Hanson Off Road JK Tailgate Mount Tire Carrier

Does anyone have one of these or know anything about it? Does it really do what they say? Can I mount my 35" spare on it and not have to worry about it being too heavy? Even when doing some light off roading?

for the price, I'd spend a little more and get the teraflex version. It looks much nicer, and it mooks much more solit to me.

I looked at it first. But my thought was I would rather go ahead and spend a little more for a bumper with carrier. But I found the hanson on craigslist that I may be able to get for much less.

this one is priced about the same as the hanson and will handle up to a 37" tire.
works with the stock tire mount.

Although it’s not a “looker” it does seem to be built in a way that should hold up just fine.

Personally, save up for a bumper with carrier. IMO its worth the extra money to get a full bumper with it already built into it, and cheaper.

How cheap are you talking about, 500 bucks is not cheap to me for just a carrier..

Even used I would not put that on my jeep. Looks cheap IMO. The Teraflex is a much better looking option.

Holy hell is that thing ugly but I guess if you get a good price on it off craigslist it looks like it's functional.

You can check out the AEV rear tire carrier kit that can be used with the factory bumper. I am surprised that more people don't use this.

I was doing my best to keep from saying that but now that you did I wholly agree. For the love of god, would someone please put that thing out of its misery? My eyes, my eyes.

Good point.

I had bought that for my Jeep a while back but ended up butchering the stock bumper and decided to toss it. So then I ordered their (AEV) bumper and now have the complete package. It cost me more doing it that way but all said and done I really like the outcome.
