dawhitesJKU the daystars are a pain to put in and a pain to take out (no pun intended). I ripped the whole thing off while it was still attached and had to use superglue to reattach the foam piece. I also have some gnarly marks using a flathead trying to pry it in w/ wd40 and i still managed to scratch the tailgate. I shouldve sticked to the factory bumpstops w/ a pcv pipe attached.

I'm currently trying to decide what to do, I want the teraflex hinged tire carrier but am not sure if the bestop/smittybilt carrier would just be enough. If I get the hinge I would still need to get something to extend the bumpstop but the bestop carrier doesn't take any added stress off the tailgate... Any help would be appreciated.
with the hinge from teraflex you do not need the bumpstops; the hinge is the bumpstop.

kjeeper10 The Daystars are fine. They do need to be trimmed to fit. I broke a nipple off one and it still holds in there. 0 issues.

Sgobrecht I installed the bestop spare tire carrier with Nitto Terra's 305x70x17. The spare with rim weighs 85lbs. Purchased from 4wheelonline.com for $252. I had to wait for front and rear bumper package, and this holder was a good interim solution. Factory bump stops work fine. Took 30 minutes to install.
