    Hey TW,
    I'm selling an Offroad PreRunner-Style Tire Carrier that I made over this summer. I built this as a fun project as a beginning welder. Since my last tire-carrier build, I had a few people interested in a tire-gate style that swings open for loading the bed. :cool:

    • This replaces the tailgate and mounts using 6 of the factory holes by the taillight, so no need to drill or cut anything.
    • I only tested a 33x10.5 tire with a 15x7 4.5" backspace rim, but could fit wider tires with a longer spinner mount and any wheel will work.
    • When it swings, you have to lift it slightly to get it back into the mounts, and the hitch pins take some muscle to get in, but it's not difficult.
    • Includes all hardware, hitch pins, ORI Urethane wheel mount, and spinner mount that has red lock-on Sette bike grips.
    • Painted with Duplicolor Bed Armor Spray Bed Liner.
    • I can weld on a cb antenna/whip/light tab if interested.
    • The two gussets on the tire-gate frame are the toyota logo and a bottle opener. :cheers:
    • PM me for shipping quotes, but response may be delayed for packaging it to get a closer online estimate.
    • Payment via PayPal only.

    Can it be flipped around to have more cargo space in the bed, like the TirGate one?

    How much does it weigh?

    Thanks!

    I haven't tried to flip it outwards, but I doubt it since it's a tight and strong fit for the hinges to swing properly.

    ..and I haven't weighed it yet, but I will tonight and let you know! :D

    Weighs in right around 40 pounds before packaging. :thumbsup:

    It could be done with this one with some minor modifications, but I just want to leave it as is for now.

    I'll definitely take that into consideration if I make another one soon. :thumbsup:



    bump! :D

    bump!

    Price is OBO, so hit me with an offer if interested. :D

    The gate can be removed in under 5 mins if you need to haul anything longer than the bed, too! :thumbsup:
