Agreed. Easy open, easy shut.The JK carrier is considerably better than the TJ. I was worried about leaning on my TJ one the wrong way. I have my 35" with an extension bracket and all seems fine. The only thing I watch out for is that the gate doesn't swing out. It'd be allot of force with the momentum of that big tire.
Dont go shooting holes in the excuse I am running on my wife for my bumper and tire carrier combo!Been running a 37" with a Warrior relocation bracket on mine for over a year with zero issues.
I just wanted to chime in a bit about spacers and large tires on the Carriers.
We've noticed really mixed results. Like Rotorhead, we've had some people run with no issues at all. Other's we've had put a 35 on and in a week split the tailgate at the seams. Then we've had people run a 37" tire and not have an issue.
In the end we decided to start requiring a tailgate overlay panel to be installed with anything larger than a 33" tire for the warranty to be valid, and even released an overlay without a center section and with all the bumper and wiring cutouts just for those folks.
Basically, just keep a close eye on whatever you bolt up. Keep an eye on your carrier and your tailgate.
