**This will not fit with the stock position of the factory lights. You will need to modify the position of the stock lights or have aftermarket lights.**
Introducing the TJ/LJ Elite Series Body Mounted Spare Tire Carrier!
Like the tire carrier for the JK and the JL, the TJ/LJ model is made from Laser Cut & Formed 3/16" , 1/4", and 3/8" all American Steel, with our classic weld style to ensure its strong enough to carry a 42" tire, you AND your closest friend on top of it.
Oilite Bronze Bushings For Lifetime Maintenance Free Use
Adjustable Tire Mount For a Variety Of Tire Sizes (About +/-4" adjusting up and down)
Ability To Hold a 42" Tire Without Rattling*
Additional tie in to the cage included for even more security
With our corner armor and the included tie-in*, were able to get a 42" tire on this thing (And can still do so with the stock Bumper)!**
Accommodates The Following Bolt Patterns
5x4.5 with 1/2-20 Stud (TJ Stock OEM Axle)
5x5 1/2-20 Stud (JK axle)
5x5 14mmx1.5 Stud (JL Axle)
8x6.5, and 8x170 Bolt Patterns (1 Ton Axles)
Optional License Plate Bracket
No Cutting, No Drilling (Update, 11/6/23. We have found there are some models that have weld-in nuts on the upper hinge, which would need to be removed to utilize the tie-in.)
Ships Raw Steel
*If you have a non-stock Cage, this should still fit if it is in the same placement. If the cage is any further forward or back, the tie-in will not work. Closer to the gate will still fit with modification, but further from the gate will not fit.
**Past 37" we would definitely recommend having a corner armor for safety. Ours can be purchased at these links:
