I want to put my spare tire on the roll bar.

Not sure which is the best way to attach metal to the roll bar.

Weld or large bolts??

Do you have any pictures - that helps me understand.

i like how people substitute heat for correct technique. :confused0006: you obviously are completely ignorant about welding. if you suck a dick at welding, which you probably do, turning the heat up isnt gonna make the weld any better. setting the machine up right for mateial thickness, using the right joint design and prep, and using the correct technique will make the weld better. i bet vertical down is your favorite mig position too.:D

spare tire mounted like that may look cool on a baja truck. but is not very functional in a daily driver/ 4x4 in the stuff we wheel in BC.

1) no rear visiablity. Next time you drive the truck, try driving it without using the rear view mirror
2) raises your center of gravity
3)depending on the quality of roll bar/ light bar you have, it may not be able to take the abuse its going to incure with the tire mounted to it.

Thats just my opinion. If you decide to do it, hope it works out for ya.
