Comments about Rugged Ridge HD Tire Carrier Mount:

the original, 11 year old, carrier had cracked across the top and had many small cracks at the bottom. if this carrier ever cracks it will be sometime after the rest of the jeep falls apart. heavy, solid, a bit pricy.

  • Q:

    I have a 1997 TJ Jeep Wrangler. My question is "What are the bolt pattern holes on the tire carrier. The bolts on the tailgate of my jeep are 8" on center right to left and 11" on center top to bottom. Will I have to drill out a new hole pattern on the Rugged Ridge tire carrier?

      This tire carrier from Rugged Ridge is set for the TJ 5x4.5 bolt pattern. If it fits on your jeep at one of the corners, it will fit on the Rugged Ridge tire carrier. Hope this helps with you peace of mind.
