It comes with M12 x 1.25 studs on it so you just need nuts and washers to fit.

Hello all, I got the carrier yesterday and I had installed it last night. BOY it is HEAVY! Almost need to use the crane to lift it onto the rolling cage!

What I had learned about it. It the carrier is NON-adjustable up or down on the roll cage due to the angle of the cage. The bracket to hold the rim is adjustable.

I went to a local ACE and got 4 M12 x 1.25 nuts and 4 M12 washers.

I'm happy! I can fit both 8gal storage bin and Yeti cooler under it with a plenty view between carrier and cooler. I need to find a spider web with 4 anchors instead using the straps. Do you have a better suggest how to tie them down?

I was thinking of bring the folding step stool and put it behind the seat. So I can be able to get the spare tire down.

I’d highly recommend the Tusk tailgate. You’ll gain a ton of bed space.

I’ll make a video of it’s contents. I’ve actually been asked a lot. Maybe tonight if my wife can wrangle the kids for a bit.

I have the Kawi trunk, but I'm toying around with the idea of going with that box and the tusk tailgate. I'd like to see how that box fits under the tusk spare tire carrier as well. I'm curious how far the lid would open.:unsure:
