Review & Installation Video

Review & Install Video

I'm Ryan from extremeterrain.com, and this is my review and installation of the Off Camber Fabrications by MBRP Spare Tire Bracket Kit, fitting all 1997 to 2006 TJs. Today we're gonna talk through the installation of this kit which is a very simple one out of three wrenches. This is designed to bolt directly on to your TJ in under an hour. But we'll talk more about the install in just a second. We're also gonna talk through the construction and a few of the features of this bracket. This is for those of you who wanna be able to run a 35-inch tire in the factory spare tire mount location. You may know that if you try to mount a 35 on your factory location on the tailgate, you will have a clearance issue between your bumper and your tire which won't allow you to properly close the tailgate. What this bracket does is move the mounting location up and out a little bit which will allow you to mount a wheel and tire that is wider with less backspacing and is also larger. This kit also comes with a couple of brackets to move your third brake light up over that new larger spare tire. Now, mounting a large, heavy spare in the factory location does have a couple of different issues. This one will fix your physical space issue. You won't have the clearance issue with your bumper anymore and you will be able to mount, again, a wide spare that has a low backspacing wheel. However, this is not addressing the weight issue of that larger spare. You still have a lot of weight on your factory tailgate hinges and you still have a lot of weight on your factory spare tire mount which isn't designed to carry more than your factory spare. So those weight issues are still present. In fact, by using a bracket like this which pushes everything away from the mounting point of that factory spare, you're actually causing some additional leverage which can make the issues caused by the additional weight even worse. So I would recommend this if you need a fairly inexpensive short-term fix to be able to still have a full-size spare on your TJ. However, for a long-term solution, I would recommend either going with a bumper-mounted tire carrier or a tub-mounted tire carrier that changes the factory tailgate hinges and gives you a much beefier mount. Overall, this is a really well-built bracket. This is going to be a heavy gauge steel that is laser cut and MIG welded. It comes with all of the hardware that you need to get it bolted up, as we mentioned before, not just the bracket but also these brackets which allow you to reposition your third brake light so it's still visible. This does come with the heavy gauge studs already pressed into it making install very easy. And, it will bolt directly on to your Jeep. So it is a very well-built piece. However, no matter how well-built this is, it still is going to cause the same issues that I mentioned before by creating additional leverage and not taking care of the additional weight of a big, heavy spare. To get this installed on your Jeep is a very simple one out of three wrench installation in under an hour. All you need to do is remove your factory spare tire, then you can unbolt your factory third brake light and install these two brackets which will raise that third brake light so it can be visible over a 35-inch tire. Finally, you'll install your spare tire bracket on your factory spare tire bracket using the factory lugs and lug nuts, and then install your new larger spare tire on your new bracket using the included hardware. Again, under an hour, just some traditional hand tools, very easy bolt-on installation. I would only recommend this bracket for short-term use, so I think that the $40 price tag is a fair one. If you do need to run a full-size spare, if you really feel like you have to have a full-size spare but you don't have the budget for a tub-mounted or a bumper-mounted tire carrier just yet, this is going to be a fairly inexpensive and well-built solution in the meantime. Again, I would not recommend running this for an extended period of time and this is not going to be a $40 solution that takes place of a $200, $300, $400, or $500 bumper tire carrier combination or a tub-mounted tire carrier. If you're looking for an inexpensive, well-built, and easy to install short-term solution to allow you to run a larger, heavier 35-inch spare tire in the factory spare tire mounting location on your TJ, this is going to be an excellent option for you. However, it's important to remember that this is not a permanent fix. This is a short-term solution. That's my review of the Off Camber Fabrications by MBRP Spare Tire Bracket Kit, fitting all 1997 to 2006 TJs that you can find right here at extremeterrain.com.

Specs. The factory spare tire carrier on your TJ is only designed to hold a stock size wheel and tire combo. A bigger wheel is going to be deeper than a stock rim, and a chunky off-road tire is going to be a lot heavier than the factory rubber. Needless to say, your stock spare tire mount won't be able to accommodate a bigger spare. MBRP's Off Camber Fabrications spare tire relocation bracket is designed to fit a deeper wheel, and it has a fully welded steel construction to handle the extra weight.

Construction. This spare tire relocation bracket is made from laser-cut, heavy gauge steel, and it's MIG welded to give it the strength to handle a bigger wheel and tire combination. Plus, this bracket comes with an additional steel bracket to relocate the third brake light above the tire.

Application. Fits any 1997 - 2006 Wrangler TJ with a rear spare tire mount.

Can I get this in a 4.5" factory bolt pattern to attach to existing bracket with a 5" bolt pattern for the spare?

BradS

Does the tire rest up against the spare tire bumpers that are attached to the tailgate? This would be for a 2004 Jeep Wrangler TJ. Thank you

Anonymous

  • Hello, depending on what size wheels and tires you have it may or may not rest on the bumpers. Since this bracket adds some distance the tire should be close but not touching.

    Spare tire kit

    This kit is nice and affordable. Took very little time to install. For a short time use this kit is absolutely perfect. The only note is that though the 3rd brake light gets moved up to be visible with up to a 35 inch spare mounted, it is just barely visible and can still get ya pulled over by a cop having a bad day. This is why I rated it 4 out of 5, I like everything about it but the brake light needs about a half inch more.

    Must Have!!!

    This item is a must have when upgrading to a larger tire! When you pay for a lift kit, and beefier tires the total can add up quick. Especially for those that are not handy with a wrench and also have to pay for the lift to be installed. You may cringe at having to pay a couple hundred bucks for a new bumper with a carrier. Not with this baby. Does the job and is easy on the wallet!

    This product works perfectly

    I received this product and had it installed the very same day. It was quite easy to install even though it came with no instructions, just takes a little common sense. The bracket is made very well and supports a 10" wide rim with a 35" tire with no problems. I did not install the brake light bracket, but it would have been a breeze as well. I would highly recommend this to anyone who wanted to beef up the spare without taking a chunk out of your wallet with a new bumper/tire carrier.

    A little elbow grease but works

    The bracket itself works and serves it's purpose. However, the nuts were screwed onto the bolts wrong and required quite a bit of muscle to remove. After i went and bought all new bolts and nuts, i was able to install in no time. Tire fits perfect and 3rs brake light was up out of the way and functional. It has a little slack in its sturdiness, but my Jeep is 21 years old and won't see any off roading anymore so it should last. Overall I'm happy with it.
