Inside spare tire carrier

Found a 73 for sale for parts. There was a picture of the inside spare tire carrier that looks an awful lot like the 69 to 72. Does anyone happen to know if that spare tire carrier fit more than the first gen Blazers. Picture attached.

Re: Inside spare tire carrier

I personally own both carriers. They're slightly different but once a tire is bolted on you really can't tell the difference.

Re: Inside spare tire carrier

The picture of the one you posted is a 69-72 style. In the picture, the tire hold down bolt is in backwards and the smaller bolt is for holding the jack. Here's what 73-74 style looks like...

Re: Inside spare tire carrier

When I got my Jimmy I found the original spare with 70s rubber on it in the trunk carrier. It cant have been out of it's mount behind the rear seat more than once in it's lifetime.

I really liked the wingnut that holds the metal plate that secures the rim to the carrier. It's a cool shape for a wingnut.

Does anyone know if this was stock for a 72 GMC Jimmy?
The seller was the son of the original owner, a gentleman in his seventies and he thought so.

Next to the wingnut is a tea candle for proportions.

Re: Inside spare tire carrier

For 69-72 K5s a lugnut was used to secure the spare tire on the holder - no wing nut
