Jeep JK Wranglers lend themselves very well to big tires. Large wheel wells and strong axles make a good combination. As the tires get bigger, other necessities pop up, and a matching spare tire is usually one of the first items on the list. The factory tire carrier does its job for a factory sized tire, but when it comes to bigger meats, the plastic carrier just doesn’t cut it.
This is when the new Aluminum JK Rear Tire Carrier by GenRight comes into play. The Rear Tire Carrier is built from massive 1.75-inch diameter 6061-T6 aluminum tubing, and can support up to a 42-inch tall tire. Featuring four mounting locations for a super secure fitment; your tire isn’t going anywhere by acccident. This unit works completely independent of the rear bumper, allowing for multiple combinations and retrofits, especially nice if you have already dropped some coin on a non-swing-away style bumper.
The 6061-T6 aluminum is corrosion-resistant and lightweight. A steel version is also available if you want to save a buck or two, and don’t mind the extra weight. The carrier is designed to work with any bolt-pattern or non-stock-offset wheel. Each unit is 100-percent assembled and TIG welded in Simi Valley, California.
