The Spartacus HD Tire Carrier System provides the ultimate in strength and stability for mounting your oversized wheel and tire. Functionally designed to manage the amplified force and vibrations produced during extreme off-road conditions. The precision die-cast aluminum Hinge Casting provides maximum strength without the excess weight of steel. The one-piece design maintains one-handed access to cargo area and rigidly links the Wheel Mount to the reinforced section of the rear quarter panel. This, in combination with forged steel hinge brackets and hardened steel pins, results in far superior load capacity than the factory tailgate hinges, thereby effectively reducing wear and increasing longevity. The Wheel Mount lifts the mounting position and incorporates depth and tilt adjustability for large diameter and wide tire options. Tested to MIL-STD-810 to simulate extended duration of vigorous off-road driving conditions. Rated for up to and including 37 inch wheel tire combinations. Includes adjustable third brake light bracket. Compatible with OE and most aftermarket rear bumpers. No drilling required.
Great product, easy install, totally eliminated my oversized spare tire rattle.

1.0Rugged ridge tire carrier
I bought this tire carrier because I liked the design of it on the back of my Jeep. However when I installed it my tail gate sagged after putting my 35” tire on it. I liked the design of this product on the back of my Jeep but now I can’t do anything about it. Can’t return it and it’s been taking me almost two weeks to get anyone to talk to about it. Sadly won’t recommend to anyone or buy again!
Great tire carrier for my 35’ spare. The carrier on my Hanson bumper was rattling like crazy. I had enough and took the carrier off the bumper and replaced it with this. Works great and is completely silent. Much easier to open the tailgate now, too (which pleases the wife).

Way better than factory. Very heavy duty. I love this purchase.

4.0Product install challenge
Product is definitely HD and easy to install. My only issue was the hinges were extremely stiff, so trying to manipulate them during the install was difficult.
