Add a tire carrier to your new Smittybilt Gen2 XRC Bumper to get bigger spare tires on your Jeep. This new tire carrier design bolts directly to the new XRC Bumpers
I went with everything Smittybuilt with the hopes that everything worked well together. I liked the design of this carrier because, 1st it swings with the rear door (great feature). 2nd I wanted to be able to mount two gas cans (Totopax) behind the spare as advertised. No such luck on item 2! I've done a bunch of work to finally get two cans mounted behind the tire then to realize that the steel provided by the manuf. is not straight. back to drawing board for fabricating mounts. (drives me crazy when things are not straight) also tried to contact Smittybuilt to find out how they might have been able to get a rotopax to mount to the their setup. No response to emails or voicemail. I have just outfitted a new JK with pretty much everything they sell and for the money I have invested you would think customer service would want to keep me happy. Nope! I like all of the XRC product designs but because of the lack of support from Smittybuilt, i'm done with them
It looks great and seems to be heavy duty.
Eventually mounted up very well. Would have been easier if I'd thrown the instructions out the window on the way home from picking up the bumper/carrier. Lay out all the parts, try to distinguish what the part numbers are, and maybe label them through elimination. If you purchase this w the bumper, mount the pivot bracket, drill out the bottom hole, set a nut plate, temporarily remove pivot pin bracket, and THEN mount the bumper. Some of the steps are in poor order, especially if mounting the tire carrier as well. Leave everything loose until it's time to line up the tailgate bracket to the bumper.
Will this bumper work with a '97 TJ, If not is there anything similar for the TJ?

Hi Tris, This Smittybilt XRC AtlasTire Carrier is a spare tire carrier, not a bumper. If it's the bumper and carrier you're looking for, we've got the the correct ones for your '97 TJ. Here they are and thanks for your inquiry! http://www.4wd.com/Jeep-Bumpers-Jeep-Tire-Carriers/Smittybilt-Rear-XRC-Tire-Carrier-Bumper-Black-76653.aspx?t_c=64&t_s=26&t_pt=3486&t_pn=S%2fB76653 http://www.4wd.com/Jeep-Bumpers-Jeep-Tire-Carriers/Smittybilt-XRC-Tire-Carrier-76654.aspx?t_c=64&t_s=26&t_pt=3902&t_pn=S%2fB76654

description says there is jack mount, is additional bracket needed? works with hi-lift jack?
Asked by jeepin' joe jackson jr from on
Hi jeepin' joe jackson jr, Thiks Smittybilt XRC/SRC Gen2 Bolt-On Tire Carrier does indeed come with the jack mount for the hi-lift, no separate bracket is necessary. Keep in mind this carrier fits the Smittybilt bumper 76858.
