ok need some with stock tire carrier

here's what I have I purchase and 31 inch all terrain mad at them on my 1997 stock gambler wheels I'm trying to fit the spare tire on the rear stock tire carrier bolts are too short is there any way to extend the bolts or maybe perhaps I'm doing something wrong 31Iinch in stock tire carrier should fit right?

Pain... is .... weakness... leaving the body....

Stock wheels with larger tires didn't on my old TJ, too much back spacing. I trimmed the rubber stops on the tailgate to make the spare fit.

What's the width on your tires? As said though the stock tires have such high backspacing that fitment can be an issue.
Thank you Dave Cole, Dynomax, Falken and all the Spec Class sponsors!!
