The Poison Spyder Rear Stinger Tire Carrier is the ultimate rear bumper for hard core rock crawling. Like many Poison Spyder original designs, the Rear Stinger concept has been copied by many manufacturers, but none come close to the quality, function, performance and awesome appearance of original. Built for light weight, high clearance, ease of use and a measure of rear-flop protection, the Poison Spyder Rear Stinger is designed for those who spend most of their time in the rocks and need a tire carrier that meets the challenge.
The Rear Stinger is basically a fold-down spare tire carrier. By pulling the two upper pins, the tire carrier can swing down, making loading and unloading of ehuge off-road tires easier. Simply roll the tire up into the carrier, secure it with the provided 3-Way Spare Tire Strap, then swing the carrier back up and pin it in place. The main components are fabricated from NC-bent DOM tubing and CNC laser-cut plate steel.
This part number is for the "DIY" Rear Stinger Tire Carrier without the Lower Mount Plate. This would be useful for those who would like to use the Poison Spyder Rear Stinger with their existing bumper, or for adapting it for use on Jeep models and other 4X4's for which we do not yet make a model-specific kit. Note that he kit does NOT provide mounting tabs to attach the Stinger to your bumper, so you will need to fabricate or source these tabs separately. Note that the upper attachment arms are located at the correct width and height for mounting to a TJ without a body lift. If you are using this kit with other vehicles you may wish to have us ship the kit with the arms un-welded, so that you may weld them in at your custom width/height during installation. If you would like the arms un-welded, please make a note of it in the comments section when ordering.
The Tire Carrier includes an integrated skid plate with laser cut lightning holes and Spyder logo. It also has an integrated license plate mount located in the center of the carrier. Tabs for the lower straps and a loop for the upper strap provide a secure mount for the 3-Way Spare Tire Strap.
The Upper Corner Mounts are designed to work with or without Poison Spyder Crusher Corners™ for TJ, LJ, YJ and CJ. (we recommend using them with Crusher Corners™). They mount using the bolt locations already in place for your Crusher Corners™. The left side Upper Corner Mount includes a convenient CB antenna mount. The Tire Carrier attaches to the Upper Corner Mounts using urethane bushings and easy-to-remove hitch pins.
The Poison Spyder 3-Way Spare Tire Strap securely holds the spare tire in place during the most rigorous four-wheeling. The use of a strap allows virtually infinite adjustability for any size tire, while allowing quick, easy access to the spare tire without having to use any extra tools. All of these reasons are why similar straps are routinely used for spare tire hold-down duty in off-road racing. Heavy duty ratchet lets you easily adjust, tighten and release tension. Made of high quality nylon webbing with an embroidered Poison Spyder tag.
Will this tire carrier hold a 37" x 12.5" tire and/or a 38" x 15.5" tire
Asked by Allen from Harlingen, Tx on
Allen, the Poison Spyder Customs DIY Rear Stinger in Bare Steel will hold up to a 40" tire which are normally 13.50" wide. The 37x12.50 will fit with no issues, but the 38x15.50 may be a little tight. I hope this helps!
