    I saw this and was wondering if I could get feedback from anyone about it. I am looking to carry a spare tire and the stock location is not capable of this. I am also not able to put in the bed of the truck so I was looking in to this solution. Is this the best version or are there others?

    $700 :eek:

    At that price you could almost get a high clearance rear bumper w/ tire carrier.
    Check out CBI-
    http://www.cbioffroadfab.com

    They have a fold down hitch carrier for $350 as well.

    I agree. I was thinking closer to 300$$. Do any members on here have one? How do they Like it?

    I haven't seen anyone with it, but if CBI puts it out then it's pretty much guaranteed that its well made. They have one of the best reps out there.
