Before and After

He guys. New here. I bought this '02 Wrangler in September. It already had a lift on it. I don't know how much lift or what kind (Ranchero maybe). It has Ranchero shocks on the front and back. I added the 7" flares from Rugged Ridge and a Reciever hitch.

I added the fuel door cover, Grill Inserts, Rugged Ridge Body Armor (they didn't send the hood stone cover, but it's on its way).

Today I recived my factory style wheel for the spare and had a Goodyear Wrangler mounted on it. It's a 33X12.50. I had to detach the 5 rubber stops from the tailgate and uninstall the third brake light and bracket for the spare to fit. It's still really tight. How do I create some distance from the spare and the tailgate without buying a new swing away? I would like to be able to create enough distance from the spare and tailgate to install the rubber stops back on the tailgate. Any suggestions?







So what do ya'll think!?

Looks good.

There is an adapter for the spare mount. Can't say I've heard either way on them though.
