Hi all....did a trip with a friend recently and he had a rack that fitted over the spare wheel which was on his tailgate. At the bottom of the rack was a shelf that folded up when not in use and folded down to put things on, he would put fire wood across this shelf and strap it on.
Trying to find where to buy one of these racks, I have tried googling it but find it had to describe it in words, can anybody help.

Peter can't help you as such but I've seen one of those on the back of a Jeep so possibly available through them?

Remember simular to what you are wanting was available as a hook on step to access your roof rack. Folded flat & hooked over a rear tyre. Could also be used as a seat. Can't for the life of me remember who was selling them but it was more than one place. Bill

Hi Peter,

I was actually looking at a product from a potential supplier today which was a shelf for a spare wheel, and also had a step on the side allowing you to access the roof. Am obtaining a sample, and should hopefully have this product available in the ExplorOz Shop soon.

The step you have pictured above used to be sold at most auto stores like SuperCheap and Autobarn etc....not sure if they still sell them there now or not though.

Allan,
I bought one of those from Autobarn in Rockhampton for my cruiser ute.
It is the best thing I have ever invested in.
Being a vertically challenged as I am, I can now reach stuff further than a foot from the side.
The tread is a little different but the same principal.
Will handle 150kg payload and feels very secure to stand on.

Cheers

Pretty sure you're referring to a gizmo that Pat Callinan advertised on his site: MR4X4.com.au recently. I recall seeing the thing that you mention. It also sounds exactly like what Michelle is talking about.

I wouldn't like to add it onto the top of a standard spare tyre mounted on a back door (such as Patrol), but I think it would be suited to a tyre that is mounted on a stronger, after-market wheel carrier such as a a Kaymar etc.

Autocraft spare wheel shelf
Great for firewood, chainsaw or mounting a recovery gear box.

And also good for breaking your spare tyre mountings on rough roads.

This might suit - although I reckon it is designed as a table to prepare meals on/cook on/etc. It has a drop down function from the upright transit position.
Perhaps would hold more firewood than the Supercrap style strap-on assembly?
