Owners of the 2007 and Newer Jeep Wrangler JK who add larger tires and wheels to their vehicles will find that mounting an oversize spare on the stock tire carrier presents a problem. Different wheel offsets space the tire away from the factory rubber stops mounted on the tailgate, which causes annoying rattles and additional stress on the tire carrier.
Daystar’s replacement Tailgate Bump Stops kill the rattles permanently. Constructed of Daystar’s unique EVS foam, the Tailgate Bump Stops are a direct replacement for the factory pieces. The Daystar stops thread into the factory locations on the tailgate and are designed to accommodate all tire and wheel packages; simply trim them to fit snugly against the new spare tire. Daystar’s Tailgate Bump Stops require no tools and install in moments. Available in black, the bump stops are sold in pairs (enough for one vehicle). They are an inexpensive solution to a highly annoying problem!

Comments about DaystarTailgate Bump Stops:

Material too soft in my opinion. Threads needed to be shaved on 2 sides to get them to thread into holes with some semblance of being straight. They are adjustable which is good. Even with all the installation pains they seem to be working.


Works Great with My 37's

These Tailgate Bumpstops work great for my application. I run a 37" tire with a 17" Dick Cepek Wheel with no issues! Keep in mind these are designed for a stock tire carrier!


These Really Work

Comments about DaystarTailgate Bump Stops:

I put on larger aftermarket wheels/tires on 2011 Jeep Rubicon and the spare tire/wheel attched to the tailgate were making a noise afterwards. I installed these and it's gotten rid of about 99% of the issue. Long term solution may be having to a add an aftermarket rear bumper with a swingaway tire carries to put weight of the new wheel/tire on the bumper rather than the tailgate.


They work great!

Comments about DaystarTailgate Bump Stops:

Changed factory tires & rims to larger size. Original bump stops no longer did their job. These work fine and were easy to trim to size and install. I had to trim some material away from the studs to get them to thread into factory holes, but no big deal.

Comments about DaystarTailgate Bump Stops:

I've read some 5 star ratings for this product on other sites. The reviews talked about "lifting", "Big tires look cool" and "instructions were great". Anyone who rates this product a 5 Star did not install themselves and most likely not concerned about long-term (Or short-term) durability. First let me tell you what you'll receive ... A box containing two high density foam spacers, each with a po

Comments about DaystarTailgate Bump Stops:

I bought these even after I read the reviews that they were a pain to install and were made from cheap foam instead of a rubber material. I would consider myself above average mechanically and figured I could get them to work out. After cutting them to length, I tried to "screw" them into the holes where the stockers came from. They will only go about half way in and that is it. They stick out c

Counld not find specs on these (dimmensions)on your website but ordered anyway. Turns out they are under 5" and are not long enough for my situation. 2008 Jeep Wrangler X with Procomp 35" on 17" wheels. Needs to be at least 6 3/4" to work right.
