The NEW Owl tire carrier for Sprinters bolts to the hinges and installs in minutes without drilling. Used by some of the industry’s top outfitters, this carrier is rock solid. We meticulously engineered multiple articulation points to allow normal use of the door so there are no latches or bulky bumpers to install (and kill your departure angle!). The Owl carrier attaches to the hinges and replaces the magnetic catch on the door. Installs in just a few minutes. Patent Pending. For mounting on driver’s door only, for passenger’s door, order high mount tire carrier so the door latch is accessible.

Owl Vs. Bumper Mounted Tire Carrier - The majority of tire carriers on the market today are bumper mounted systems. These systems are complex and have a number of drawbacks compared to our simple bolt-on system.
Simplicity and Weight - Our rack is just over 20lbs. By eliminating a massive bumper, you eliminate a lot of bulk and weight.
Price - While we are not a budget product, the cost of just a tire carrier or just a box carrier is always going to be substantially less then the cost of a bumper AND a tire/box combo.
