This is the GenRight Swing Out Rear tire carrier for the Jeep TJ or LJ.
Not all Tire Carriers are created equal:

  • It is Completely independent of the Rear bumper, allowing you to run any Rear bumper you choose
  • The carrier cage is on the outside (instead on in the inside) of the tire where it protects the Rear of the Jeep
  • It Will accept any bolt pattern, wheel size (15, 16, 17, 18, 19 or 20 inch) or offset
  • Our design uses 4-Point Polyurethane mounts for a rattle-free ride
  • This product is in line with our other high quality products, this externally mounted tire carrier allows you to keep your Rear seat (or Rear cargo area)
  • This tube style tire carrier is made with series of MIG welded, Heavy Duty 1-3/4 inch diameter x .120 inch wall tubes
  • The result is a stylish tire carrier fits tight to the Rear of the vehicle (only sticks back 15.5 inches off the tailgate) for the best possible departure angle
  • This is also a great rattle free way to hold a 33 inch to 42 inch spare tire that Will Not rip apart the back of your Jeep
  • Combine that with easy access by one person to change up to a 42 inch tire and you have a perfect choice for a trail rig with Big tires
