2.0 Smittybilt Tire Mount

Not compatible with 2001 TJ. 3rd brake light was completely unusable/incompatible. I had to make some mods to the mounting hardware to get it to work with my rear door.

5.0 Easy install and better support

The appearance is nice, and is worth the money hands down. The directions aren't written well but are well enough to get it done.

5.0 Good product

I used this product on my JK to mount a 35" spare. Very easy to install and works great. Lock point for pad lock works well. Tailgate works easy with tire mounted.

4.0 Great Mount

Bought this mount when I upgraded wheels and tires. My factory spare tire carrier would not allow me to mount my aftermarket wheel and 35" tire. Have had the product for a month now and no problems. Allows me to carry my full size spare and the various mounting heights allowed me to adjust it to my specs.

3.0 A little heavy on the tailgate

Its a great economical way to put a bigger spare on a JK. But my advice is don't skimp. While I've had not problems it concerns me with the weight it adds to the tail gate. If I had it to do again I would go with a new back bumper.
