Jesus....Polishing rims? What kind of bling bling rig you running?
I wax the paint once a year if I remember. Wheels get hosed off.

|Triple88a||spanky thats why i haven't polished the rest of my rims.. i live on the 3rd story so i gotta take the wheel off and drag it alll the way up there, then back down.. lol|

|spanky||i think that thing is kinda cool looking! but holy cow would that get old quick. i figure my 37" tire and steel wheel weigh in about 100 lbs. i dread having to remove a tire when i am working on something. let alone having to lift that weight just to get into the tailgate! screw that!|

|Triple88a||2x, lifting the 35 every time you close your tailgate isnt fun..|

|Jerry Bransford||Either of those two carriers would get VERY old VERY quick after the owner lifts the tire back into position a few times after needing to open the tail gate.|

I have a cheap solution, It is what I am going to due when I get my 33's or
35's. Take the back seat out of you jeep and put the spare on the bed, a 35 inch tire should fit no problem I measured it today. YOu can even secure it with a bike lock to the floor!
Just a suggestion I think I am going to save my money as well!
I wont this

|Jerry Bransford||There's no way you're going to make the stock rear bumper even close to being strong enough for a 30" tire let alone a 33" tire. There's no cheap way to do it without installing a MUCH beefier bumper or going with a swing-out carrier like from Off-Road Fabricators that doesn't use the bumper at all but it's not cheap either.|

Swing away tire carrier
hey, i was thinking about making my own swing away spare tire carrier because i was told in another thread that the weight of a 33x12.50 tire on a steel wheel will cause my tailgate to sag. my questions are, can i put it on my stock rear bumper or will the weight of the tire be too much for the 1/8" steel to handle? is there any way to make the bumper strong enough without buying a new bumper? anone have any pictures of how to make a tire carrier or any advise at all? i don't want to buy a new bumper cause i don't really want to spend that kind of money right now. i'm a poor college student working part time, so i don't have alot of money to throw into that. thanks alot for any help or advise.
