Constructed of heavy tubular steel, this one-of-a-kind tire carrier is black powder coated for corrosion resistance. It mounts to the body with backing plates and holds up to a 35 tire weighing approximately 200 pounds. The tire carrier swings away with the tailgate for easy access to the rear of your Jeep.



Overall this is a very good product. Only 1 installation issue: Instructions state the 'jack nuts' to install in holes that you drill are 1/4-20. They supply 1/4-20 bolts. But they send you are metric 'jack nuts'. Following the instructions, I trashed one of the 'jack nuts' before I realized this. I called 4WD, they called Bestop. I was told they DO NOT stock that part, needs to come from China. After more than 2 weeks, I have still not recieved the promised replacement. My installation is still NOT complete! Bestop needs to change the instructions to state that the 'jack nuts' are metric AND supply metric bolts.

Will it hold the wheel plus 200 lbs? "Accommodates a tire up to 35" and 200 pounds". I have a stock rim with 31" tire. I wanted to add a carrier around the wheel if possible.

Hi Cheeser The HighRock 4x4 Oversize Tire Carrier in Black Powder Coat Finish will hold a total of 200 pounds including the tire and wheel so you might only be able to add 60 or 80 pounds after the tire and wheel. Thanks

Will this carrier work with ay bumper?

Asked by Raiderbrad10 from Toronto, Canada on

Hello, This tire carrier is designed to be a stand-alone part, and should work with any rear bumper, provided the bumper does not interfere with the opening path of the tire carrier. Unfortunately there are so many bumpers available, we can't guarantee exact fitment with all bumpers. So far we haven't heard of any issues with this carrier and other manufacturers bumpers, but we want to make sure you are aware it may not be compatible.

Any chance this product would work with a 37" x 12" tire? On alum 15" x 11" rims. We are under the 200 LB. limit. Thanks.

Asked by why j from omaha ne on

The Bestop tire carrier doesn't have enough adjustment in it for the height of the 37" tire it will hit the bumper.
