|Triple88a||as much as i like the tire out back, i'm afraid of it getting cough somewhere since its like an anchor in trailville.|

heres my 33 on stock carrier. My tailgate is starting to bend on the top and the upper hinge is going to hell. It also drops when I open it. Save for a carrier.

|orange05tj||No. Thats only if your using stock rims with wider tire. I have one laying in my basement and when I get around to it, its going in the garbage. It still adds the weight on the tailgate.|

My spare 33" just rests on my bumper which helps to take the load. I have not had any problems with my tail gate yet.

I've seen a lot of people rock a 33 on the back, you can run a 33 in the stock location, depending on the width of the tire and offset of the wheel you may have to get a bracket. It is a much better idea to get a new rear bumper/tire carrier, there not real cheap but most of them have options like tow hooks which never hurt.
I'm actually looking for a real nice one myself, if anyone personally owns one and likes it or dislikes it let us know which one and why.
Here's a link to a tire carrier shootout, it's worth taking a look at: http://www.jpmagazine.com/techarticl...ut/index1.html

|Triple88a||most tire carriers come as a bumper/carrier combo and they run from about 400 together and up.|

|jtalar||depending on what configuration you want, are you eventually going to replace the rear bumper? Hi-lift jack mount? jerry cans? If you just want a oversize rear tire carrier, your looking at anywhere between $200-400 depending on the quality|

|Jkwillis15||How much would it cost for me to buy a larger tire carrier?|
|11-24-2008 04:37 PM|
|jtalar||The stock carrier is too weak for a 33" tire, I have seen ALOT of people do it though as it will fit, however like i said it is too weak, i would hate to be the guy who mounted a 33" tire on the stock carrier and soon after watch it bounce down the freeway from my rearview mirror, but that's just my opinion.|

Spare tire carrier
Im eventually going to get 33's to go on my wrangler. I want the spare tire to match all the others but ive heard that the stock spare tire carrier can only hold up to a certain size. Can it hold 33's or is that too large.
