Need pictures of TJs without tire carrier.
 
I am thinking of removing the tire carrier/tire and third brake light to see if I like the look. Would like to see some pictures of TJs without tire carrier -back and side views.

Also what are the pros and cons of doing this other than a flat tire. I do plan on adding a third brake light LCD strip inside hardtop if I like the look.

If you wheel any at all you would want to carry a spare with you.... even if you don't I would think a spare tire would be a must if traveling very far from home. Just something to think about if you havent yet......

I've been wheeling twice with out it. No problems yet, fingers crossed. Don't really have a choice though. Sold my old wheels and only have 4 now lol

With a little planning ahead you can figure out a way to carry it in the back. Also... I've been wheeling in Moab for 6 yrs in a row basically... Multiple trips a year most times... And I have yet to see a fail. This caused me to think that if you just had one back at camp the worst you'd be in for is catching a ride back out to grab it in the off chance something did happen. I haven't done that as I carried mine where my rear seat was, but it was a thought.

Spare is in the tub in this pic.
Thankfully my 97 softtop doesn't have the vent panel in the middle of the tailgate.

Did I say you had to? No. I just said it is probably a good or smart idea.... It would be along the lines with the tools you would take with you when you wheel.... :cheers2:

Some people take a spare, tools, 15 lb of Jack Links, and everything else that would allow survival in the wilderness for 12 days. Other people take a tire patch kit, small tool bag with the bare necessities, and that's it. The rest either stays in the garage or at camp, depending on the circumstances and distance from home. I'm of the bare necessities school of thought and it's been working well for a while now. I don't intend to change anything. ;)

OP, here's an updated picture for you

Knock of wood here. Haven't had a spare on any of my 3 JEEPS for the past 33 years, and never needed one.
