from Italy. Is it possible to assemble behind the hatchback a spare tyre carrier on a 2000 4wd 4 doors blazer?

anything is possible....have a search around this topic has been discussed a few times, but i dont recall anyone actually going through with due to the extra bracing needed to support the carrier.

Rcars2 has the carrier from a 2dr on the back of his 4dr. I'm not sure if he added anything inside the body panels to help support the weight or not though.

Well since I have a tire carrier I guess I can give a little bit more information

I recently took off the tire carrier and strike plate to repaint them and behind them, guess what, steel anchors, they look to be about 1/4" thick (kinda hard to tell). It's definitely not going to be easy to weld them one b/c it's going to be hard to get behind the panels. Another thing to consider is the cost of everything, the bolts the hold the tire carrier are about $8 each.

Good luck, if you still decide to do it make sure to post pictures
