Available as flat or angled. The simple flat mount allows you to position a tire anywhere in the bed of your truck. You can mount the base plate directly in your bed for a permanent mount; or spend a little extra time placing the mounting plate underneath your bed; allowing you to remove your spare tire without anyone knowing it was ever there. The angled carrier is constructed using 1 1/4 in. steel tubing and MIG welded at the joints for long lasting strength and durability. The angled spare tire mount allows you to securely carry a full size spare tire up to 35 in. tall in the bed of your truck. Installation only required drilling four holes to secure one of the cleanest working sparetire carriers available.
