I recently upgraded the tires on my Sport (on Moab wheels) to 295/70R17 and got the Smittybilt relo bracket.

After installing it I tighten the lugs but the bump stops compress and compress, it doesn’t feel like it’s really tightening up against the carrier. I’ve attached a picture (yes I see the grommet for the wiring is loose).

Are the stock bump stops simply too long for this setup?

I followed your lead and did a similar setup for my Mopar simulated beadlocks and 315/70/14 Ridge Grapplers.. thanks for the great idea!

I went and bought the supplies and did this tonight. Seems to work well. I went with plastic plugs rather than the stool style cap, but same approach. Thanks fat boy.

Looks great. Tell me more about the “plugs” and where I can purchase. I like the clean look!!!
