I am looking for a tilting spare tyre lifter. The tyres are too heavy to lift on my own. I saw a pair fitted to the rear of a tray back 105 once. We need a pair of them as we sometimes carry two spares. We already have a steel rear bar. No tow-ball lifts please and I have been searching with Google, on and off ages.

Any links please? I can't make it myself and would prefer a good commercial version that the insurance company will recognise and cover.

Under "Options" Scroll down to Lowering Tyre Mount.

Thanks Baz

Strange site. Tried to get the spcs but it wouldn't submit the enquiry. I didn't fill out the full questionaire as the questions were irrelevant. I couldn't even select a sedan type of body.

I will call them later

Thanks

Phil,

Can recall this subject coming up here some time back, and some one suggested the drop down tyre racks that Telstra use(or used to use?)

Can't find my photo of them at the moment, nor can I remember the company that made them, but did dig this photo up off Gumtree of a ex-Telstra canopy, that has similar drop down racks.



Whether such an item can be modified to suit your twin tyre carrier would be the next question? Any way of rigging a beam(like 40-50mm alloy RHS) under your RTT, that can pivot from one tyre to the other, to support one of those lightweight pulley systems?

Will see if I can find that other photo tonight, Phil. Doing some community service today......

They're the type of things I was after. I changed the operative word to "drop" and got a few response on Google. It's amazing how "dumb" Google can be. Not always "your friend". I am just waiting for an engineer to call me back.

I just hope that the cost is within reasonable parameters!!!!

Thanks mate

I think it is the "mob" in Tamworth, company called Obieco...

Obieco

It is Obieco. We tried them last December as we wanted one for the rear of our canopy. They only make them in batches for fleet use. Occasionally they have one to suit left over but they told the chap who was making our canopy that they were very easy to make. We had a demo of one fitted to a Telstra truck, and it worked a treat. When closed, it bolted through centre of the wheel through the rear wall of the canopy, which might cause a dust issue.
Cheers

Thanks Baz & Mary. That is the company alright.

Their racks look quite light Phil, so hope you can organise something similar for the 100 series.

Bosstone (not sure of the spelling) also have a piecart body with those type of spare wheel carriers, similar to the Obieco as fitted to Telstra Nissan Patrols cab chassis and Toyota cab chassis. have had no problem with dust getting into the piecart.
