Re: Trojan Tire Carrier and Rear Bumper Storage Box

Of course, but it will look awkward (IMHO).

Re: Trojan Tire Carrier and Rear Bumper Storage Box

What's wrong with using the welded SS ladders as mounting points for the tyres and jerricans etc? One on each side should give you a lot of choices and I figure if they can handle the weight of the average person they should hold a 75 lb tyre or a 40 lb gas can.

Re: Trojan Tire Carrier and Rear Bumper Storage Box

Big difference between a preson (even a 250lb one ) climbing up a ladder and hanging a load off of it and driving down the road. A average 265-16 weighs in at around 75lbs. and while I can easily pick up 75lbs if I have to carry it around all day its a different story. Then when you start talking about my 37" tires/wheels....

I think it's more of a dynamic load, try to catch that 75lb tire and it's a lot harder than picking it up. If the load isn't tight on anything it will not ride as well.

There is a crush factor, and wear and tear on the door hinges- not wholly different from the door mounted spare, which I know from experience is a bad thing to bump into anything with.

But you can bolt a Jerry can holder directly to the door if you want- I don't see why the ladder would be that much different. Even the Aluminess have their failure points, or at least there was a reason they went to 3 hinges instead of 2, and the hinge bolts chew up the aluminum.

I say hang stuff from the ladder- you could even make a storage solution from the ladder style mounts, it's all the same, just another method of attaching stuff to your door.
