Hornet Outdoors Receiver Hitch Spare Tire Mounts are the solution for carrying a spare tire for your ATV or UTV without taking up any valuable rack or bed space.
The U-4047S adds the convenience of the Hornet Outdoors U-4054 Scorpion Swing-Away Hitch Joint to our U-4047 Receiver Hitch Spare Tire Mount . Simply pull the Scorpion Swing-Away Hitch Joint's standard 5/8" hitch pin and the entire Spare Tire Mounting Post pivots away from the bed of your UTV so you can access the tailgate.
Unlike trucks and SUVs, ATV and UTV receiver hitches are commonly located beneath the vehicle. The unique angled lower section of our Receiver Hitch Spare Tire Mount extends the receiver hitch beyond the rear of the vehicle and provides plenty of ground clearance in rough terrain.
Powder coated flat black for a durable, corrosion-resistant finish.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The U-4047S provides 13-3/4" horizontal clearance between the vehicle's receiver hitch pin hole and the mount post. Please measure your vehicle to insure this is sufficient to clear the rear of the vehicle and consult the image with detailed dimensions if necessary.

A third 5/8" hitch pin is required to attach the Spare Tire Mount to your vehicle and can be purchased at a discounted price as an optional add-on.
The included U-4045 Hitch Stabilizer can optionally be installed to eliminate wobble between the lower section and the mount post but prevents toolless removal and reinstallation of the mount post. A second Stabilizer to eliminate play between the lower section and the vehicle receiver hitch can be purchased at a discounted price as an optional add-on. Additional details on the Hornet Outdoors U-4045 Hitch Stabilizer can be found [here].
The included 3/8" fasteners will accommodate most wheels, but some wheels may require the separate purchase of longer bolts.

A U-4052 Piggyback makes a nice addition if you also want to pull a trailer behind your ATV or UTV and still have the U-4047S carrying your spare.
