The stock spare tire carrier on most Jeeps is not made to accommodate rigs running larger tires, so 4 Wheel Parts carries a variety of spare tire carrier adapters. These attach to the rig's existing spare tire carrier and adjust to fit a variety of tire sizes. There are also Swing Out Latch Assemblies or Tire Carrier Linkages. These are leverage systems which attach to the tailgate and use a metal arm to swing the spare tire out from the tailgate. Popular brands include Rugged Ridge, Synergy Manufacturing and Rampage. Installation typically requires no drilling into the body and very little drilling into the actual tire carrier.
Like with most vehicle parts, your spare tire carrier is composed of several components, each of which plays an essential function in its ability to do its job correctly. One part of your spare tire carrier that needs to be in good working order is the tire adapter. A spare adapter may be small, but it can be hugely helpful if you're trying to build a custom tire mount. Most jeepers require custom tire mounts because they like to carry a matching tire on the trails with them, as opposed to a tiny and feeble factory spare. If you're like most jeepers and need to build a mount that is up to the job of carrying a beefy tire, shop our collection of truck tire adapters here at 4 Wheel Parts.
