This Aluminum Swing-Out Rear Tire Carrier for the Jeep Wrangler JL is constructed from 6061-T6 Aluminum Alloy.

The sleek design opens and closes effortlessly (see video), and has secure 4-point urethane mounting to make it completely rattle-free.

The GenRight Off Road Swing-Out Tire Carrier is completely independent of the rear bumper, so it can be used with any brand rear bumper (including stock).


  • 1-3/4" diameter x .188" thick wall 6061-T6 Aluminum Alloy tubing.

  • Fits any bolt pattern or offset wheels (stock wheels can be used by running backwards in the carrier).
  • Corrosion-resistant materials require no paint (but can be painted or powder coated if you choose).
  • Fits tighter to the rear tailgate than any other brand rear tire carrier (only a total of 18" from the rear door).

    Great material. Great design with some minor flaws. I will buy it again for my other Jeep. There is nothing better on the market for tires 37” plus.

    JLU tire carrier

    Posted by Ken Z on May 28th 2021

    This is a very light and strong super simple design that I'm very happy with. The install was pretty easy but like any install, it takes a few hours. Mine was delivered missing some hardware and with one call to Keith the parts were received the next day. Buy this, its the best one for 40+ tires.

    Could Not be Happier

    Posted by Michael W. on Nov 23rd 2020

    I first heard of GenRight as I was researching parts for a previous Jeep build. I ended up with some other brand products on that build, but always regretted not going a tire carrier of this style. Since then, I decided to sell my JK and jump into a JL. This time I was going to do it right. Let me just say, I could not be happier with the GenRight tire carrier. I do all of my own work (won’t let anyone touch my Jeeps) and I can certainly appreciate quality hardware. These parts are absolutely top notch. The welds are beautiful; absolute work of art. I’m particularly happy with the strength of the parts. No movement at all when driving.

    These are the best! Extremely lightweight and easy to use. Very sturdy and it can accommodate a 40" tire with no issues.

    Lightweight and easy... I have to get in the back of my Jeep often for work and it's easy to get in the back of the Jeep. No squeaks or rattles even when wheeling. I love it and wouldn't use anything else.

    Love this tire carrier!

    Posted by Wes from Colorado on Oct 2nd 2018

    I ordered this tire carrier for my new JL in April of 2018. It installed very easily and it's quiet! I am running 37's and can move the tire up or down 3" for more visibility out the rear window, by moving the mounting bracket. I have bumped it out on the trail with no damage to the vehicle or tire carrier. Top quality!
