Hi George There is a hole and a notch on the plate that the lock would go through on the Oversized Tire Carrier. Thanks

Answered by LWiff ext 4804 from laurel md. on

I recently bought a used 2012 2-door JKR on 37x12.5R17 tires that did not have a tire carrier or a spare tire when I bought it. It does have the mounting bolts in place. It has a stretched 4" suspension lift, and the rear frame crossmember has been modified to more closely mount a plain rock crawling bumper that has no options for mounting a tire carrier spindle, nor does it have a hitch receiver. My two questions are: 1. Will this carrier work for me to mount a spare when I don't have the original tire carrier? 2. Are this carrier and the tailgate robust enough to endure 4-wheeling with a 120-pound 37" tire on the tailgate, or would I be better considering a replacement bumper with a bumper-mounted tire carrier? Thanks!

Rock Doc, the Smittybilt Oversized Tire Carrier will hold a 37" tire just fine. However a 37 will be the max you can put on it. I would feel safer with you using one like this: to hold a 37" tire. It's a much better design and will hold the tire more securely. Hope this helps!

Will this carrier work with my 2014 JK Rubicon factory rim with 35" tire on it?

Asked by Silverback from Spotsylvania, VA on

Silverback, the Smittybilt Oversized Tire Carrier does not work with factory wheels. If you buy aftermarket wheels, then this will work just fine with 35's. Thanks for the question!
