Slee-Carrier ™ swing out tire carrier
As we all know the stock location of the spare tire and the US Spec 2″ receiver leaves a lot to be desired when going off-road. The Slee-Carrier addresses both these concerns in a well executed swing out carried that pivots on dual tapered bearings.
The Slee-Carrier accepts standard size tires and comes with additional backup light mount tab and antenna bracket.
