Has opening your rear tailgate become a burden since you added a swing out tire carrier? Has it become easier to crawl over the rear seat, to grab your gear, than hassling with the tire carrier? The Rugged Ridge Tire Carrier Linkage Kit eliminates the issue and makes accessing the cargo area quick and painless. Once installed the linkage mates the tire carrier to the tailgate , so both open in a single fluid movement. The Tire Carrier Linkage is designed to work with Rugged Ridge XHD, RRC and Rock Crawling rear bumpers and tire carriers, but will also work with most other aftermarket tire carriers. No drilling is required to mount the linkage to the tailgate, but some minor drilling is required to mount the linkage to the tire carrier. Will not work with body lift.
