Full size spare WJ


New member
Hi all! I'd really like to carry a full size 265/75/r16 spare in/on my WJ, as I have an auto locker (Aussie) on the rear, and swapping a front wheel to the rear and putting the undersized spare on the front is an unappealing solution.


-It won't fit in the spare well
-The back compartment is already full of gear 24/7 (I like spontaneous trips)
-I would like to avoid a roof mounted spare for MPG and noise, however I already have a roof basket so it is a real possibility
-I carry a motorcycle on a hitch mounted carrier, so any rear mounted spare would have to work around that.

Thanks all! I've been thinking about this for weeks with no success...

There are complete rear bumpers with swing out carriers, and also a swing out carrier that mounts under the stock bumper cover.
The one that fits with the stock bumper, requires cutting the bumper cover.
A google search on "WJ Swing out tire carrier" will net you a lot of info.

Good luck! WJ is an awesome Jeep! :beer:
