Secure Tire Carriage. The DV8 Off-Road TC-6 Easy Open Tire Carrier for RS-10 & RS-11 Bumpers are the perfect alternative for RS 11 and RS 10 rear bumpers on all Wrangler JK Models. The carrier spans from the Jeep's rear tailgate to its bumper, giving it the capability to comfortably accommodate even the largest tires. Its mounting points provide for multiple utilities such as fuel cans and hi-lift jacks.
Advanced Convenience. In addition to providing multiple mount points that accommodate other items like fuel containers, the TC-6's design provides easy access. In contrast to the traditional two step opening process, this easy-open carrier releases with the tailgate to give unhindered access.
Tough Construction. The DV8 TC-6 carrier is precisely cut from high grade 3/16” steel plates for superior rigidity and strength. The carrier is then finished with a unique 2-stage high-grade black textured powder coating to protect it from the outside elements such as corrosion and rust.
Installation. The TC-6 tire carrier is CNC laser-cut to provide a precise fit. The carrier provides for a quick and easy bolt-on installation that requires no mechanical skills or tools.
Warranty. DV8 assures that the carrier is free of any defect from material and workmanship and covers the piece with a 3-year limited warranty.
Application. The DV8 Off-Road TC-6 Easy Open Tire Carrier is designed to be compatible with all 2007-2018 Jeep Wrangler JK models equipped with an RS-10 or RS-11 Bumper.

Great product easy install
Love the look and install was a breeze. Got the rs-10 and tc-6 combo I love how the tire swings with the tailgate so it’s just one step to open as opposed to two. Install was done by one person in about an hourHelpful (1)

Complete Garbage, Product and DV8 company
Horrific Rattle, Requires cutting and welding to line up because of very poor manufacturing. Company no help.Helpful (1)

Rugged construction and super smooth action with no rattle. The instructions miss installing a vital bearing seat (looks like a plastic washer) that is needed to make the the carrier seat properly in the bumper.Helpful (1)

I installed the TC along with front and rear DV8 bumpers. These comments are on the TC. -As others state, no instructions and small parts are loose in the box. You will have to rely on online videos, which are fairly accurate.....but not 100. -quality of material is pretty good. Metal is thick enough and powder coating looks like it hold up. -connecting the main pin is difficult due to location on the bumper that you must access with socket set to get tight. There is nothing to grip on one end to tighten. The bolt that holds it on is 1 3/16, not 1 1/2 as video says. -had to buy additonal washers since it would not stabilize using the ones provided. They have to be larger size. -All issues worked themselves out except for the threaded bolts that adjust the tightness to rear door. These seem to either be too loose or too tight, hard to get it right. Others mention this. I am not sure that I would buy it again......ask in a year and I'll know -Helpful (1)

Great looking and solid
I replaced my OE bumper with this easy open tire carrier and RS-10 bumper and wow do I love it. Also replaced brake light wheel mount with spare tire ring light, very cool, clean look, and functional. Highly recommend this rear bumper setupHelpful (2)

Extremely easy installation, the video on the Extreme Terrain Website helps quite a bit. One note is the nuts are all metric. The largest requires a 30mm socket and a similar sized wrench.Helpful (5)

In the end this was a great install
So directions were a little hard to find then I got stumped trying to get it right to the door for final fit. Contacted dv8 and they were great! I had everything write but they changed design a Little and had to trim one of the eye bolts that allow door to swing with tail gate. Once done it was flawless! Also rugged ridge wheel brake light goes amazing with thisHelpful (12)

Quality for the $.
I bought this to pair with a dv8 rs-11. The extra bearing spacer make install more of a pain than I would have liked. The installation directions could have been a bit more clear. Also, the heim joint that comes with it to tie the carrier to the tailgate should be reverse threaded so that you can tighten it up, but it sadly is not. As it is there is some extra road noise that could be solved by a better heim turnbuckle.Helpful (12)

Not sure why but for what ever reason there was a lot of play in the tire carrier. I tried everything to fix the rattle, but i was eventually able to fix it by putting an old sock where the carrier meets the tailgate which almost completely elimated it. Once i fixed the rattle i was happy. I just wish it didn't rattle in the first place.Helpful (12)

Great Tire Carrier
I love this tire carrier. I did have to shorten the heim bolts some to complete the installation. This is very solid and looks great.Helpful (11)
Is it Compatible with the DV8 Off-Road RS-9 Full Length Rear Bumper!? Just making sure it is before placing the order.
Unfortunately, this part will not work with the DV8 RS-9 rear bumper due to DV8 designing this part otwork with their RS-10 and RS-11.
How is the 3rd brake light installed after this tire carrier is up? Also, will the wheel studs accept a spine drive lug nut for aftermarket wheels.
The OEM third brake light is not compatible with this tire carrier and it only supports the OEM JK lug patterns of 5x5.
Is the tow hitch class Iii rated?
This is not tow rated.
I have a 1.75” body lift, will this be able to be attached to the tailgate and open properly?
Yes, this will not affect that installation of this tire carrier.
Will the Jeep factory lug nuts work with this spare tire carrier?
Yes, your stock lug nuts should work just fine!
This is not compatible with stock bumpers.
This will only work with RS10 and RS11 bumpers.
This does have Top Quality 2-Stage Black Textured Powder Coat Finish
That would be the weight for the tire carrier itself, this does not include the bumper.
This will use the stock 1/2"-20 lug nut thread pitch.
This part will swing open with the tailgate and cannot be opened by itself without removing a bolt behind the tire carrier. As for the third brake light, it is not designed to work with the factory light. I would recommend part number J107958. https://www.extremeterrain.com/rugged-ridge-accessory-brake-light-led-ring-8717.html
The DV8 Off-Road TC-6 Easy Open Tire Carrier will only work for DV8 RS-10 & RS-11 Bumpers.
The bumper is not included with the tire carrier. However, we do offer the RS-10 and RS-11 rear bumpers which can be found here: https://www.extremeterrain.com/dv8-off-road-rs-10-rear-bumper-0717.htmland https://www.extremeterrain.com/dv8-off-road-rs-11-rear-bumper-0717-jk.html.
The DV8 Off-Road TC-6 Easy Open Tire Carrier for RS-10 & RS-11 Bumpers would be able to work with the Rotopax mounts for fuel cans yes.
