710M rear door/spare....how much weight can it hold?

Post by Derrickbwg » Sun Mar 18, 2018 2:23 pm

I am wanting to mount some items to the spare tire. I realize the door and hinges arent exactly beefy in their construction. Mule expedition is building me 2 of the braces that the sars pinz has installed. Just looking for thoughts on what folks think is possible weight wise on the spare. Maybe someone has experience loading up the spare? But ill listen to any thoughts on what might be possible.

The truck has the 34x9/16 super swamper as a spare on it so that is a significant increase already.

Pics below of the braces. Think they will help in my quest to add weight?

Got the first bit of weight via the ups guy yesterday. I took the sage advice of a member that pm'ed me and mounted it as close to the door as possible. The bugout rack is pretty nice and is (imo) a great way to keep the constant smell of fuel out of the cabin.

Im going to mount 2 maxtrax with their spare tire harness tomorrow. ImageImage

Ah - so when you said bug out rack you really meant it - I thought you just called it that :)
Thanks - cool idea

Im going to use a jeep bumper/foot mount for the hi lift and make a bracket to stand it off the body. The slope of the bumper is no problem because of the slight pivot on the base of the jack (enables it to stand straight). The bug out rack needed to be mounted that way due to the maxtrax harness and ratchet.

The door is heavy but comparing it to the 710k's withe the top door and window, it feels only slightly heavier (seat of the pants)
