Question JK Tire Carrier on a TJ

I have seen a few done but I like the Warn bumpers a bit better and they match since I have one on the front. Think there's any market for these?

If I still had my LJ I would be going nuts right now. Looks great. Only problem is its set up for JK bolt pattern. How did you fix that issue?

JK axles? You could just redrill the tire carrier for the new bolt pattern.

There are two bolt patterns in the tire carrier, JK and TJ, just press the studs out and press them in the other holes. We were always planning on getting around to the TJ...just have had too much on our plate.

Strange the instructions said 5ON5 and 5 on 5.5...it was 3am BTW so I could be wrong

Jason

EDIT here

Quote:
6. The wheel mount has studs pressed in for a 5 on 5” bolt pattern, if custom axles are used
with a 5 on 5.5” bolt pattern, the studs will need to be pressed out and pressed into the
holes provided.

I didn't want to screw up the mounting plate. I already ordered the adapters...

where you able to get it to swing out with the tail gate? or is it independent of it. I have seen a couple conversions with the jeep bumper. this looks nice. and have been toying with the idea of how to do something similar. I would really like it to hing and swing with the tail gate.

looks nice.

Its just an error in spindle placement. If its too far left it hits the hinges and does not open all the way! Mine is connected to the tailgate that was one of my main reasons for the conversion.

More to follow after the TDS Safari....
