Cut Spare Tire mount off!

Recommended Posts

I cut the spare tire mount off today. Didn't suit my taste and it hit the cabinets in the garage area of the Toyhauler when loaded. Plus I will save the weight almost half of my spare tires weight. My spare is mounted flat in the surface of the area above the engine. Since my Trooper is one of the early ones, my surface is diamond plate not the plastic. I will take a pic tomorrow. I used a Sawsall to remove the mount/support and grinder to clean the excess off. Little glossy black and it looks like it came from the factory that way.

I cut mine off quite some time ago. It looked ok but wasn't good to have the weight that high. For now, I made a bracket that plugs into my rear hitch receiver to hold it. I'm going to change that latter and put in along side and behind the passenger.

Diamond plate? I'm jealous! I don't care for the plastic IMO it looks cheap. replacing it is one of the things on my list that I would like to get done on the T4.

Cinda, my dealer gave me the chance to trade it with a later model he had in the shop but declined. There are advantages to having the plastic. Mine is heavier than Zell.

      If my new Kawasaki Mule Pro Fxt Eps is ever released from Stop Sale Purgatory, I am immediately going to replace the stock tires with some ITP Blackwater Evolutions. Unfortunately, my tire guys supplier has gone out of buisness. I would appreciate it if some forum members could provide me with the name of a dependable/affordable online supplier. Thank you in advance!

      Hello to one and all. I am a new member in need of clarification on the topic of tire weight ratings. 
      I am one of the people waiting for the stop sale to end on the Kawasaki Mule Pro FXT EPS (among others). I have been using my wait time to search for new tires since I don't like the stock tires. I will be keeping the stock 12 inch rims.
         For the life of me I cant find any kind of tire that would be suitable as far as weight rating.
         The Mule weighs 1911 lbs. If I add 6 men at 200 lbs. per man and put a 200 lb. deer in the bed that brings me to a total of 3311 lbs. total weight. That means I need a tire with a weight rating of at least 827.75 lbs. I don't know that a UTV tire like that even exists.
         My question is, where is my thinking wrong? Everyone I know is running under rated tires if my thinking is correct on how to figure this. I would think the weight and rating should work together or am I making a mountain out of a molehill?
