"Our TJ/YJ Rear Bumper Swingout Tire Carrier is a must have if you're running oversize tires. The TJ & YJ"s tailgate might hold the weight of an oversize tire for a while, but it will begin to sag over time. Our Swingout Tire Carrier is heavy duty and opens and closes with the stock tailgate. Finally, there is no cumbersome latch or secondary operation to open your Swingout Tire Carrier. Simply open your tailgate latch and the tire carrier will swing open with it. The tire carrier installs directly to our specially designed Rear Bumper (250.200.110) and features all of the following: Solid Steel Tube Construction (Thick .120 inch Wall 2 inchx4 inch Rectangle Steel Tubing), Heavy Duty 1-1/2 inch Solid Steel Greaseable Machined Pivot Pin that is inserted through an extra thick � inch Wall DOM Steel Tube, Fully Adjustable Sliding Tire Mount for various width tires and wheels (No Drilling Necessary unlike other competitor models), Pre-Cut Hole for mounting our 2 inch LED Third Brake Light (sold separately), Plastic Machined Alignment Block used to isolate any rattle noise and vibration between the Tire Carrier and the Tailgate. The tire carrier will hold up to 37 inch Tire and all the necessary Grade 8 & Grade 5 mounting hardware is included. All Tire Carriers receive a thorough zinc phosphate rinse and cleaning, then are E-Coated and Powder Coated with an easy to clean light black texture. The textured powder coat matches the texture on the stock black fender flares almost perfectly. Completely Bolt on, No Drilling Necessary. Image is for illustrative purposes only. When purchased you will only receive the tire carrier, the bumper is sold separately."
Quality product. Trial and error installation. Confusing instructions which leads to frustration. However, it doesn't take long to figure things out. Also, I was missing the rubber bumper. I contacted Hyline and they promptly mailed one out. Gusseting could have been added to each end to prevent mud, etc. build-up inside bumper. Overall, I'm pleased.
What feedback have you received from customer's on this tire carrier? I like that it works together with the tailgate. I am running 33s and can't decide on which bumper and tire carrier combo I want to use. Do you have any suggestions? It's on a 2003 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon.

Bill, the Hyline Offroad Swingout Tire Carrier Assembly makes a very nice product. This particular tire carrier assembly will hold up to a 37", which is a very nice option for you to hold your 33- with room to upgrade later down the road!
