    Exactly. It's cool, and functional, but the more I think about it I really don't need it. I'm finding myself wheeling way more than camping (can't even tell you the last time I camped, probably been 6 months). So it makes sense in my mind to change it up a little bit and make it more wheeling friendly. Not like a swingout isn't, but it'd be nice to shed some weight.

    I think you should keep it. The swingout chili cookouts have been awesome. Ditch the fuel can and go with a rotopax or some type of recovery gear box. Also, the swingout keeps other wheeling buddies from running into your tailgate. Plus, it just looks cool. Haha

    I’ve pretty much made up my mind but I’m gonna sleep on it. I would build a tire holder like you designed, and bolt it in the bed. It’d be rock solid.

    I hope it doesn't sling off onto the drum/brake pads.
    I know this sounds paranoid but that's some slippery, nasty, shit and it taste bad too.

    If it did I probably wouldn’t even notice. Before I had metal on metal in there so literally anything is an upgrade.

    Right after I posted that I changed my mind. I’ll have to check, but I believe could just cut up my swingout and salvage the part that holds the spare. Weld it to a 1/4” thick, 6” square and bolt that to the bed with some 1/2” hardware. Would be easy and free.

    OK. I'll call the lawyers and tell them to hold off on litigation.

    I forgot the swingout is also a theft deterrent. It makes it much more difficult to get access to the bed.

    This is true, with the padlock on there it’s oretty darn secure. I’ll just have to remember to lock the cap window. Maybe rig something up to where I can padlock the tailgate from the inside, if I need it a little more secure
