Smile Bestop Oversize Tire Carrier Install

I bought my first Jeep, a 2014 JKU Freedom Edition, almost 2 months ago and I'm loving it so far!

I installed some Ace Engineering Rock Rails and got a 3" BDS Suspension Lift. Next step is to get some 35x12.5 KM2's, which I am getting put on in a couple of days. I ordered a Bestop Oversize Tire Carrier to support the new spare tire/wheel.

My question is this: Can I install the oversize tire carrier now, so that when I roll out of the tire place I can have my spare tire already in place? Or should I just toss it in the back of my Jeep and install the tire carrier later, once I have the tire?

The install instructions said I need to use the new tire to measure how long I need to extend the brake light, but I'm wondering if I can't just estimate it for now then tweak it later.

I'm hoping someone has gone through this and can give me some advice.
