custom spare tire mount

Well i finally had this made by one of my dads friends. i told him i wanted somethin that would look cool, and easily removable if i needed to haul something. this is what he came up with. its made of stainless steel, its rusted because they went to sand blast it but there wasnt sand in the machine it was metal so theres tiny peices of metal embedded in it but to solve this i plan on takin the spray on bed liner i have left over from my rocker panels and spraying it. its sturdy as hell i can jump on it with no movement at all and easliy removed with the 2 bed bolts. i bought a set of lug nut locks at the local auto parts store to keep the tire safe. ill get more pics of it painted and with the tire mounted!

It looks good, but you might want to consider some additional tubes running from the horizontal to just below the wheel mount itself. Same from under the horizontal tube to the downtubes attaching to the plates bolted to the bed/frame. A little triangulation is never a bad thing and I'd hate for anything to come loose while you're wheeling. Ideally you'd also have some supports further back in the bed to take some of the strain off of the plates under the bed bolts.

There will be a lot of torsional force on the whole assembly once you get a wheel on there, and with every bump the weight of the wheel & tire will try to rotate the tubes clockwise in this picture.


What thickness plates did you use as the base?

Not bashing your idea or execution at all here. I just want to make sure you and everyone around you stays safe.

thanks thanks. haha i didnt weld them one of my dads buddies did the work. best of all the whole thing was free! but im gonna hook him up with my stock tires for the work. i did think about some additional support to take some strain off the bed bolts. ill take a better look into it once i get the tire mounted. and im not sure about the plates either 1/8 or 1/4 ill check and get back to you.

well theres about 5-6 feet of stainless steel tubing, then the 2 small plates and the round one the tire sits on is about 6 inches round. i have no clue how much stainless costs though.
