    Now that everyone has their tape measures out! Can someone please measure up their spare tire carrier so the rest of us can fabricate one for our Growler. Thanks in advance - Paul

            Nice. 😎 Can you add the length of the receiver stub and location of the pin hole? 🙏
            [EDIT] Never mind - I didn't see your other attached photos, and I can guess from there. Can you get an estimate of the round plate thickness?

                Looks great! Have you driven one with the tire carrier installed? How is it?

            • #11

                If it helps, below is an image in the Mojave desert of the driver's perspective with a front-mount spare installed. A front view is my member avatar. Mine was delivered with it installed, and they used a 5/8" bolt with washers and nylock nut to secure it with unknown torque.

                Unlike videos I have seen of spares retained by a hitch pin, this one does not rock or bounce from play in the coupling. I have not removed it to see if the connection was compressed by the bolt or if shims or wedges were used. I have not tried the rear receiver yet.

                  Mine used to rock so I ran a couple of weld beads down the length that goes into the receiver.....Rocks no more

                  I imagine that works. 😄 My 2nd Itvee had hitch wobble, and I tried shims and wedges but they failed. I bought some hitch clamps. I found there are many styles of anti-rattle clamps and pins to choose from, although I've heard some simply bolt-on an exhaust clamp to firm them up. Not using them before, I bought these, but I'm open to other suggestions:
