5.0 Awesome tire carrier

Best bang for the buck tire carrier. Install was a breeze. If your looking for a solid/affordable tire carrier, this is the one.

5.0 Quality construction

Great quality product much better choice than bumper style

2.0 Great all year!

It worked great all of one year, but that was it. After one full year my gate barely moves. I have a 35” mounted. I’ve greased the hinges, but it doesn’t last.

5.0 Great Product, needs better instructions

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.

5.0 Outstanding Carrier

Solid, affordable, best product for your money, hands down! I love that it pulls the tire tight to the tailgate. Clean look, awesome support! If you're ready to buy a carrier and are on the fence, JUMP! You will not be disappointed, period.

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.

Answered by Rex W from Apple Valley, CA on 01/22/2021

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. and Thanks for checking us out!

Answered by Thomas from arizona on 02/13/2022

Q: Which tire lock do you recommend for this carrier to keep someone from stealing my spare tire? Answer this question

A: i use a cable and lock

Answered by will on 12/31/2021

A: I am not fond of locking lug nuts (which is the only way to lock it) for the simple reason if you do a lot of back country off roading they will fail or you will not have the key when you need it the most. If your in an area where you are at risk of it getting stolen I would go to a tire shop for one that will fit but put the regular nut back on when off roading.

Answered by HotRod from Garden city, Utah on 12/29/2021

Q: My tire is 35/12.5/17. The carrier is extended to its max position but I still need another inch for the wheel studs to reach my tire. I'm not sure what the issue is and I can't find longer wheel studs anywhere. Answer this question

A: Humm. Not sure as i have the same size rim and tire width. But my tires are 37" and they fit with lots of room left. Do you have a large wheel offset? -40 or somthing?

Answered by Markw on 01/13/2021

A: If you are using the OE wheel, you will need an adapter bracket part number 3721.

Answered by Kelly from 4WP Corporate Headquarters on 01/12/2021

Q: One of the bolts that carries the tire is spinning free because the splines slip off. Any solution to this issue? Answer this question

A: If this happened to me, I would either get smittybuilt to replace the whole tire bracket portion (not the frame work that bolts to tailgate and vehicle). Or take that bracket off and have someone put a couple tack welds on it.  If you put some tack welds on one, I would do them all. Then repaint it.
