Elite Series Body Mounted Spare Tire Carrier (JL / JLU)
If you're looking for a hinged tire carrier for your JL, you've found the best one on the market. Our Elite Series tire carrier features an HD hinge system that will allow you to carry up to a 42" tire without rattling or fear of damaging your tailgate. Our proprietary hinge and brace system ties the Elite series tire carrier into the tub of the Jeep to provide the strongest mounting of any tire carrier out there. An adjustable tire carrier mount allows you to mount the tire itself higher or lower, depending on the size of your tire and the preference of how high you want it mounted, to give you the option of having as much rear window visibility as possible. Our Elite series tire carrier features several options for different bolt patterns, so if whether you have a stock 5 x 5 bolt pattern or an 8-lug pattern, we have you covered. License Plate Relocation and Backup Camera mounts included make this the most functional tire carrier on the market.
