    Cargo Carrier for All Jeeps

    I had been complaining for some time about the lack of storage in my jeep, so my wife was nice enough to get this cargo carrier as a Christmas present for me.

    Overall, I like it alot. It holds quite a bit of weight, and is large enough to hold any thing I can throw onto it (holds 500 lbs)

    One downside is that it is large and heavy, so storage is a problem. Also, since I have a 31" spare tire, the tailgate won't open with this carrier on (this is a problem with my oversize spare, not the carrier).

    Erin (my better half) purchased it from Quadratec (link here Hidden Hitch Class III Basket Carrier - Quadratec ). The shipping was speedy, but the packaging was very poor (you can see from the photos).

    Price was $159 plus shipping.

    Here is the quadratec description:

    I've got something similar, Terry, and yes, they are great for external storage. We go back to the mountains every once in a while and haul our two dogs with us. The rack comes in handy but, like you say, when loaded it makes the "tailgate" pretty much useless. Mine's not quite as big, but got it on a "Christmas Sale" at walmart a couple years ago - $25 out the door (couldn't pass it up). You might want to look into the various roof racks - a bit pricey but well worth it! You would not believe the stuff you can put up there!!

    Terry, grab three lug nuts from the parts store and you can easily modify the stock tire carrier to raise the spare slightly. Problem solved.

    I ended up buying a teraflex spare tire spacer. I just tell the wife "it's for the reviews section of the website... I have to have it"
