Look at the excursion in the link. It has a 5 lug wheel for the spare.

The mounting head that mounts the tire interchange with all our racks. We were using the spare off one of our rigs at the shop for mock-up and it had a 5 on 5.5 pattern. Good catch.

Loving your bumpers/tireracks. I sent an email off you site for a quote.
Do you do any front winch bumpers ?

Im interested in putting a carrier on mine because I cant have the 37" tire inside. Do you make any that will keep my stock bumper?

Hi Mike! Sadly I had to sell this truck, but it went to a good home. Here is another pic of the rack Mike makes, and the sweet '86 F350 I had the pleasure of owning for a short time.

Mike really is a stand-up guy.

I have been patiently waiting for about 3 wks for a bumper and carriers to be built for my X from Cross Ent. Cost for the setup as seen in the photo is in the $1300-1400 range. (i have theexactquote to my desk at work) plus shipping. These are built to order, so be prepared to wait. The X in the pics is the owners Truck btw.

I'll post pics when I get my hands on one. Brian

And their system requires a new bumper, and the stock reciever hitch works with it. Also includes reverse sensor holes if desired.

so $1300 and that does or does not include the bumper? I assumed it did but then you said it requires a new bumper which sounds like its not included.

Thats for all 3, bumper/jerry can holer/ tire rack.

One of the previous posts asked if you couldget a rack without a bumper, with the cross ent setup the anwser is no. Sorry for the confusion.

Thats really pretty cheap compared to what some others charge... The ex has such a simple rear bumper shape that I don't think it'd be too hard to make one yourself if you were motivated. I imagine these bumpers have a healthy profit margin on them.

I've got a rack without the bumper. No doubt they can be made with 2 swings if needed. Just uses up your hitch.
