Hi guys just to introduce myself and my WJ i have been building, tinking or as the handbrake says fart arsing on for the last few months. Its a 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4.7 V8 Overland as in the attached pictures but not the latest ones they will come. It has a 4" lift done with steel bumpers front and back, winch and bar lights. It also has a LPG conversion and i am about to build a swing out rear spare wheel carrier.

This is my second one i am building, lets say the first was a trial where i learnt what works and what not.

 

Till later :coolphotos:

Very nice- Just picked up a limited and its giving me ideas already!

 

Need to find a garage that has LPG at the moment so i can try the fitted system.

 

Also am curious how the steering feels- I reckon that it shouldnt be as hard as it is to turn in mine - Its not bad but i do need two hands at times to park it etc.  I presume that the pump is on its way out.

Hi yes probably the rack but don't rule the pump out,if its noisy would indicate pending failure.

There is an app called filllpg which will show you where to find one.

Great pictures, I too want to construct a swing out spare for my Grand Cherokee as the gas tank takes up a lot of boot space. I have build towbars in the past, so I guess it's a similar job. Are there any off-the-shelf bits that can be used, bearing in mind I have a small budget?

Sorry for the late reply here are some pics of mine.

 

The red plastic plate is the base for the high lift jack.

Great setup, of course you have a metal bumper, a great starting place for mods!

Sure you need a starting point to add stuff unless you create a square tube off the tow ball plate and just add a tube at the right height coming out will a round disc plate to bolt the wheel on this will work. You can buy 200mm x 5mm round plates on ebay where i bought mine.

 

I have made these before as used to sell them for £155
