If you have installed larger tires on your rig then a matching spare tire is a must. The problem comes when you try to bolt that new monster tire/wheel combo on your factory spare tire mount. Rugged Ridge has the answer with the HD Tire Carrier Mount. The HD Tire Carrier Mount is constructed of heavy 1/4 inch steel plate and mounts to the tailgate. The tire is relocated two inches up and out from the old mount for larger tire clearance (Maximum tire size=35 inch).
This is a great rack as a replacement for stock, BUT I gave it 3 stars because it doesn't raise the tire high enough over some after-market rear bumpers. I have the Four-Real Steel rear bumper, and it won't clear the tire without some slight modifications.

good replacement for a larger tires 33
So easy to install, took just 30minutes. i was worried that i would not be able to use my bike rack carrier, had a inch to spare. not bad for it's prices. Wish i had bougth it sooner!
Will this mount allow me to place the tire studs in either a 5 x 5 or 5 x 4.5 bolt pattern? I would like to mount a JK spare wheel I have adapted my TJ to use.
