yeah just wanted input on this I saw a couple JKs without the spare tire on back I liked the way it looked....just wanted input from other Jeep Peeps...!!!!Mitchness said:This must be an aesthetics issue, since relocating it to the back takes up all your cargo/passenger room... which I thought was the point of the 4 door in the first place.
If you like the look, that's cool... But if you look at the carrier it is actually designed to handle a bigger tire, up to a 35 comfortably.xzy said:I just took my tire and carrier off yesterday because I've read larger tires than stock can wreck your tailgate over time. Since I have a new 2013 I don't want to take that chance. I've been looking at other tire carriers but I'm good with my spare in the back because I pulled the rear seats today
I also like the look with no tire on the back.
