large spare

I just brought my first jeep. it 2000, jeep wrangler automatic. I went to the mount the spare on to the mounting system. The problem is that the spare is to big. The tire is hitting the bumper and won't fit under the third brake light also. I have no idea on what to buy to fix it.

Sounds like you might need to buy an aftermarket tire carrier that will accommodate larger diameter tires. There are numerous options out there, some reasonable some high $$$. Your actual tire size will determine if some of the lower priced carriers will work for you. Check out any of the vendor websites you can find on this site. That will get you started on understanding what you should be looking for.

Could go with a reinforced tire carrier like the Exogate, it would solve your problem. A cheaper route would be a Rugged Ridge HD tire carrier, depending on the weight of the tire it could cause long term harm to the stock hinges but would route the tire out and up out of the way.
