I want to get a rear tire carrier bumper and have been looking at the different makes and models and have sticker shock. I want a quality product but $600-$700 is a little out of my price range. I saw this tire carrier and it looks like a good product and the price is more in line with what I can afford. Can you please let me know what you think or possibly another option. I only have 31" tires on my jeep right now but am going to go to 33" soon. I use the jeep for green laning and do not have lockers so I will need D ring mounts for recovery (lots of mud). Thanks in advance for your help.
Arch, you are right the problem with being over here is that parts are hard to find. If I had a Land Rover Defender I would have it made but then again I am a jeep guy so I will scrape to get by. Quadratec will ship to the UK so do have a lifeline. Thanks for the words Doug
If a quality product is "a little out of my price range", save up a little longer to get the quality product. There is nothing more wrong than buying anything like a low-cost tire carrier that will only start to sag, rattle, etc. well before it should because a good quality item was just "a little" too expensive.
My thing is do it right or not at all. I paid a little more for my ORF spare tire carrier and 7-8 years later after installing it, it was still working as well the day that Jeep was stolen this past March as it was the day I installed it. It was entirely sag and rattle-free the last day I saw it.
I've yet to see an inexpensive tire carrier I thought was worth a damn. Save up a little longer and buy quality the first time so you won't have to buy it again later.

If you build your jeep so big and bad that it's really easy to get threw everything out there, then your going to get bored.
