The Buckstop Rear Tire Carrier is a Heavy-Duty Duty Bumper derived from Reunel concepts with substantial Frame Mount attachment using 3/8" thick mounting brackets. There is more to a tire carrier bumper than meets the eye - weight and lever arm length apply a great amount of torque to the rear bumper. There are also moving parts that need to lock in place and not rattle apart, but need to be user friendly in operation. Buckstop tire carrier bumpers include anti-rotational supports that extend under the frame rails to provide a geometrically rigid structure. The latching slam-shut latch mechanism allows no-hand operation to close and includes a fully adjustable foot for smooth shutting and no-rattle tuning.
