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!
Great product service and price. Easy install. Works great. Can trim depending on tire size
I felt these replaced the shorter OEM parts, and accomplished the point of what they were meant for. The spare tire did not rattle, and the parts were installed with no issues whatsoever.
Great little item. When oversize tires, or different backspacing leaves the stock units non-functional, these adjustable stops stabilize the new tires/wheels. easily trims to the proper size.
Great product. Easy to install. Great for bigger tire/wheel combination on stock tire carrier. Stock bump stop too short for my tire/rim setup. Product once adjusted eliminates the rattle. Great product.
I used the Daystar bump stops in conjunction with MBRP stiffeners for the stock tailgate / tire mount. My 35" tire on a 17x9 rim (-12mm) fits the stock mount without a spacer and the MTZ Baja tire does not quite touch the stock bumper. This is a great set up for street use and mild off road. If you are not ready yet for an aftermarket bumper and tire swing arm, this is a great way to go. No shake, no rattle, all go!
