Jeep TJ/LJ Swing Out Rear Tire Carrier - Aluminum

  • Product Description

    This is the GenRight "Swing Out" rear tire carrier for the Jeep TJ or Jeep LJ.

    This particular tire carrier is constructed of Aluminum tubing. In line with our other high quality products that allow you to keep your rear seat (or rear cargo area), this tube style tire carrier is made with Heavy Duty 1-3/4" diameter x .188" wall Aluminum tubing. The result is a cutting edge tire carrier fits tight to the rear of the vehicle (only sticks back 15-1/2" off the tailgate!) for the best possible departure angle.

    This is also a great rattle free way to hold a 33” to 42" spare tire that will not rip apart the back of your Jeep! Combine that with easy access by one person to change up to a 42" tire and you have a perfect choice for a trail rig with big tires.

    This Rear Carrier includes:

    • 1/4" thick mounting brackets.
    • A beefy "T" Handle that has a heavy duty ACME thread for long term durability.
    • A "fish" wire is pre-run through the carrier frame for a license plate and 3rd brake light(s).
    • Greasable urethane bushings isolate each of the 4 mounting points to eliminate rattles!
    • All necessary Grade 8 mounting hardware.
    • Mounting brackets can provide up to 1/2" of adjustment to accommodate for weight of tire.

    Other Features:

    • The carrier cage is 100% TIG welded (as pictured)!
    • Design makes it easy to get into Jeeps tailgate.
    • Easily fits up to 42" diameter x 14.50" wide tires.
    • Super light weight, entire assembly only weighs 25lbs!
    • Improves departure angle.
    • Unique design fits any bolt pattern and any offset wheel.
    • Relocates the rear license plate to the center.
    • Upper mounts are adjustable so you can make the pins easy to remove after everything settles.
    • Upper pins are self locking so they won't fall out.
    • Works with factory hard or soft tops.
    • This tire carrier is made to carry a 160lb tire & wheel.
    • DO NOT over load this carrier with gas cans or other heavy items or it will damage the jeep or carrier.


    • Will NOT work with factory tail lights! Please use LED-1100 or LED-MBTAIL tail lights.
    • We recommend running Corner Guards when installing this tire carrier to help support the extra weight on the tub.
    • Sold Un-painted and requires some finish work before painting (if desired).
    • This product should be fully installed BEFORE painting and then removed for paint or powder coating.
    • We offer a matching rear bumper "plate" RTC-3520
    • A matching front bumper / stinger is also available (steel FBB-2105 or aluminum FBB-2145 & steel FBB-2100 or aluminum FBB-2110).
    • This tire carrier is also available in a less expensive Steel version (RTC-3500).
    • Sorry, this carrier will NOT work on the Jeep YJ or CJ, as the lower mount goes right where the gas filler is!

    1. Well engineered and works wonderfully

      I picked this up for my 97 TJ. Although I feel the instructions could use a bit of work it was pretty simple to install and works amazingly. Well worth its price point. Not to mention how good it looked even with a 33 in it. on Jul 12th 2021

    2. The best tire carrier I have used!

      I have used 4 different tire carrier option on my jeep in the past. This is by far the best tire carrier I have ever bought. I wish, I had just gotten this to begin with. The aluminum version is super strong without adding additional unneeded weight to the rear of the Jeep. One of my favorite jeep upgrades I have done to date. on Apr 9th 2020

    3. The only option

      I went through 2 other brand tire carriers before finally spending the money on the GenRight one. I should have bought this one to begin with and just been done with it. FINALLY ZERO RATTLE! The fit and finish is crazy impressive. Worth every penny. on Nov 5th 2019
