    Coming soon for the JL, here's a first look at our Stand Alone Tire Carrier prototype.

    We don't have all the details to share just yet, but we can tell you that we've re-invented this by utilizing access points unique to the JL to completely replace the factory hinges and tie this carrier directly into the sub-structure. This is going to be a BEEFY rock-solid solution for carrying really large tires.

    Thank you,

    Yes please. Im OK with my bumper but HD tire carriers require new bumper. Will this mount also allow for modular additions like Hi-Lift jacks or roto pax that kind of stuff?

    Is it really a spy shot if it's willingly posted by the manufacturer?

    Joking aside this looks perfect for what I want to do and will definitely be following for more details.

    Yes, the carrier comes with mounts for 2 RotopaX and we also will offer an optional hi-lift mount.

    Thank you,

    I love the integration of the hi-lift but not a fan of the rotopax angles or how they block the rear view

    Agree on the rotopax mounts - angle thing is unappealing to me at least. If you all are looking for feedback. What would be helpful and potentially revenue generating for you is to make a universal mounting system brackets that can mount on either side of the spare. Then create various attachment accessories to add things like Rotopax, shovels, jerry cans, powertanks, mini-propane tanks...... Perhaps in the spirt of Jeep, create bracket system that allows folks to mod their own mounts easily. Increase the utility value and versatility of the carrier.
