correct i was... it served its purpose but looked ugly as shit but now tryin to figure out a mixture of a headache rack with spare tire holder that doesn't look bad, but doesn't cost too much.
Kinda along the same lines as this as far as the looks go. (closest pic I could find quickly) http://i433.photobucket.com/albums/q...mapicture2.jpg
The swing out function is so I can get to my box mounted near the cab with out having to take the tire off. Still trying to decide how to make it all work and what type of clearence I'll actually have for the tire. Otherwise, I guess the other similar look would be one of those angled tire carriers that mount to the bed.
I've always thought the angled tailgate replacement ones look really off-road-y as well. I'd just be concerned about the frame bending unless you reinforced it.
