This optional swing away tire carrier features a billet handle with a camlock system, adjustable tire mount and safety catch that will hold the swing away open while parked or positioned at an angle. The swing away tire carrier can be added to the bumper at any time.
Was looking at more durable carriers for my CJ and not finding any. Found this one for newer models, but upon looking at the way it mounted, I could adapt it to fit my CJ. The rear bumper on my Jeep was replaced by the previous owner by square steel tube, so I need to bolt on additional steel tubing to mount the carrier, replacing the recommended bumper install per the instructions. A little bit of fab work and welding and it was mounted. Since it was for a newer model and the bolt patters were different, I cut off and reused the stock CJ carrier mount flange and welded it to the carrier's bracket after removing the studs. Came out great and makes fitting the 33" spare a breeze.
The pivot shaft holes were misaligned. The tire swing would hit the bumper and not swing in all the way closed. I had to return it and get a different model.
'94 YJ Install. If you're installing on the SB XRC rear bumper, mount the hinge and latch brackets to the bumper loosely before installing the bumper or else it's a "B" to get it on there. You think SB would tell you that in the instructions or 4W Parts would tell you when you drop $2k with them but they don't.
does this product work on stock x10 anniversary Rubicon bumper or only on a smiittybilt bumper only?

Asked by I am me from Alberta on
Hello I, No, they are not designed to fit one another. Even with a welder and fabrication shop it still will not work.
