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

They work great!
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.

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!

This will not eliminate totally the noise associated with aftermarket wheels with larger tires.

Keeps Spare from Ratteling
These stops work great to stop the rattle from spares on custome rims that have an offset diffrent from stock. The porblem is they do not stay in place if the spare is not on. The plug that goes into the hole on the tale gat will not hold the stop. Needs to have a better design here.

Must have for aftermarket wheels
These bump stops greatly reduced the tailgate rattle with my 35" spare on the stock tire carrier. The only con is they were on back order for months.

Daystar Bump Stops

These Really Work
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.

Will not fit all rim sizes
Purchased for use with a 37" tire on a 20" rim, mounted on a aftermarket spare extender. The product is not fully contacting the sidewall of the spare because the extra offset of the extender makes the product (untrimmed) too short, and not centered in the tire sidewall. Most smaller (under 20") rim sizes should work fine.

Daystar Bump Stops
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.
