Default Swingout tire carrier

I just finished putting the finishing touches on my swing out tire carrier. Lots of time and labor into it but I think it came out pretty sweet. I finished it off with a couple coats of Duplicolor truck bed coating.

They do use the spindle and carrier from wheels! Pretty easy to do but I already had the spindle system. Check this link out!! http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=101332
