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.

      Hi All,
      Have a stock 2017 Stampede 4 door XTR.  Looking for a spare tire, such as a front stock setup.  Quoted from the dealer at $366.00.  For a thousand bucks I can get a whole after market setup of 4 and use my original front for a spare.   My stockies are 27x9r14 and 27x11r14's.  I was thinking of going to 29's.  Does anyone know if they will fit with no rub?  All the dealers don't know.  If anyone has an extra front wheel/tire they want to get rid of ?

      i have a Challenger 700 2017 bought new.  I would say we have around 50 - 60 hours on it.  It sits on my property in the mountains most of the  time.  Recently it began to die after about 15 minutes of idle/running.  It blew the fuse "F5" which I have been unable to figure out why.  I have replaced multiple electronic components with the same result, including the fuse box.  I contacted Cub, the service centers are very few and far between in Colorado so after 2 weeks in the shop, the tech could not isolate the problem.   Any IDEAS out there.
