    Comments about Smittybilt Oversized Tire Carrier:

    I bought this for my wife's 12 JK. She has a pretty heavy wheel and tire combo (120lb). The stock carrier wasn't up to the task of supporting the weight. This carrier pulls the tire closer to the body and helps keep the tire from shaking up and down. Been pretty pleased with it so far. My only issue was that the instructions in the box were incomplete. I had to go to the smittybilt site to get the full direction.

        Comments about Smittybilt Oversized Tire Carrier:

        I wasn't positive this was the idea way to go for my 35" spare. But since I didn't want a swing out tire carrier I thought I would give it a try. After the install, which was very easy and only reason for 2 stars, I noticed it looked like it would damage the 3 lug nut holes in my wheel where the bracket tightened down on the wheel. And it did. I called Smittybilt to be told some guys find rubber pieces to use to protect the wheels. So when I asked if it was designed to be that way I was told YES! I asked what I need to go get and was told I will have to go to hardware store and look for things to experment with. Really? That is tech support? How hard would it be for a company as large as Smittybilt to design and include 3 rubber bushings to protect the wheel? Or at very minimum put a warning in the install instructions that this could happen. I will have to think real hard before I buy another Smittybilt product.

            Comments about Smittybilt Oversized Tire Carrier:

            This carrier is well priced, easy to install, and does what it needs too. I dont consider it a long term solution however. The entire weight of the spare and the carrier is being held by the tailgate. It does carry the tire very close to the tailgate and there are no rattles. I dont see any issues with it in the next year or two.
