33x12.5x15 spare fit?

Ordered my new duratracs the other day for my JKU and for some reason just had a mini panic attack wondering if the tire will fit on the spare carrier.

Anyone with these know if some sort of mod is required or should I be ok? I get them installed this week so hopefully it'll fit!

It will fit, but you will need to get some new bumpstops for the tailgate. MTH recently posted a pic of how his Duratracs and Black Rock 909 setup needs the bumpstops. Seems like you went with MB72S, which have less backspacing that the 909s (3.75 vs 4.0), so they will stick away from the gate even further.

The more I read, the more I figured that was going to be the case. Just ordered them though... As always, thanks for the feedback 4fit
