The Smittybilt SRC Oversize Tire Carrier is the most economical way to mount an oversized tire onto your Jeep Wrangler JK.
Product didn't come with instructions, found them online to clarify a few things. Install was pretty smooth, had already extended the brake light harness. Sturdy and it opens and closes smoothly.
Great idea behind the design of the product. The directions have no information in regards to installing the third brake light. Directions are poor at best. Gate does drop a little after opening. Time will tell how long it will stay true,
I saw the reviews on this saying it would not fit an oversized tire. I told the salesperson at the counter and he said this was a newer version. When I went to install the tire carrier today the first thing I noticed is there were no instructions provided. While trying to assemble several of the holes would not line up, the 3rd brake light bracket holes would not line up and I had to cut the bottom of the bracket off, the hardware was poor quality and there is no extension provided for the tail light connection, I will have to splice in one myself.
HI does the Pivot HD Tire carrier come with replacement hinges or do you use the stock hinge? I'm concerned about the weight over time & use against the hinges. Thinking about this unit versus the AEV Tire carrier.. Thoughts?
Asked by Brad from on
Hi Brad, This Smittybilt Pivot Heavy-Duty Oversize Tire Carrier is designed to carry heavy, oversize spares and it does not create stress on the hinges since it comes with a hardened hinge pin. Great question, thanks for your interest.

Does this tire carrier have a CB antenna mount built into it? If not, what CB antenna mounts will work with this tire carrier?
Asked by Erick from on
Hey Erick, the Smittybilt Pivot Heavy-Duty Oversize Tire Carrier does not have a antenna mount built in. You would be able to run any of the brackets that mount behind the rear light. Thanks for your question.
