Technically, called a "tire stop" for when your spare is mounted on back of tailgate.

Tail gate folds down! It is for the original factory spare tire carrier. Keeps it from swinging to far open. The tire carrier bolts up to the 4 holes just to the right of your tail gate. Two on top and two on bottom

Thanks guys
Yeah that's just a random pic I found online. I have the oem swing carrier on mine but never realized that it helped stop it!

I was thinking of my YJ, tailgate swings open and has spare tire mounted directly to it, and has the exact same type of tire stop on the body.

I want one of those tire carriers. Mine is broken in five places.
