Heavy duty spare tire mount

Hi all, anyone aware of a heavy duty replacement spare tire mount that moves the tire up a bit but not out?

All I can seem to find move both up and out. I need a half inch or so to clear my bumper.

The only aftermarket carriers I have found move the tire out and up and for good reason. Larger tire not only equates to larger diameter but also wider tire. So they bump it up and out to compensate.

33" tire on tailgate is doable but inadvisable. A tire that size simply puts to much stress on the tailgate and eventually you'll end up with cracks and worn out hinges.

Balls... Is there any tire carrier that I don't have to buy a new bumper for? You know so I tire size upgrade doesnt cost me an extra 700 dollars.

They make some swing out tire carriers that mount to the body of the Jeep. Not sure how well or good they are but you won't need an aftermarket bumper and it will take the load off the tailgate.

Its worth it to spend it... otherwise you are going to want to go more later and end up kicking your self for modifying the body to install your body mount tire carrier...

its a JustEmptyEveryPocket... get used to it....

I had the same question. What bumper and tire carrier should I stay away from?
