Humvee Rico Tire Carrier Main Arm

Post by Spagman » Sat Mar 21, 2020 6:31 pm

Hello,
I am looking for at main arm for the Humvee Rico tire carrier. Have the rest of the parts and only need the main arm. The Rico part number is STA003-04P. Main arm is the circled item in the image

Please PM me if you have one for sale.
Will consider partially complete tire carrier as an alternate as long as it includes the main arm.

Thanks,
Spagman

You sure your not looking for a Rhino tire carrier ?
Never heard of a Rico

Hi Urban Camo,

The Humvee tire carrier is made by a company called BPR/RICO Equipment Inc. out of Ohio. I downloaded the latest installation & operating instruction manual and it does not mention Rhino at all. RICO is on the heading of every page and they refer to the tire carrier as "HMMWV Drop Down Spare Tire Carrier"

Here is a link to the brochure.

After doing more digging I see that a similar tire carrirer was offered under the name Rhino, so perhaps RICO is now the alternate supplier.

Thanks for replying to my thread.

RICO and Rhino are one and the same. Apparently the 2 companies have an alliance/partnership and both market the same tire carrier.
