Favorite tailgate plate (spare delete) vent cover?

What is your favorite or preferred tailgate plate (spare tire delete) vent cover?

Prefer something that will replace the factory louvered vent and use the factory spare tire bracket bolt holes.

Doesn't need to be one for a 3rd brake light, license plate or other accessories. I am installing a bumper mount tire carrier and need to cover the old spare tire location and, like said, prefer to replace the factory vent.

I see that the JKS includes button head bolts and plugs for the tire bumpers and wire harness which is nice. I think one of the Poison Spider versions includes the plugs.

I currently have the JKS vent cover plate. It is a solid piece and the bolts and plugs are nice and low profile.

Why not do a custom one?

I can't remember the shop that did mine. But I do know that CEE plasma can do custom ones.


Here's mine.

I do not have the tramp stamp. I did do a Poison Spyder license plate relocation to swing gate. They were one of the only ones out at the time and cheap.

I got the JKS also. The only other unit I considered was the GenRight. Both of their logo designs were the only ones I liked...

Just looked at the GenRight. It looks like a very good option as well. It comes with the corner license plate plug which I will need since I am relocating it to the tire carrier with the RockHard/ORO bracket and light.

I found a non-vendor advertising option that was just a plain plate with vents. If I couldn't find one without would grab an RCO special

Needs a good cleaning my cb antenna mount was rusting away.....
