27/11/07 - Rear Wheel Carrier

Andy has kindly sent in some pictures of his rear wheel carrier as a follow on to my article on fitting the spare wheel (see: Rear Tyre Mount).

The age old problem is that larger tyres need off-settting from the door to stop them fouling the bumper and permitting the rear door to close properly. Andy has designed and built a "Swing Away" carrier that not only solves this problem but also deals with the weight issue of the wheel. In my solution the weight is carried by the rear door and based on past experience with the SJ series this will eventually lead to "door sag".

25/10/07 - History of my Jimny
