It doesn't look like your carrier is adjusted all the way. The tire should be touching those bump stops.
Naw, it needs to be measured and brought in, but with the new full system it really doesn't matter if touches the factory bump stops or not, she ain't moving anywhere. The idea of the bump stop is to stop the Tire from making contact if you hit a large obstacle/bump but when you replace the entire hinge system and beef up the door support you see that spare ain't moving a centimeter and it isn't even close to as loose and flimsy as the factory plastic setup. I can literally hang from the tire and swing and it does not move even one centimeter. Plan on pulling it in before we hit the trails this weekend. :rock:

They’re the same, just longer. Has to be that kind of bolt because can’t use stainless with aluminum without some kind of grease, even then there’s a chance of corrosion.
@Roky is saying the bolts are replaced by different ones. Roky do you know if they are stronger grade by chance?
I replaced all my bead lock bolts with local grade 8 ones that were exact same size and used bronze anti seize. Previously I snapped a few by not being methodical and patient enough with the pattern Helped a lot. In my case they were 1/2 not 13mm which helped a bit with socket clearance. What a pain the ass they are.

Good into, but I feel like I would need to get these tapped again to safely consider using them with lock rings, no?

Mine the popped off, just removed all the bolts the pulled out the broken bolt threads with pliers and threads were fine. Did you looked at your threads? If damaged them a tap maybe ok. Worst case heli coil or try to return it or use it as spare...

FYI the aluminum on mine was from the ring the wheel threads were ok, at least I could hand thread a bolt in it,

The ring on mine right now is plastic. I was literally blowing off the shavings of aluminum like saw dust lol.

Long time lurker, first time poster. Have done several things so far but latest is Motobilt spare tire carrier and license plate relocation bracket. Thing is solid as a rock and very well built!

One other thing, and you might be aware, but try to take it to a 4x4 shop that has a road force balancer, most of the box tire stores aren’t equipped to handle that size tire or bead locks. Unless you’re gonna do it yourself. Just a suggestion.

Have you installed yet ? Looking to upgrade my system to. Wanted to ask if there was much modification needed for the C2-400 ? Did you put them in knee panel or roll bar ?

Dropped my windshield for the first time today so I could put on my spiderwebshade.

Took me about an hour by myself, I wasn’t rushing. Biggest headache was taking off the windshield wipers the first time. They didn’t want to budge. A few smacks with a rubber mallet and they came loose.
