    Default Tire carrier rattle question

    I have a Toys By Troy bumper with tire carrier, and it is rattling. I found that where the carrier attaches to the bumper, at the latch, the piece of whatever that is supposed be between it is messed up. What is a good replacement material for that?
    Also I have read some where that when you put on a tire carrier bumper you should have one of the rubber bump stops on your tail gate to help prevent some movement of the carrier.
    Thanks.

    If its the latch making noises then talk to DevilDog--he ran into a similar problema and ordered a new latch from Beserk on here.

    And in that case you may want to talk to Beserk...

    Can you post up pics of exactly what's messed up? We may be able to help you find a replacement piece.

    Been a while since I've looked at a TBT bumper.

    From what I've read, Troy downscaled his operation but is still doing business. He may be able to help with a replacement part.

    Not that I am any help here.......until you get the replacement part just turn up the radio!! It cures all my rattling problems. I got all kind of crap hanging on my rig...I look like the Clampetts moving to Beverly Hills. My rattles even rattle but that volume button works just like WD40!

    The bravest of all Spartans was Dienekes. It is said that on the eve of battle, he was told by a native of Trachis that “the Persian archers were so numerous that, when they fire their volleys, the mass of arrows will block out the sun.”

    Dienekes, however, quite undaunted by this prospect, remarked with a laugh, “Good. Then we’ll fight in the shade!”
