Here is the 33x12.5



A few inches higher and you will loose alot of your view out the rear

I'm guessing the tyres in the tub might restrict your view out the rear as well.
But hey, it's good to have spares.

Do you need to drop the gas tank to install the Dirt Worx tire carriers?

Dirtworx uses the same 3 OEM mounting points, plus 2 more a few inches in-board of the stock ones. I have yet to crawl underneath and check clearance on the two inboard holes. I mounted my Dirtworx using only the OEM bumper mounting points, I decided to let the mud mark the holes for me, so I don't mark them wrong. I'll be addressing this tomorrow, so I'll post up again when I'm done.
Here's a pic of the mounting points I'm talking about:

Upon further examination, yes, you do need to drop the tank to add the additional 2 bolts on each side.
On a side note, I do have a different swing-out than shown above. I have this one:

Thanks for the info. That's the same carrier I'm considering.

I just posted up my review of the Dirtworx bumpers here, if you're interested.

I really like this carrier but the issue with the screw down latch coming loose may be a deal breaker for me. I am torn between this one and the one Tuff Designs makes.

I was able to stop it from coming loose with a simple starwasher. You could always shoot him an email, and see if he can make one with a different latch setup.

I've got a "loaded" Dirtworx rear bumper/swing-out tire & gas can carrier on my '06 LJ and I did not have to drop the gas tank. In fact Robert assured me I would not have to prior to my purchase. Of course, with the gas mileage I get, I'm not sure i'd even notice four extra 7/16" holes in my gas tank

The spare is noticeably higher than stock. I doubt you'd need or want it any higher.

I keep two fully loaded NATO cans on mine and it has taken some VERY hard hits on trails with NO damage other than to the bedliner finish.

#1 you do not need to drop the gas tank to install the bumper. All you need to do is be careful when you drill the holes. I held a small sheet of steel between the tank and bumper when drilling as an added precaution.

#2 He offers several dif styles of rear bumpers and you do have the option of telling him exactly what you want. I do not like the screw down type so I went with the lever system as seen in my pics above.
