Discount Cheap Smittybilt SRC Tire Carrier 2743 Black Color for a Jeep Wrangler JK 2-Doors and JKU Unlimited 4-Doors
Best Tire Carrier for Factory Tailgate
No money for an aftermarket rear bumper? Use the stock rear door to directly mount an oversized tire (34'' to 37''). Transform your Wrangler into an overland vehicle for a long-distance offroad expedition.
Smittybilt Adjustable Tire Carrier for a Stock Mount
If you can't afford a brand new rear bumper with a built-in sturdy tire carrier, this one might be what you were looking for. Accomodates a tire of 33'' 34'' 35'' 36'' 37'' and its steel or aluminum wheel for a load up of 195 lbs. Doesn't rattle. Less expensive than the Aries Heavy Duty Spare Tire Carrier (Aries 2563000) and stronger than the Rugged Ridge 1158501.
In my humble opinion, this Smittybilt Tire Mount is the most economical option and the easiest installation you can imagine if you are not good with tools (because it doesn't require any drilling or modifications to the factory rear bumber or tailgate door). I've seen Jeepers installing it without reading the instructions in less than an hour with very basic tools.
It's also totally adjustable (height) to fit the size of your spare tire.
Want to attach storage bags, a shovel, fuel cans or other expedition accessories to your tire carrier? No problem. This guy is designed to carry 200 lbs (195 according to the manufacturer's website).
Best Tire Carrier for the Factory Tailgate Wrangler JK/JKU
Expect a very easy and intuitive installation. Customers on Amazon say the instructions are also very well written and that the Smittybilt fits perfectly on the stock rear bumper. No movement or rattling at all on the trail. It's going to keep your spare tire in place during the thoughest rides and you will forget about it the minute after you hit the trail for good.
