I currently have a roof mounted spare tire and I am aliitle annoyed by the fact that I can't get into certain parking decks in downtown Athens and also by the fact that the spare tire weighs a freaking ton to get it up on the roof. I've been looking for a swing out rear tire carrier for my 1998 5.9 ZJ but I don't have the cash to replace the whole rear bumper with one with a spare tire mount. I recently came across this hitchgate spare tire swing from Tiregate. and the hitchgate page is at: . This is a tire swing that mounts up to the 2" reciever used for towing. The hitchgate tire swing runs about $700.00 and it includes a hi-lift mount. Does anyone have any experience with the hitchgate or does anybody know of another type of tire swing that costs less than the hitchgate? Furthermore, does anyone have any other ideas about how to mount the spare tire other than inside the vehicle or on the roof? Any input would be greatly appreciated..... Thanks in advance....
