Simply pull the Scorpion Swing-Away Hitch Joint's 5/8" hitch bolt and the entire Spare Tire Mounting Post pivots away from your vehicle for tailgate or rear door access.
The perfect spare tire mount for a Truck or RV where you need easy access to the tailgate. Features a full round wheel mount that can accommodate almost any size wheel and bolt pattern.
This Spare Tire Mount is proudly made in the USA with American steel and is compatible with any standard 2" receiver hitch.
Powder coated flat black for a durable, corrosion-resistant finish.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The U-4100-S2 is heavy duty which also makes it heavy! Full .187" wall on all 2" Tubing and .230" Wall on the female sections make this until suitable for auto/truck use only. The ATV UTV Version can be found here.
