Best spare tire swing bracket

Hey all, just put my lift on my jeep, and am also picking up my wheels/tires today. I am nervous my 35" tire is not going to fit on my spare tire mount on the back. Wanting some input on a good reliable and also not breaking the bank swinging spare tire bracket. Looking forward to hearing what you all have to say! Have a great Thanksgiving!

I like my AEV tire carrier... it mounts to the frame, opens and closes with the rear gate and it can work with most bumpers.

Nothing against the teraflex but when you look at the cost it just doesn't make sense to me.

opinions are like a$$holes, everyone has one and some stink

Teraflex is light in weight and allows you to open the tailgate just like stock.

My next jeep will have the teraflex. Open rear like stock and will last longer that a bumper carrier. I wore out my bumper mount carrier just driving around and had to soon rebuild it. One handed operation for the teraflex style. It makes a lot of sense to me.

It will make the tires look wider than they are. I have even seen people put that width tire on a 15x8. You need to get the bracket that best suits you for functionality and style.
Wow, that ^^^ doesn't say shit that's remotely useful or pertinent to this thread. I smell

By any chance , did you join JKO just to get traffic to the vehicle website linked in your signature?
