This is what I made. I relocated the winch away from the tire for ease of cranking. I made a plate with a sort of pulley and two 1/2" threaded rods to hold the tire, which go through two lug holes in the rim.

Thanks, that looks great. What is the length of the bolts?

I'm not all that familiar with 725's, but my M43 was stout enough that a carrier could be mounted to the rear next to the door hinges. It would have to made full-width to latch on the other side of the truck, but I think it would work.

Here is a link to a YouTube video of a custom tire carrier that I think will work for my
M725. Just mount it to the rear door frame.

Default Rear mounted spare tire

If you click on my user name you can make your way to my photo album. I have several photos of my rear mounted heavy duty rear mounted spare tire. And, I added a narration to who welded it for me.

Default HUMMER spare tire carrier

wantapinz2,

I like that design over my spare tire carrier. I don't like that I can't open my rear door from the inside to get out in an emergency. I also like the winch design, but I think my HUMMER tires are too big to fit in the original location.

There is a military HUMMER rear bumper tire carrier that also "spread-rods" down to lift the tire up into position, but they are hard to find. Here is a photo I found: http://www.armyproperty.com/Equipmen...ries/MASTC.htm

Good luck in your search,
