That's what I wanna do. Build a hitch carrier that will Carry a jack and stuff but will have a gate that will hold a tire and if you needed to get in the bed and open the tail gate it would swing open and be out of the way. And lock in to place when it's shut. It can be done. I wanted to make one that held a gas can too.

They are cool. But for the money not practical. You can build one to your liking for 3/4 less then the cost of those.
