Need help mounting 31" spare
1 Attachment(s)
I am a newbie and need a suggestion as to how I mount a lager spare than the 215 spare I have on it. Is there an adapter I can get?

Mine does not need a spacer with my 33". You can buy mine if you like.

There is a lot of info on this forum about the larger tires being too heavy for the tailgate. My 31 X 10.5 X 15 on an 8" wheel fits on the factory spare mount without an adapter. It doesn't ride against the rubber blocks on the tailgate due to the offset on the wheel. I took the spare and the mount off and drive around locally without a spare tire. If I go wheeling I carry my spare on the roof rack. The lifted Jeep won't fit in the garage with the spare on the roof so I make sure to keep an eye on my tires. Your best bet is to save up for an aftermarket bumper with a spare tire bracket or a Highrock oversize swing away tire carrier. Good Luck, L.M.

It looks like he has an aftermarket bumper that sits out furthur than stock so that may be his limiting factor. They do sell an offset bracket that raises and moves out the spare. You can find it at many online stores.

Like I said, I don't need it so if you do need one I am sure I can help you out.
