Clear up to a 35 inch tire without the need of a tire carrier with the Tire Relocation Bracket from Smittybilt.Manufactured out of 1/4 inch plate. Installs directly to OE tire points. Finished in our Signature Series Two Stage Matte Black Finish Powdercoat.
I have 31x10.5 15 tires on 8" mags. Too big for the stock mount. This bracket bolted right on with no problems. Once I figured out which tire height I wanted the studs at. Screwed in the studs, set the tire on and tightened her up. Perfect, just under the 3rd brake light and plenty of space from the tailgate. Mount is secure and solid. No noise, no slop. Tire doesn't move at all. Exactly what I was looking for. Multiple applications so I can put it on other tire mounts too if need be. Installed in 15 minutes with no trouble and no hurry. Even a city girl can do it:)
I purchased this bracket only because I can not afford to drop a 300 bucks on a tire carrier right now. This bracket was the perfect short term fix. It is solid, well made, and easy to install. It puts a lot of weight on the door so I hoping that I can upgrade next year but at least I have piece of mind that I have a spare the same size as my tires in case I have a flat.
Took about 15 mins to install and works great. Decided to go this route vs a whole new reinforced carrier. Very happy with the product.
Are the wheel bolts included with the relocation bracket, or are they required to be purchased separately? Also, is there enough adjustment with the slotted holes to fit all 3 bolt patterns that Jeep used from 1976-2013 that the brackets says it works with?

Hello! Yes, the Smittybilt Spare Tire Relocation Bracket does fit all 3 wheel bolt patterns. The bracket comes with the 3 wheel studs that hold the tire on. You have to use the wheel lug nuts you have or buy new ones. You also get 3 lock washers and 3 lock nuts to hold the bracket to the factory tire carrier. Thanks!
