Crawler Concepts Ultra Series Body Mounted Tire Carrier installation requires some cutting. The tire remains close to the Jeep and opens with the rear tailgate. It feels very solid and installed easily. I’m pleased with my purchase and would recommend this product.
The oem hinge mounting plate is replaced by a much stronger unit that allows the new tire carrier to pivot from a wider point. The design and craftsmanship of the kit was impressive. Even the provided hardware was really nice.
The kit also comes with a new tramp stamp that secured the carrier against the gate when closed.
It looks a little weird without a tire on the carrier because it’s at a slight angle.
Overall I’m very pleased. It is very secure, doesn’t rattle and will handle the 37 I plan to carry in the near future.
I also relocated my third brake light and license place with off-road only’ combo led kit. The license plate bracket was included with the tire carrier. The wiring was really easy and taps into the passenger side rear brake light assembly.
