Absolutely not made for a 37" tire

Comments about Rugged RidgeHeavy-Duty Tire Carrier Kit:

The carrier was installed per every step of the instructions..using red loctite and a torque wrench. The carrier did not perfectly align when installing and the pivot box that adjusts and holds tire, will NOT keep my 37" tire in place. The box sags and therefore lowers tire until it pushes down on the bumper.


Solid Carrier, Worth the Money.

Comments about Rugged RidgeHeavy-Duty Tire Carrier Kit:

This is a solid tire carrier! There are some other carriers that are nothing more than temporary fixes for a long term issue: how to support a bigger tire. I had a 35' tire on stock wheel that wouldn't fit with the stock tire carrier and after market bumper. Rugged Ridges' was fairly priced, though it seems like a lot, think of it as an investment. I'd rather spend more money and protect my Jeep t


A good investment

Comments about Rugged RidgeHeavy-Duty Tire Carrier Kit:

Heavy duty construction, well built, tight hinge pins. Mounted a 35" tire on carrier, no squeaks or rattles. Easy to follow instructions and a complete kit. I like that my gate remained in the factory configuration, only one thing to open. The hinge also has detents for holding the gate fully opened, a nice feature.
