Want to Weld-It-Yourself?

Following in the footsteps of our Universal Over-The-Bed Rack, we've designed  The New Hot Metal Fab's Universal Tire Carrier Bed Rack to have the same width adjustability. With that in mind, this rack will fit anything from a Tacoma to a Silverado, from a Ranger to a Titan and beyond.

Different tire sizes and backspacing are also accommodated using a two piece tire carrier spindle. No ratchet straps required, just bolt your tire down to the multi-lug pattern spindle. Want to save a bit of $$$? We offer these with ratchet strap tie down points instead of the multi-lug spindle to bolt your spare to!

MOLLE Panel Rack is STANDARD: The tubular style rack is an additional 200$ due to complexity in fixturing and configuration. If you choose to Weld-It-Yourself, the tubular style is not additional. Please contact us if you want this option.

Much like our other Universal Racks, The Universal Tire Carrier Bed Rack also features our universal pinch brackets, our Tacoma Utility Track brackets, or our Nissan Bed Track Brackets. No drilling required.

You will receive:

  • Two bedrack halves
  • Four connecting tubes
  • A handful of 3/8” hardware to bolt the tire carrier plates on
  • The brackets you’ve selected for your vehicle with matching hardware

  • Your choice in Rack Style and spare wheel/tire securing

We will also provision the tire carrier plate with M14x1.5 wheel studs and standard lug nuts if you have chosen this option; if your spare requires specialty lugnuts, you will need to obtain these.

If you have selected the ratchet strap tie down tabs, please note ratchet straps are NOT INCLUDED.

This product is built-to-order, please allow 4-6 weeks for fabrication and shipment. Item ships via regular UPS Ground.

IF YOU CHOOSE TO WELD-IT-YOURSELF: Please note, this is an intermediate level WIY setup. We use a relatively intricate fixture to ensure these are put together well. Above average fabrication tools and skill levels required. We do NOT have instructions for you at this time. You will receive pre-cut and pre-bent tubes. Notching, fitting and welding is entirely up to you. We suggest fully mocking up and assembling all components to the rack, before any welding to ensure accuracy.

WIY kits are on a 2-3 week lead time.

Q: How do I install my  Universal Tire Carrier Bed Rack ?

A: Since there are four slip fit tube connectors, assembling the rack can be mildly difficult. Get two ratchet straps setup to help pull the rack halves evenly together until the rack fits on your vehicle! Then, bolt the rack to your vehicle using the provided attachment brackets. Once this is all done, connect the long center plate together. To measure the height of the tire spindle, place a straight edge across the BACK/INSIDE of your tire. Measure from that straight edge to the wheel mounting surface. Then, slide the spindle height to that measurement. You may subtract 1/16”-⅛” if you like so that the tire squishes down onto the rack for an extra secure fit.

If using ratchet straps, disregard the steps for measuring for tire spindle, and simple strap your tire down in an X-pattern!
