The spacers will stick the tire off the tailgate too much and you'll put added and unnecessary stress on your tailgate causing either the hinge or the gate itself to fail.
Depending on what year your Jeep is, you can get away with running the spare on a properly back spaced wheel with no problems.
Let me know if you have any questions! I'll be happy to help.
