The Smittybilt SRC Oversize Tire Carrier is the most economical way to mount an oversized tire onto your Jeep Wrangler JK.
Easy to install and a must have for oversized spare tire. It made all the rattling go away!
Best bang for the buck tire carrier. Install was a breeze. If your looking for a solid/affordable tire carrier, this is the one.
Great quality product much better choice than bumper style
A must have if you want to install a hi lift or similar jack to your HD pivot carrier. Mounting was simple. Instructions not needed with simple 6 bolt application to carrier and jack mounting hardware even though available. Must remove floor plate of jack to mount. Recommend a Handle keeper as well after mounting to secure it.
Instructions were poor, product overall is great::
Great item. Fast shipping. Could not be happier. Happy
I was running 285/65/R18 tires on my stock tire carrier. Every time I went over a bump, I would get a rattle in the tailgate. I did a lot of research on tire carriers and this seamed to be a great option at a decent price. I chose this one because the up/down, in/out adjustability of the tire mount and third tail light. After installing, all the rattles are gone. I absolutely love this carrier. The installation instructions are terrible, so I suggest watching youtube videos prior to installing.
This carrier looks great on my jeep and is very heavy duty. Only giving 4 stars because I had to modify the pivot a little bit so I could place the tire on the setting closest to the tailgate as I have extremely offset wheels and didn't want the spare sticking out so much. Also the license plate relocation bracket had to be purchased separately, it is not included.
Q: My license plate is not mounted on the spare tire it is actually on the bumper. Does this bracket repurpose my third brake light? Answer this question

A: Yes it does, I didn't relocate my license plate if you're going to relocate your license plate it will go under the third brake light.

A: Yes, comes with the bracket for 3rd brake light.

Q: How can I mount a High Lift jack and Roto Paks to this mount? Answer this question
A: Mmmm. Not sure if there are provisions for it or not. Email smittybilt and ask
Answered by Slowpoke from Ohio on 01/22/2021
A: Smittybilt makes a hilift jack mount for this carrier. There are a couple of different options for the Roto-Pax, they make an attachment that attaches the the upper rail of the lift, or there is also a tire wrap mount that I have seen as well.

A: Hello, For this bumper, you can actually get the Smittybilt Trail Jack Mount part number S/B2844. No additional drilling is required. And for the RotoPAX can get tricky because of the spare tire you have, I will provide a solution that will work for MOST cases. We do offer the RotoPAX Universal Mount part number ROTRX-TM which mounts behind the spare tire at the center. You will also need a RotoPAX mount (with the handle) we offer a couple here are the three: ROTRX-LOX-PM (this one is lockable), ROTRX-DLX-PM , and the ROTRX-PM. Here are videos regarding the RotoPAX, one video shows the setup of the Universal Mount by the spare tire, and the other video explains the 3 handles. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vWAq7TvOYgs and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wBcO04UlJ30&feature=emb_logo Thanks for checking us out!

Q: Does this tire carrier work with the factory backup camera? Answer this question
A: Yes, relocation bracket is included. Make sure you read the instructions and check the diagram on the first page it helped me figuring out what bracket goes on first.

A: Yes. However, depending on the wheel offset it does block some of the peripheral vision.
Answered by OHMDB from Ohio on 10/06/2020
A: Yes it does.You can see it in the middle of the mounted spare

Q: I have a 34 in KM2 on the stock carrier and it rattles a lot on rough roads, will this carrier eliminate the rattle? Answer this question
A: This tire carrier will handle up to 37 inch tires I use it with 35s soon to be 37‘s I would recommend it it does not rattle.

A: Yes will make it more rigid

Q: I have a 35” mounted. I’ve greased the hinges, but it doesn’t last. Gate is hard to open. Is there a fix for this? Answer this question
A: I have this same problem. My kids can barely close the gate. Loved it for a year. A lot of money for something that works well for only a year.
Answered by BenB from Maple Grove MN on 09/16/2022
A: I mounted a 33 inch, assuming you have the same heavy duty Smittybilt as mine, it works smoothly. I was amazed how quiet it makes the ride even over rough terrain compared to the stock carrier
