Add a tire carrier to your new Smittybilt Gen2 XRC/SRC Bumper to get bigger spare tires on your Jeep. This new tire carrier design bolts directly to the new XRC/SRC Gen2 Bumpers, and includes Roto Pax and CB antenna mounts.
I went with everything Smittybuilt with the hopes that everything worked well together. I liked the design of this carrier because, 1st it swings with the rear door (great feature). 2nd I wanted to be able to mount two gas cans (Totopax) behind the spare as advertised. No such luck on item 2! I've done a bunch of work to finally get two cans mounted behind the tire then to realize that the steel provided by the manuf. is not straight. back to drawing board for fabricating mounts. (drives me crazy when things are not straight) also tried to contact Smittybuilt to find out how they might have been able to get a rotopax to mount to the their setup. No response to emails or voicemail. I have just outfitted a new JK with pretty much everything they sell and for the money I have invested you would think customer service would want to keep me happy. Nope! I like all of the XRC product designs but because of the lack of support from Smittybuilt, i'm done with them

It looks great and seems to be heavy duty.

Much better than adding weight to your tailgate
Eventually mounted up very well.
Would have been easier if I'd thrown the instructions out the window on the way home from picking up the bumper/carrier.
Lay out all the parts, try to distinguish what the part numbers are, and maybe label them through elimination.
If you purchase this w the bumper, mount the pivot bracket, drill out the bottom hole, set a nut plate, temporarily remove pivot pin bracket, and THEN mount the bumper.
Some of the steps are in poor order, especially if mounting the tire carrier as well.
Leave everything loose until it's time to line up the tailgate bracket to the bumper.
