Thanks
I think I remember seeing that it weighs 170 or so I'm looking at getting it next yr. post up some pics during and after the instal if you do it yourself.

Lowerumble Nice! I really like the "road warrior" look of that tire carrier. The only issue I could really see with it is the additional weight that it will add to the rear of the rig. Not really the place that you want alot of weight. For sure update when you get it!

MudRunner Nice! Be sure to update with pics! That Jeep will be BADA$$! Congratz on the purchase!

jeep4l1fe thanks for the help...i decided to buy one and a pounder front bumper!

MudRunner From what I've seen:
-They are super-durable, designed for 42" tires racing over the desert and rock crawling
-They are not terribly convenient if you want to open your tailgate a lot, using Johnny Joints and two pins which must be removed to open the carrier
-You need to run the EVO corners to use the tire carrier as that is what they mount to, which requires some drilling and cutting to install
-Its expensive at around $1500, but that is comparative to other high quality bumper/tire carrier combos
-It looks BA
That's all I know, I was looking into it as well but decided against it just because it would be too hard for me to install in my driveway (I don't like paying for labor and I don't like drilling into the tub)
Here is a link to an install: EVO Tire Carrier install! FINALLY! - JKowners.com : Jeep Wrangler JK Forum
