Default spare tire mount rear attaching pic

ok, can someone post a pic on how the rear part of the tire carrier attaches to the frame? is there a bolt? or a catch? I do not have a hole in my frame where a bolt would attach? any help would be appreciated

Duane

On my bumper,below and right of where some idiot used a torch to rid of the pintle hook is a bolt hanging. That is where the tire carrier rests. The other end is the bracket just above and to the left of the pumpkin. Hope this helps...Ken

No, but we do have the same barber ; p

This was the 1st time I drove the truck back in November '09. I went around the block to a shop for a complete lubrication. The only changes since then noticable in the pic is a new exhaust system and tires. How do I fix that darn bumper/pintle? Guess I need an artist with a cutting torch and a welder.

Find a scrap frame with a good rear crossmember and replace yours with donor trucks.

So the carrier runs on an angle to the right side the pintle, I was thinking it ran straight back, I am assuming you need to tighten and loosen the nut to remove the hanger.

I will look for the hole in the frame when I get home.

Thanks

Duane

I think I posted those once...lets see...

Well...I dont see the specs off hand anymore...but I do have the pic of the bolt:



Maybe someone else can measure for you...


I found a thread that has pics of an installed carrier...not the best but it might help...and this is with an oversize tire and the stock carrier is modified a little but it does how the basic idea.
