thgr8alex My 33s are on stock carrier as well. I see no issues with it. Seems strong enough and barely able to fit. Haha i got like 1/4" from bumper and middle tail light. Other than being tight, no issues

CALRJ98TJ Thanks for the info....I'm looking to upgrade my tires from the stock to 33x12.5 as well. I am going to give the stock spare tire carrier a try as from what I have been able to read on here it is about even on being able to do it or not.

Barmanvarn Just my opinion, a 33 should be no issue on your factory carrier. I've run one for almost 2 years, do some decent offloading when I can, and have no issues.

Be sure to upgrade your bump stops to keep the tire tight against the gate.

Stock Spare tire carrier

So a few months ago I bought some 33x12.5.15 duratracs for my jeep and never got a spare. So now I am looking to buy the spare and I know some people say you can put a 33 on the spare carrier and some say you can't. But I've heard of ways of upgrading or beefing up the stock carrier to hold a 33. How can I do this? I plan on getting a swing away tire carrier eventually but I am a 19 year old poor college kid and just don't have the money for one right now. Thanks in advance for any help given!
