Just throwing it out there

Just obvious info DO NOT run any tire larger than a 33" on those stupid extensions. I had a 315/35" on a 16x8 and every little bump felt like my tailgate was about to throw in the towel.

Im now actually happier as a two seater jeep with my 315 strapped in the back...only down fall is now my jeep smells like a tire shop. For the time being its just fine.

Any recommendations for a swing-a-way that wont break the bank?

I have a 120 lbs 37" on the oem carrier.
No problem yet and it's been 1+ year.
I do have a "Tire support" to take the weight off the carrier...

i have the exact same tires..u dont need a spacer to fit it on the tailgate. put the tire on the carrier with the tailgate open. a carrier would be better but for now(actually over the past year) it works and sits nicely on the bumper..

Shittybuilt has the most reasonably price tire carrier/bumper, but it's made in China. You can get one of those if you want a commie JK that the bumper was welded together by 10 year olds working their 16th hour of the day.

The rancho unit is very cheap, in all ways from what I hear, but it will hold your spare.

I have the Rancho unit myself. Not a cheaply made as some would like you to believe. It is a matter of getting what you pay for though, I paid for a swing out tire carrier and that is what I got nothing more. I have had it for well over a year now and it has held up quite well, even balanced the JK on it once or twice.

What about the Smittybuilt or Bestop carrier? They are relatively inexpensive and allow you to mount a 35" tire on the tailgate.

Love you brother and you will always be my hero!

x2 - 100lbs worth of 35+ wheel with 3.75" backspacing. Plus I have a hi-lift bolted on there too. So there's another what... 30-40? What does a hi-lift weight?

Anyway, I have backed into trees a few times, tearing the hi-lift off. I wheel it hard, heavy on the skinny pedal, beat the heck out of it... no problems with the carrier or tailgate.
