Modified stock spare carrier

Although I know it's not advised, I am going to attempt to mount my 285/75r16 on my '03 rubicon stock spare carrier. I raised the third brake light so that it would clear the tire, but it hits the bumper at the bottom and won't fit. How are people getting around this. It this what they use?:

i dont know if you need the entire length of the lug bolts that the rim sits on, but you can put a spacer behind it or use some washers. This put my spare out just enough to clear my bumper. Quick fix until i finish fabbing up my rear bumper and tire carrier. Its just so much cheaper to build one yourself if you have the resources.

A body lift can help as well.

Yeah mine won't even get on the lug bolts at all. I guess I will have to get that Tomken spacer. I am just weary about the tailgate hinges and stock spare carrier holding up.

Make sure that the tire rests solidly on the bumpstops or you will get vibes and screw up your gate.

I still have the factory aluminum wheels (stock rubicon wheels). I swear with the tire the thing has to weight 100 lbs.

Will do, I plan on getting the spare tire relocation bracket and extending the rubber isolators.
