    I saw that Tiregate makes a verticle series tire carrier in comparison to their more popular prerunner tiregate.

    Is anyone running this on a Tacoma?

    I like it better than the prerunner one because it looks like it allows for more bed space (no matter which way the PR series is flipped) and will provide a nice cushion for backing into stuff :D

    What do you guys think of it?

    Are there any other verticle carriers similar to this?

    Thanks.

    Bump for this thread - I think that tailgate is a nice option for carrying a large spare and still having bed space.
