Bolts to your existing factory spare tire mount and relocates the tire two inches up and out. Features 5x4.5 inch and 5x5.5 inch wheel bolt patterns and tough powder coated black textured finish. Caution: The tailgates on 07-12 Wrangler models are not designed to hold extra large tires. Therefore, do not use a tire larger than a 33x12.50 inch or equivalent tire with this spacer. If you want to carry a larger tire, we recommend using the XHD Rear Bumper with Tire Carrier.
I do not understand how this works? How is it mounted? Does not have a swing arm per se. CJ7 rear compartment door drops down...not side to side...where does tire go when door drops down? 78 CJ 7 Thx

Hi Mike, This Rugged Ridge Tire Carrier Spacer mounts to the tailgate of the a CJ or Wrangler. It is a one piece design, does not affect the bumper or tailgate hinge. If you drop the tailgate down on the CJ the spare would go with it, thanks for your inquiry.
