    I have decided to custom fabricate a rear hitch mounted tire swing away carrier for my 2014 Summit! I was shopping at my local REI yesterday and found a Quat Pivot v2 Swing-Away Rack Adapter - Passenger-Side Swing 2” Hitch marked down at $200 in the garage sale section. I have wanted the Wilco...

    Fellow Jeepers, and especially JK owners, I'm trying to determine viability of a product I might try to manufacture and sell. Necessity being the mother of all inventions, I've found myself deciding to fabricate my own bumper to meet my needs. Because I'm going to fabricate my own for personal...
  3. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    I'm wondering if anyone has found a body mounted spare tire that is fully compatible with the Savvy TJ Stainless Steel Tub Rub Rails (iow no required cutting of the rails themselves)? I have a 2000 TJ w/ 35" tires (not going any bigger), stock tailgate, Savvy corner armor, and of course the...
  4. JK Wrangler Technical Forum
    Hi All, I recently installed a Smittybilt XRC Gen 2 rear bumper and tire carrier combo on my 2013 Jeep JK. I'm having a problem with the bottom pin bolt rattling out over a short period of time while driving. I have gone through two bolts and only had this installed for 3 weeks. For those...
  5. Tires & Wheels
    Hello all, So I recently installed the Barricade HD Tire Carrier w/ Mount (07-18 Wrangler JK). I've noticed that every 2 weeks or so, the back mounts becomes slightly loose and I experience a loud rattle from the mount making contact with the tire. I usually just pop off the spare and...

    Hello again! The previous owner of my jeep put a smittybuilt rear bumper with a swing are tire carrier on. I Know that they are not great, and needed to be lubricated every so often, but I needed to put the jeep in storage for the summer. When I came back (after almost seven months) it had...

    I got a matching wheel for the spare tire, and the offset makes the wheel stick out far on the current tire carrier. Does anyone have recommendations for good lower profile YJ tire carriers to hold a wheel with -21 mm offset?

  10. JK Wrangler Technical Forum
    I am leaning towards picking up the Teraflex HD Hinged Carrier to support my new tires/rims (BFG KO2 35x12.5s on a fuel boost rim with 4.5 backspacing). I see I can buy just the hinged carrier or the hinged carrier + the adjustable mount. My question is... with the tire/rim combo I am...
  11. JK Wrangler Technical Forum
    So I am finally getting around to upgrading my tires and rims and my stock tailgate tire carrier most likely won't be able to handle the load of the new tire/rim spare (35 BFG KO2s @ 68.2lbs and Fuel Boost 17x9 @ 30lbs). That being said, I see I have a couple of options to support the new...
  12. JK Wrangler Technical Forum
    As the title says I'm having a lot of trouble figuring out how to carry a 35" spare. I know a bumper and tire carrier is probably the best option but I don't have the cash to include that with a tire purchase. So I've been reading forum threads for a few days but I'm no closer to making a...

    First time poster to the Jeep Forum. I have a used Jeep Wrangler (2012) that has the tire carrier mounted to the door at the door hinges - seems typical for Jeeps in recent years and I expect is was factory installed. Tons of rattling while driving typical streets in the Chicago area - so I...

    Hi! The rear of my Jeep needs some work. Pretty much what I want is: - To fit a proper spare (with the stock bumper and carrier, a spare 33" tire won't fit) - has a hitch reciever Extras that would be nice: - Have the storage for gas tanks/jack in the tire carrier, but with the hitch I can...

    Im going to start work on a bumper/spare tire carrier for my tj and I wanted to make it an aitrank too. Im going to use 2x4 1/8" wall (in interest of saving weight) square tubing. I know it won't hold a lot of air but I thought it would give my little portable air compressor a head start since...

  18. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    I have a 33 inch tire I want to mount on my jeep. I'm stuck in between these two tire carriers, the XRC and the Bestop. I'm concerned with the XRC because I won't have a third break light and its so cheap...

    I am trying to decide on which rear bumper tire carrier combo I should go with. These are the 3 I am looking at right now. I have an Aj's front bumper which I really like, but I am a bit hesitant go with them again because it took 6 months to deliver my front bumper. If you have any other...
