the main shaft down the middle of the coil.

Here is a shot with the wheel on, now the big thing....will my Undercover still close.

YES!! cover closes with room to spare. Still need to get a lock, someone will have one heck of a time stealing this.

All in all I am really happy with the outcome. It is not a mod you just jump into. The center hole is the biggie. Go very slow in drilling, regular bits grab the crap out of the bed, and if you are not carfeful I see someone cracking it.
I was thinking about measuring from the top, "don't do it" get the bottom plate the location you want and start with the center hole first. The rest is "a piece of cake"

I like it! Can't wait to see more pics of it. Is there anyway to lock it?

Well you added more pics and answered my question after I posted.

Looks even better now!

Cool product but wouldnt want it taking up my bed space. seems like a good alternative so you can fit a 33" spare tire when wheeling though.

Nice job.....Is there a reason why the nuts (underneath pic) don't have the bolt threads running completely through them? I see they are nylon lock nuts but I would think there should be at least a 1/4" of thread past the nut.

Could just me and the instructions call for different. enjoy your mod.

I like it. Nice install and write up. Probably should get some 1/2" longer bolts though, they may loosen in time.

To be honest I needed another pair of hands, so in waiting for my daughter to show up I took a few of the pic's.
And you are correct, the threads are 1/4" past the nut now.
