Looks like you should be jumping hills lol.

Your spare will now double as a bumper. Ive never really seen one on the tailgate like that. Ive always seen them in the bed.

Does it affect your visibility any?

I would ditch the stock wheel and put it on a matching rim ASAP. That would help.

I'll be honest, I don't really like it but I don't hate it either.

Can you take a pic with the tire off.

Im not familiar with the Bronco 2 spare tire holders. Does it swing? Otherwise, how do you open your tailgate?

i'm sure if you mounted it high enough and relocated the handle inside, you'd be able to leave the tire on too.

Do you have any pictures from the side? I kinda like it and interested in everything you had to do to complete it.

A mount from a YJ might work. Probably still need some kind of reinforcement.

Not a fan. Someone posted a link for a really bad *** tailgate/tire holder not too long ago. I think the site was called truckcandy.com?
