Spare tire mount

I know I have to replace the tire mount because of the size of my tires. My question is what is the best? Tires are 33x12.5x17.. Any and all help would be great.. Thank you!!

You don't HAVE to replace the mount with a 33. That having been said, if you go off-road a lot, you may want to consider the TF hinge or depending on you budget, a new bumper/carrier.

I went with the TF hinge for my 33" spare, not for tire size but for weight. My jack and rotopax all ride there and I don't have to worry about something falling off.

The Teraflex Tire Carrier and Adjustable Mount is a nice system that distributes the weight of the tire and will allow you to move the tire vertically and mount it so you can still see out the back of the Jeep. BUT it is expensive.

The RedRock 4x4 Carrier is the same principal but it is steel and not adjustable. It is also cheaper.

The other option is a new bumper with a tire carrier. Let me know if you have any questions or would like a quote!
