Hey, it's me again and i am just laboring over the need of a fortified Spare Tire carrier for my Wrangler, so I figured I would ask "The Brain Center."
I have looked over and over for quite some time and now I think I may be close.
Here is my dilemma:
I have a hidden hitch installed and do not want to replace the Factory bumper (forgive me; i love the stock bumpers) and just about every overpriced (did i mention waaay overpriced?) rear bumper tire swing away has a 2" receiver already installed.
So, I hooked up with my friends at Bestop and I am now interested in their High Rock oversized tire carrier. This seems to be my best bet because I can retain the factory look, hidden hitch, and she can finally see some dirt before we Northwesterners bid adieu to our Summer... She will see mud and snow shortly thereafter.
Does anyone have any experience with this install of this Carrier? I am not a mechanic by any stretch and it looks like I will have to drill some holes..
I only have a 33" spare, but I think it is just too much for the factory mount to handle while off-roading.
