Hello knowledgeable peoples

driving today I saw a rear wheel carrier that mounts to the towbar brace (i think that is what its called,) so no new rear bar is required. Does anyone have any experience with these, or knows of a website.
They look simple (ie cheaper than something like a Kaymar)
cheers.

try www.4wdsystems.com.au or (08) 8369 0033 in S.A. They do one similar to Kaymar for a 100 series Croozer @$550 which is a sight cheaper than $900+ for Kaymar. Fitting is extra but if you just want the bar, they quoted me $30 or so for delivery which I thought was pretty good to NSW. I've decided to put my spare in the lugggage area and put a false floor in. Takes up a lot of height but I'll see how it goes. btw, this mob do a double page ad in 4wd Monthly and are well priced all round.

Thanks steve,
they look good, but i'm pretty sure the one i saw was bolted to the Hayman towbar, so i don't think it would be vehicle specific.

haven't come across that. If you find it post it up for us mate. The main reason I'm not going for a rwc is cos I cant get the bloody thing in the garage with one on. So an easily detached one maight do the trick.

yeah that's what i figured too. Owning a duel cab ute that i use for work, it would be a PITA to keep swinging the tyre out everytime. But with this thing you7 could bolt it on only when you need it.

I actually started making one that fits behind the original spare on the GU,, works fantastic, fits the tow bar.. like most things, need some time to finish it...
