This Masai Large-Extra and Heavy-Duty Defender Spare Wheel Carrier fixes to the chassis to minimise the strain on the door hinges.

Strengthening Kit (Pre 2002 Rear Doors ONLY)

(see optional extra product below)

If you have Pre 2002 Land Rover we would recommend you purchase the Strengthening Kit as an optional extra as the Pre 2002 Land Rover rear doors are "single skin" meaning they have very little strength to carry a spare wheel on them along with our carrier. Our strengthening kit bolts to the inside of the door to add needed strength to the door to avoid

Fitting to Series 3 Models

  1. You will need to drill just one hole in the rear crossmember for the bottom hinge of the SWC. (See last photo in thumbnails for reference)
  2. A longer bolt will be needed for this hole created.
  3. Then shim the the lower hinge with 2 Grade 8 washers to fill the gap between the hinge and the cross member.
  4. PLEASE NOTE: Do not purchase the optional strengthening kit if you have series 3, it will not fit.

Our Heavy-duty Spare Wheel Carrier can be fitted to vehicles with oversized wheels:
