    Default rear tire carriers

    Anybody have any good suggestions for a tire carrier? Jeep is a 2010 Rubi with 35x12.50x17 BFG KM2's..not looking to break the bank but do want a good product. Front bumper is a Fab_Tec stubby with XRC 10 winch with synth rope. Home in less than 90 days. Wife has been getting stuff installed as a welcome home gift but was at a loss for the rear bumper,,,Thanks!

    I have a Dirtworx bumper/tire carrier that also holds 2 jerry cans and a hilift jack. Check him out on e-bay or at dirtworx.com

    Sorry, was just looking at his site and see that he doesnt make them for JK yet. might shoot him an email. It takes a while to get the bumper, but I think it was worth it.

    I have the Rock Hard bumper and tire carrier. It is super heavyduty. Made from 1/4 inch steel. Also has a grease fitting on the bearing, to grease the ball bearings. The only thing that I don't like is the finish. It's 'textured', and is harder to get clean. Maybe they have an option for gloss by now. Easy to put on, but you'll need a buddy or block and tackle. Mine don't rattle, but I've heard that some do. I think they didn't get it adjusted right.

    Stay away from the Warn. It rattles like a mofo on the trails.

    I use LoD Offroad. Very sturdy, no rattles, and good pricing.

    If you are handy with a welder I say build one. I only spent about $130 for all my matirials and I went pretty heavy. If I were to buy one as heavy duty as mine it would have to be in the $1k range.

    I have the Bestop Oversize Tire Carrier and really like it. It mounts to the body and the tail gate and swings open with the tail gate. Convenient to have a one-step instead of two-step process to open the back.

    i would have to agree. my lod stubby looks great, functions great and has a positive lock to keep it closed.

    No one posted pics, but here's what I got on my TJ, it's from Wilderness.

    SGM O has the same bumper set up differently. You can get fuel can brackets, brackets for a shovel and axe, mount the hi-lift etc. I have my CB antennae mounted where the hi-jack should go. It's pricey, but I like it. One problem I had with it was greasing the bearings, but I was able to get that sorted and it now works like a charm. In order to get it open, you have to unscrew a bolt that has a handle on it. I did have problems with the bolt rattling loose last time out on the trail, but I think I just didn't have it tight enough.
