Tire carrier

WHen I upgrade to 33's, will I have to get a new tire rack? I just looked at the OR fab carrier on offroad.com's jeep page, and looks a bit more than I want to get into. I also like the third light on top of the tire. Anyone know the largest size tire that would go on the OEM Rack. I think if I ever had to use it, my stock tire, or a 31 would be fine to just drive home or what not. I also have fix a flat on hand. Just not sure about ripping crap off my TJ just yet

Give me some fresh air, and give me that farm, give me some time with you in my arms, cause I'm gonna feed my soul, where the black top ends...

Re: Tire carrier

The 31" is the largest that will fit, provided you remove the bump stops on the tailgate. Our 31" BFG just squeaks by the tail light on the stock 8" rims.

Re: Tire carrier

How aboot a YJ?
I'm getting new tires, aready have 33's, but I'm still running a stock spare (Knock on wood)

Do you think insurance will cover the carb if it some how "teleports" behind the tires of a 350 with dualies?

I mounted my 33 on the stock carrier, took about a month before the tailgate got slammed and it bent.Plan on building one, or if you have the money buy one

Re: Tire carrier

well. i actually took my time with it.. i drew it all out full sized on the dry erase board at work, getting all the dimensions down and everything. then i took pics of the plans with the digital camera and printed them out..so i guess that was one day. it took another day to go get steel and cut it all to the correct lengths, and another to weld it together. then it took a couple months till i got around to ordering the hing and latch...but only a few hours to get it all together once al the parts were here..
