I made a spare tire mount for my jeep from an old spindle and hub. I dont use my tailgate so I made it a non hinging type. 4 bolts and it can be removed if needed. I put it on the left side so its hidden from my view when looking over my should during reverse maneuvers. I will add a photo with the wheel mounted once I put a tire on the rim.

Nice work 👍 I hope when the tire is mounted it doesn’t cover up the tail lite

Thanks guys. I test fitted everything before assembly to ensure the tail light and license plate is not obstructed. Running stock size tires makes that easy.

Cool design!

My son and I used a similar concept on his '84 CJ-7   . . .  (his CJ still has the weak stock 5-bolt hubs/lockouts in front axle).

His spare tire is too wide for the lug bracket on the swing-away tire carrier,   so we replaced it with a spare hub assembly.    Like yours,   it serves dual purpose,  to hold spare to carrier,  and consists of spare parts for front axle.

What tires & size? I like the main tube bend on the carrier. Very cool.
