Just wondering is it worth while getting a wheel carrier attached to my rear bar when i it or just leave the wheel attached to the barn door? Im a bit woried about the door sag, cracking and letting in dust. Does anyone have an opinion?

Rear door sag already !

We have a 2001 Patrol, and she has been in a lot of spots.
She has no rear door sag, and the tinyest of cracks happening.
Don't worry about it


Then if you must have a wheel carrier, then get one.

Cheers

Had Patrols since 2000, no problem with door sag. I also carried a 25 litre water jerry on the wheel for 4 years with no problem. Only put the rear bar on because I wanted Dual wheel holder.

No real issue Michaeljp

There were a few earlier ones that had an issue - but I believe most were tracked down to be because of fitting heavier wheels or failing to keep them adjusted right so that they could move and knock.

We have 3 GU's and none have that issue , sealing was improved also years ago.
