Default Re: While under your van... Need pic of Spare Tire front hanger please

@dynaco1, Yes. The van was spec'd by an upfitter with the spare tire deleted and a whole bunch of other odd changes. Then the van was dealer traded in transit to the dealer I purchased it from. I wanted a low roof crew but they don't make that any more so I started with a low roof cargo that had all factory windows installed.

So the item that is missing is the towers welded to the cross member. I could just bolt right through the frame but I need to get down ~5 inches or so for oversized tires and its going to push forward every time i hit the brakes so it should be strong.

Id just be welding up an external tire mount on the rear door, then you won't have any issue with oversized tire spare.

Plus you can fit a decent sized water tank under there, where the factory tire area is.

You can also just buy a rear tire carrier from people that make them and save a lot of headache.

Today I had to go to RB components to pick up my interior door panels. they had a van in production that also had the spare tire delete on it. This is how they handle mounting oversized spare tires. Seems simple enough.
