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
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.
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.
