Finally got the tire off the roof. There are lots of pluses to not having it up there.
New carrier was built and I mounted it off my Allpro rear bumper. Its solid.

This is a cool part of the carrier. I had an old hub lying around and used it to create the place for the tire to mount to. This also gave me a spot for spare bearings (greased and ready to go) and a spare hub.

Ya, dual tanks in the truck. My special mod. Factory tank through the front filler and rear is to the 20 gal fuel cell in the back.
work excellent and gives me lots of range.
