How does that tailgate reinforcement work with that 37?

Here’s my wife’s JLU. I just walked out and took these pics. The rims I already owned and somehow they fit so I put 35 12.5s on. 2.5” lift. Spare tire relocate bracket.

I’ve been looking at rims and decided on black with a white bead lock (I have a black hardtop and thought it went eight he black and white look). But....after seeing these, I might have to get back on the chrome track. I really like them! Would you mind posting what they are/a link, etc?

I have the Mopar tailgate reinforcement plus RC extension bracket and run 37’s. Works great, very solid and no rattles after multiple wheeling trips. I even got the third brake light to clear the tire by extending the bracket. The tire clears the stock bumper as well, and I will say It is nice not to have to open a bumper-mounted carrier and then tailgate every time you want to access the back.

Hey I see you have the same problem I had with the 3rd brake light wire being too short and the rubber grommet not fitting back in. If you look at your photo, look at the grommet and look right above it. See that little hole/cutout? Pop the wire out the top of carrier (It takes some prying open so be careful) and now run it through that cutout. Now the grommet will have enough wire to pop back in like is should.

Aero sync: How far did you air down there? I am running stock rims and I know a narrower rim on a big 37” works well to keep the tire seated.
I was at 14PSI with no issues.

Good eye, and thank you!

I do about that, but have never run such large tires on stock rims. I know the combination will hold the bead better, but am wondering about how the tires will hold up.
