    Aluminum is the best

    Posted by VeteranSuicideAwarenessJeep on Oct 1st 2020

    I absolutely love my Aluminum GR Swing out tire carrier. I am beyond impressed with the the amount of thought that went into this product, from the pre-drilled wiring hole for your 3rd brake light/license plate light to the stop lock; which has saved me several times off camber in Colorado. The quality of welds alone on this tire carrier make it worth the price to me, it’s a piece of art and once you’ve seen the GenRight quality you’ll see exactly what I’m talking about.

    Awesome Fit and Rattle Free!

    I love my GenRight tire carrier. Just got it painted and installed. It's a beast and has reduced my tailgate noise to nothing. I was referred to from a friend who has bought your products before. Glad I listened!

    Tire Carrier

    Posted by Mike on May 6th 2020

    Honestly the best tire carrier I have purchased yet. My stock tire carrier was starting to rattle the tailgate due to my tire size which was driving me insane. Finally pulled the trigger on this tire carrier since it bolts on to the body, definitely worth every penny. I work for a construction company, and everyone that comes across my Jeep complements how well the welds were preformed. Perfect quality product and customer service.

    I just finished up installing the GenRight tire carrier and would like to let you know how pleased I am with the over all quality and fit. Installation was actually quite simple.

    Huge improvement

    Posted by Austin L. on Apr 22nd 2020

    After going back and forth on different tire carriers I decided to give Genright a chance and I was not disappointed. Super easy install and a great look. Have had it installed for almost 2 years now and have not had any issues whatsoever and love the look it gives to the Jeep.

    "this won’t be my last GenRight order"

    Posted by Dave on Apr 13th 2020

    "I unfortunately have not got to install this yet, but I do like what I see with the workmanship. I am in manufacturing and much like a chef always judging food others make, I look at everything with a ‘can I make it better’ set of eyes. You’re aluminum gas tanks is what first turned me on to GenRight and then looking into videos on YouTube I liked what I saw both from the manufacturing side and form the Jeep side of things. The tire carrier has been sitting here on the shop floor and I have had several of our people that walk by stop and look at it and ask if I made it, and comment on how good the welds are! We have just over 75 people here with the whole range of manufacturing equipment but I’m the only Jeep guy here so these comments come from fellow welders, sheet metal and machinists who all know what they’re looking at when respect to manufacturing. So needless to say this won’t be my last GenRight order."

    Very Nice!

    The fit and finish on this carrier is excellent. No rattles and I won’t be worrying about rust. Their customer support has been just as awesome as the quality of this carrier, which is rare to find these days! Highly recommend!

    Super Nice Upgrade

    Posted by Nick Barkey on Jan 6th 2020

    Installed this since my previous tire carrier was starting to rust, not a GenRight, and shaved almost 70 lbs! Rear of my Jeep raised up an inch. Run this with a 40" Cooper tire and have zero issues. Lightweight, looks great, and was easy to install
