This is the first swing away tire solution that doesn't appear to harm departure angles that much which is really nice. Curious though, if you're running 33" tires why not just use the stock location? Dealing with a swing out is a pain.

Couple of reasons. One, I like the rear swing out tire carrier look. It gives aggressive offloading vehicles look.
Second, when I went off-roading and when I was stuck on the sand, my tire was low on air so I had to change the tire. It was near impossible to take out the spare tire from the bottom of the vehicle. The rear tire carrier makes it so much easier to replace the tire.
The tire carrier about was about $600, Powder coating and welding was $100, TRD RIM was $200 and KO2 Tire was $200. I think it was worth the money for me. =)

I'll be interested with what you come up with. The backup camera is vital when living in the city. Parking in downtown is a Biaatch.

Received my Detours Offroad Swing-Away tire carrier. Did a quick mock installation for visuals. I agree with that there a few things that should have been re-designed better, especially how the stud bolts to mount your tire are loose. Try having to dismount/mount your 100lb wheel setup with those loose stud bolts on the trail. I'm going to tack weld the stud bolts and the tilted wheel mount before it goes to powder coating. Overall the build quality of it is good and I'm happy with it.
@youngwas

How did you tighten up wedge-lock? I'd need a find a really long 3/8" allen head to get it.










If you are running the Overland Equipped Rotopax ladder brackets this tire carrier will not work with the 4g Rotopax mounted.

I bought the wrench extension for the Allen key. It was only $6 at Home Depot. I mentioned it in the video and showed the extended Allen wrench setup.

I just messaged him on FB and he replied back a couple of days later. Once he replied all responses to my questions were answered quickly. I haven't decided between this or the knuckle bone but I will be buying it from this guy.

Thanks! I deleted messenger because of hacking. Knuckle bone looks good to me.

Test fitting mine. Going to weld a hi lift carrier onto the swingout. Should sit almost exactly how it looks in the pics. Will also have to remove my maxtrax from my ladder.

So far, the only thing that bothers me a little is the fact that the swingout arms look a little slanted (not parallel to the ground) due to the fact that they were welded at a slight angle.

Took 10 weeks for me to get it.

Do you have any updated or finished photos of how you mounted the hi lift?

I am interested in your youtube channel as most of the content is relevant to my interests, and you seem to make good videos.

But why is the audio always so damn quite? Its like you are whispering. And sometimes you use captions so i think you realize its an issue.

Invest in a better camera or something.

Yeah, basically what I did was buy a hi lift mount made for a Jeep JK (something like this), stripped the paint, then welded it to the swingout arm. It does wobble a little bit because the metal the mount is made of is a little thin, but I've taken it off road a few times already and havent had any issues. I'll probably fix it down the road by welding on some kind of stabilizing bar.

Also, should note that, if you do this, the hatch barelyyyy clears the hi lift when you open it. You'll have to do a lot of measurements and testing to make sure you're putting the hi lift in the right place on the swingout arm otherwise you might not be able to open your hatch.

Awesome thanks for the info, it looks great.
Those access panels are sweet.
