    Thinking of getting a tiregate spare tire holder to replace the tailgate. Dont really want to lose the rear camera though. Does anyone have a solution with a tiregate carrier and keeping the camera somehow?

    One of my friends got a spare stock rear camera and mounted it between the bumper and the hitch, as he has a bed rack that also mounts the tire the same as your picture. He is about to change the setup though as he just bought the same Tiregate as you. It is just being line-x coated.

    HOLESHOT and BajaTaxi made one from a trailer hitch tow bar thing.
    Not sure why you couldn't put it through the hole with the rubber grommet in the (in the second picture to the right of the amber light). Maybe bumper would block it? Seems like the best place. Not having done it myself I don't know.

    I have this same Tiregate rack. The camera was repositioned to the license plate area. See pitctures.

    I need the bed space so if anyone wants to trade thei OEM tailgate for the Tiregate, hit me up!

    I thought Wilco no longer made these and I haven't been able to find one.
