So I finally got mine installed, I'm getting a clunk in the back which I still need to figure out... but I got a quick question, should the tire be touching the bar behind it? I had a tiny gap once everything was installed...

I tightened up some loos bolts on mine (dealer install), then still had a clunk... I followed AEV tip & no clunk: Where the big pole seats into the plastic cup/rest may needs to be tightened. Open the gate about ~2" then tighten the adjuster till the pole hits the plastic seat.
My tire hits the pole, but I'm ~13' wide.

YES!! the carrier is designed to have the tire pressed against both the horizontal and vertical tubes. the instructions say to tighten til the tire touches, then tighten additional "x" amount of turns (can't remember but its in the instructions) to get about 1/4" of squish in the tire. this eliminates all movement. if you have a "clunk" u most likely need to tighten the turnbuckle a bit.

Thanks guys! I must have missed that section of the instructions... or glossed over them like I usually do.

Anyone install the AEV Tire mount to the Call of Duty bumper... How difficult is it? Is there anything else required besides the tire mount pics would be nice. Thanks

there is a special AEV kit for this that includes the passenger side water tank that has a hole molded in it for the carrier to pass through

It's pretty straightforward... you can get the instructions on the AEV site. You'll want someone's help aligning the tire carrier during the pre-fitment, and again when you go to put the bumper back on (several loose pieces have to be lifted on at the same time and then bolted in place once on the frame).

You do have to drill two small (3/8"?) holes in the frame, but you're doing it through holes in a bracket you have test-fit in place so there's no worry about getting the locations wrong. Grab some touch-up paint beforehand so you're ready.

I have a Moab, and thinking about installing one of those. Do I have to remove the bumper or can I just remove the water tank and install the clamp to the frame? I realize that I need to purchase the carrier kit with the hole molded water tank. I wander if I can do it without removing the whole bumper. Anybody tried it before?

You should be able to do it without taking the bumper off. You will have to loosen everything though. The bumper actually has to swing back a bit to get the tank out, so you'll want everything loose. I did mine by myself, not too difficult, but just take your time with the adjustment before you drill the set holes. The shims were a great help. There's not very much detail about the shims in the directions, but just play with the different combos, it will be pretty obvious which one works the best to remove the droop.

Looks so good. I got mine ordered from Northridge, and gonna put it in on Thursday. Free shipping made the deal even better. I'm trying to upload some pictures and I can't figure how to. Would somebody guide back on the right path? 1stimage how did you upload them pics?
