Does anyone know where to buy a kit to reverse the spare tire on the rear? My tire cover has come in contact with a few objects when reversing over the years and paying to have it painted etc is quite costly. I would just rather have the rim showing in rear instead...would look nicer anyway.

If there's not kit to purchase, any ideas on how to flip it?

Thanks!

Hello I just did this today, All I did was remove the spare tire carrier and had the 3 hollow tube washers that cover the 3 bolts that mount the carrier to the rear door fabricated 4 and 1/4 inches longer. then I bought 3 bolts longer by the same length, mounted the carrier back on. This allowed me to reverse the the spare tire and that was it! My next project is to cut off about 1 and 1/2 inch from the guide tube of the carrier so i can mount a centercap on the spare tire.
