I chose to go a simpler route that would be secure and not have anything hanging above or below to get in the way of anything and still be fully functional regardless of whether I was running the hardtop or softtop.

Here it is without the rear tire mounted.


Here is with the spare tire mounted.

Tons of options. See 4fit's post in this link...pretty simple looking:

Third brake light

And here's how you do it: My 3rd brake light mod

Or, you can extend it higher over your spare with something like this: Rampage Products 86615 - Rampage Products LED 3rd Brake Light Kit (CHMSL) - Quadratec

Or this: Amazon.com: Jeep Wrangler JK Third Brake Light Extension Kit (2007-2012): Automotive
