    TMR (DIY) Tire Carrier

    This is the first Do It Yourself Tire carrier Tim and Mike have put out, And they have been great to work with, Everything fit perfect and went together awsome, And it looks amazing.

    This is all of it layed out on the bench


    all tacked and ready to weld the main frame,


    tacked the brackets to the the jeep


    welded and painted, Hard to tell but the machine work and attention to detail is amazing


    welded the studs in the tire plate


    welded it on to the main frame so the tire sits about an inch from the steel

    bent up the stinger today and got it welded in place



    Put a bar in the middle area to weld the clamp to and bolt the lic plate, and TMR logo


    All painted and ready to go on the for the last time (hopefully) My 5th rim should be ready
    tomorrow and I already have the 5th tire.



    I will get one more pic when it's on the jeep and the tire is on

    Check out the link at the bottom of the post, TMR Customs are a great company to deal with, and they are CANADIAN.

    ^^

    Ya, what he said. How much was it? and is it completely custom or is it a kit TMR Sells? I checked out the website and looks really neat (like a company I'd like to setup).

    Not sure how much I got a bunch of stuff all at the same time, I'm pretty sure that it can be built to fit any bumper by just cutting the bottom tube shorter if you you need to.

    That looks real good....However, I have a question:
    Maybe as an XJ driver I don't understand but what's the "stinger" for on the back?
    Thanks

    that's loooks awesome!

    and TMR, amazing idea. you're like the ikea of aftermarket parts - but without the hot girls at the store or the crappy product... do you have hot girls at the shop?

    i'm a little dense, what's the carrier attached to?

    as for the stinger, i can actually see that being handy, especially with the hard top on. ever bump the spare into anything - pretty easy to ruin the tailgate or bust out the glass with pretty innocent looking knocks.

    again, impressive all around.
    one of these days...

    swb jeeps have a tendency to have the front wheels lift up while doing steep climbs (moreso than xj's and other long wheelbase vehicles).

    I saw a rear stinger save alot of tub when Doug rolled his fibreglass CJ on the last climb of Forest mountain at camp NL.

    The truck balanced on the rear stinger and then on to the cage....saving the fibreglass tub. if you don't have a stinger, the tub is the base for the roll until the cage meets the ground.
