2007 X... the spare will fit on the stock mount, and it will rest on the bumper to compensate for the extra weight. If I opened my tailgate all the time, I might consider an aftermarket. I do have to slam it, and the tire kinda rides up on the bumper
spider6..to each their own..I think the 2dr looks ridiciulous with 37's, (4dr looks great) and I can't imagine trying to drive one more than 2 miles a day...unless I were to spend 5K to re-do the entire suspension.
kaffeene.. I guess you could get away w/o the spacers on the rear, but I wouldn't if you are concerned at all about looks. Go back intot this thread and look at the red jeep posted...I don't think they have spacers on it all. I have seen a few others w/o and they really look dumb with the tires tucked in the wheel wells. Just putting the spacers on w/o the lift/tires made a huge improvement. I would like to actually see some 2-2 1/4 inch spacers, but I'm not sure if that would work from an enigineering standpoint. bottom line...do spacers front and rear
