Dual Swing System Accessories FAQ
accessories for the dual tire carrier systems are optional, add-on features that
are bolt-on installation and can be added at a later date as well as at time of
purchase with your rear bumper.
accessories can I carry on one arm?
Typically, a spare tire will take up entire mounting space available on one
side of a dual swing system. If you are purchasing a single swing variant of a dual
swing system you would only have room to mount the tire and no other
accessories on the one arm.
A non-tire bearing arm can hold any
combination of up to 3 additional accessories with the purchase of a Tri-mount
bar. Standard mounting without the tri-mount bar allows you to mount any 2
accessories (excluding the Quad Geri mount which takes up all the mount space
on a swing arm). A tri-mount bar would
allow you to “float” a 3rd accessory by allowing the accessories to
be mounted to the bar which is then mounted to the arm.
Spare Tire Mount: Tire mounts
include 3 studs and lugs and are designed to be universal in nature, working
with a variety of aftermarket options with the exception of a narrow wheel with an extreme positive offset and a very
wide tire- this option may require you utilize a spacer to work with our tire
mount bracket (we do not supply spacers).
Geri Flat Panel Fuel
and Water Packs: Expedition One’s Geri brand flat panel
water and fuel containers hold just over 4 gallons of fluid and may be mounted
with our unique Geri Mount brackets and latches on both single and dual swing arm
systems. Due to changes in regulations on portable fuel container spouts, our
fuel version packs are only available for sale for use outside of the USA.
Expedition One Geri mount plates and latches
and extension pieces (which allow you to mount more than one can to a plate) are
compatible with Rotopax full-bodied fuel cans 4 and 4.5 gallons. This does
not include Rotopax cans that unlock/come apart.
The Expedition One QUAD Geri mount system
allows you to mount up to 4, flat panel Expedition One or Rotopax cans on one
of your swing arm systems. No additional accessories can be mounted on the same
swing arm as a Quad can mount due to limited spacing.
NATO/Scepter can mounts: The NATO/Scepter can mount is the more
traditional square shaped metal or plastic fuel or water can. NATO can mounts
can be mounted both flush to the arm or perpendicular to accommodate install of
Hi-Lift Jack Mount/PullPal Mounts: Dual tire carrier systems offer a Hi-Lift
jack mount and a hi-liftjack and PullPal mount combo options. This bracket
mounts the Hi-Lift Jack and/or PullPal vertically on the tire carrier arm.
Ladders and Tables: The ladder and table options for the 4Runner, Lexus, and FJ
Dual swing-out systems mount on the top and inside of a swing arm respectively,
and would not be counted as one of the 2-3 accessories mounted on an arm. For
example, a 4Runner, Lexus, and FJ dual swing could have a ladder, table,
hi-lift jack mount, and 1-2 NATO can mounts.
Back-Up Camera & License Plate Relocation
Brackets: Truck dual rear systems and
Gladiator dual rears have an optional aluminum back-up camera relocation bracket
which relocates the camera to just above the license plate. 4Runner, Lexus, and FJ dual swing out systems have
a combo license plate/backup camera relocation bracket option as well as an
option to relocate just the license plate. These also do not count towards one
of the 3 accessories that can be mounted on a swing arm system as they are not
mounted on the arm, but on the rear door.
