The Rugged Ridge Spare Tire Delete Plate eliminates the factory spare tire carrier on 2007-2018 Wrangler JK models for reduced weight, greater rear visibility and improved departure angles when off-road driving. Stamped from brawny steel plate, precisely drilled to match the JK tailgate and given a black textured powder coat, each Spare Tire Delete Plate is engineered to look like a factory-quality part in both fit and finish. With seven pressed vent louvers and an eye-catching cutout logo, the Rugged Ridge Spare Tire Delete Plate is a serious styling upgrade for anyone who prefers the hardcore off-road image or simply runs a tire too large for conventional carry. The Rugged Ridge Tire carrier Delete Plate is also available in a complete kit that includes both a low-profile license plate bracket and high-mount brake light relocation bracket for a total tailgate makeover.
Easy install and looks great. If you have an antenna for cb or other radios attached to carrier, you shouldn’t have any problems keeping it there. If you like it there?

This was of a heavier gauge steel than I originally thought. I like that the louvers all open downwards to help keep water out of the tailgate unlike some other designs that are out there. Also, fits like a glove and no repositioning it to have it fit better.
