Lambo Style Rear Tire Carrier

Toyota Tire CarrierSeems most everyone these days is building a rear tire carrier for their Toyota Offroad 4x4 rig. It's a relatively simple addition to a tube bumper that can result in lots of extra storage space in or on top of your rig.

The most common method is to get a hold of a wheel spindle from a trailer supply store, weld that on to your bumped, and weld a tire mount on to the bearing carrier. This allows you to swing the tire out of the way allowing access to your tailgate and the junk you have stored in the rear of your Toyota.

A new spin on the idea is to mount the rotating spindle assembly in the vertical plane, so that the wheel doesn't spin out in a large arc (requiring nobody to be parked within 5 feet of you), but rather rotates up and off to the side.

Here's a YouTube video of it in action.
