Spare tire holder capacity

Does anyone know if I will have any trouble down the road with a 33x12.50r15 duratrac mounted on the back? Just don't want to tear anything up. I searched other threads and couldn't find what I was looking for. Thanks in advance.

No you shouldn't. I have the same tire with MB72 rims and they are the same if not a little lighter in weight than the stock tire/rim. I would replace the rubber bumpers though to dampen vibration. If I remember correctly the stock ones aren't long enough to reach the new tire.

End Transmission. We now return you to your regularly scheduled program.

Too much weight for that little door. The hinges will suffer. Spend the money and get a new bumper. Or don't get big tires.

Standard Sahara 18" rim + Bridgestone Dueler = 67 lbs

MB72 15x8 rim = 20 lbs
33x12.5x15 Duratrac = 49 lbs

You're fine. For the record, the manual says that the maximum weight hung on the tailgate including the spare wheel should not exceed 50 lbs, then they hang a 67 lbs spare on it.
Hold my beer and watch this.......
