      Review & Installation Video

      I'm Ryan from, 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

      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.

        Almost perfect!

        Everything is pretty straight forward, and all the necessary hardware is included. I liked this item because it included a spacer for the third brake light. Installing the spacer was a breeze. When it came time to install the bracket for the tire itself, the wholes were drilled to an a fraction of a milimiter off. I’m going to bore the holes out tomorrow, and then touch them up again with some black paint. It should be easy enough to do, but just a heartbreak when I was ready to be done with this project today.

        3rd break light

        The tire mount itself works as described but installing the extension for the 3rd brake light what is awkward to say the least. I would assume that’s why no instructions were included for that piece of the installation

        Heavy duty

        The bracket worked great for raising up the tire. It’s heavy duty and you get some brackets to raise the 3rd light as well.

        Did the job

        Very simple yet very effective. I can run 285/75/R16s with any bumper with no issues now. My only concern is it allows the spare to move more due to how far is moved out, but it seems durable enough to withstand it. Would recommend

        Spare wheel bracket

        This bracket is fantastic, very easy to fit, only took me 10 minutes. It cost me £55 and I got it 8-9 days after ordering it, and here in the UK the same thing cost's £99. So well worth the money..

      Will this work permanently if a 31" tire with 15 inch rim is hanging on it?

      • You would be able to run a 31" tire on this Off Camber Fabrications by MBRP Spare Tire Bracket Kit, but it would not be needed for a 31 inch tire. The reason this is a short term fix for larger tires is due to the amount of strain a heavier tire puts on the factory hinges.

      is there a adapter that will recenter your spare to the left so as it will be in the center of the vehicle?--(looks real bad on your rear double tube bumper with the spacing in the middle for the larger tires--Let me know--Thank-u___Bob

      Is it possible to get this to be able to fit a 5 x 5 bolt pattern I’m running JK wheels on my TJ and I want to be able to use this instead of having to go with spacer

      • As this is designed to accommodate the TJ bolt pattern you would need an adapter for the 5x5 JK bolt pattern.

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

      • The Off Camber Fabrications by MBRP Spare Tire Bracket Kit is designed to accept OEM 4.5x5 lug pattern wheels. Any bracket can be added that bolts to a 4.5x5 lug pattern, however this will move the wheel further past the tailgate.

      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 1 answer
