If you have installed larger tires on your rig then a matching spare tire is a must. The problem comes when you try to bolt that new monster tire/wheel combo on your factory spare tire mount. Rugged Ridge has the answer with the HD Tire carrier Mount. The HD Tire Carrier Mount is constructed of heavy 1/4 inch steel plate and mounts to the tailgate. The tire is relocated two inches out from the old mount for larger tire clearance (Maximum tire size=35 inch).
