Stock TJ spare tire carrier.

I just removed my stock spare and replaced it with my new wheel and tire. Once installed I noticed that the tire is not centered. Looking at that hitch and the third eye brake light it is offset a little. Is this normal or is there and adjustment somewhere. It's not off by much, just a couple inches. I didn't have time to take it back off and look for any adjustment.
Thanks

it is off center to leave space for the handle.

Cool thanks
I have had this jeep for over a year and never noticed until I put my new spare on and stepped back to take a look. I guess the stock spare wasn't worth paying attention to.

A-Men! I felt the same way about my stock spare. Having a new matching 'knobby' on the back is a BIG improvement!
