So which tire carrier is easiest to install that can hold a 37 inch tire?

Here's my LOD Bumper/Tire Carrier w/ 37 x 13.5" Cooper STT Pro mounted up. Backup cam works perfectly, backup sensors work even though they say they don't on dash info screen. They beep if someone is behind me every time, although my info screen (dash) says parking sensors are disabled on startup. Super robust bumper that I've bounced off rock ledges more than once to date. I've added the Jerry can mount, license plate relocate and will be adding trail rack at some point. I've also got two LED cubes ready to mount up but I've got to get the angle grinder out and cut holes in the steel plates first once I get a warm weekend. I will say that the Jerry can LOD recommends (forget the brand) fits perfectly but two other 5 gallon cans that I have do not.

Is anyone using the Deegan38 rear bumper and tire carrier? Anyone have any thoughts on it?

For the price, and design (I like that it has a latch), I have to at least consider it. It has some mixed reviews on Extreme Terrain but I think that could be attributed to user/installer error.

Not the greatest photos, but these were taken a few days ago.

Thank you. Is this as far back as it will go? Anyway to get it closer to the tailgate.
how far back it goes will depend on each individuals set up. I’ve got a 4.5” BS on my Fuel wheels so this is as far back as it will go for me.

Thank you for all the replies, and the thread. I have 3.5” backspacing and my concern is that the tire doesn’t hang out to far away from the tailgate.

One of the steps is actually measuring the total backspace (wheel and tire) and then applying that to your installation. My total backspace was 6" (4.5 from wheel and then another 1.5" from my tire).

3.5" should be easy to adjust for and will be closer to the tailgate. Those with more BS will appreciate the adjustability.

Does this tilt, so that the tire can be slanted up against a fastback hardtop?
If not, is anyone aware of a slanted tire carrier that keeps the camera and doesn't require a bumper change?

The SB HD Pivot does allow for a tile, but you'll lose the use of the camera since it'll be pointed up.
