I got the smittybilt hd tire carrier. It’s very adjustable and has the option for a hi lift jack holder, which you will need after your lift. The quality is good and easy to install. It bolts to the frame and I likes that better than the reinforcement types.Yes!! I agree.
What setup do you have for your spare tire? Mine sits really far off the tailgate.
A pro tip is to set the rim on a bucket. Feel free to give me a holler if you run into issues with everything, I’ll try to help out anyway I can. Washer trick looked like it worked out thoughSo I’ve already run into issues lol...
Beadlocks are no joke! Spent most of the day today on them and only got 2 done. I don’t know if it’s the wheels I got or the tires or maybe it’s just normal, but I was fighting to get the front bead set before putting the beadlock ring on. I felt like I needed eight arms to hold all around so the bead wouldn’t pop out on one side when I got close to the end. I got my wife to help me with the first one but she quit after that. After getting heated and having a few choice words on the second one, I decided to run to Lowe’s and look for some washers to possibly hold the bead down. This worked like a charm. Just stacked some washers and dropped in a couple bolts and it held the bead down pretty well. Here’s some pics if anyone is attempting Beadlocks.
Thanks for the pro tip. I used a 5 gallon bucket and some large clamps and that bead still didn’t want to set.A pro tip is to set the rim on a bucket.

Nice choice! Post pics when you get them installed. I’m curious how it will look with the -15 mm offset.Really nice build. I have the same black coverts in -15 mm. My tires are coming in tomorrow and Clayton off-road 2.5 is in garage waiting. I’m gonna use you washer trick!
Thanks for the compliments. I’ll hopefully be adding to the build soon. Had to put a pause on it due to work.Just needed to add to the compliments this is a great thread. Your posts are interesting and helpful. Great developments
