Over sized tire carrier

I am a proud new owner of a 2005 Jeep Wrangler sport. I am new to the jeep world and this jeep had no spare tire. At what point is a oversized spare tire carrier necessary. My tires are 33/12.50R15.

I took my jeep out on the beach for the first time yesterday. I can not wait for warmer weather.

Hi kaleb5000, congrats on your new Jeep and welcome to the forum.

The stock tire carrier on your TJ will have no problem with the 33 size tires that you have. Just make sure that when the tire is mounted that it is snug against the tailgate snubbers (bump stops). That is very important.

There currently is no mount at all on my TJ. Do you have a particular mount you like? Also what are the snubbers?

You should be able to find a used OEM carrier in excellent condition for next to nothing. Snubbers (tailgate bump stops) are what your spare tire will be up against when mounted. It helps to keep the tire from moving (vibrating) when the Jeep is underway. Without them you run the risk of cracking the carrier itself or worse.

If you are missing them then you can either get them (OEM) at the dealer or buy these. For the Daystar ones you just cut them (very easy) to fit. You also want the tire when mounted to be up against them tight. They should actual deform (bend) a small amount.

The tailgate will have two small holes for the bump stops. All you do is just push them in.

Thanks for the help. I do not have snubbers. The ones you listed are for 07 or newer and I am having trouble finding any for a 2005. Any suggestions.

Sorry about that, I apparently had JKs on my mind when searching. Glad you found the right ones.

welcome to the club, I agree can't wait for warm weather!

If it's not supposed to move and does use duct tape.
If it's supposed to move and doesn't use WD40
