    Reinforce Your Tailgate for Larger Tires. Larger tires are considerably heavier than your 2018-2020 Jeep Wrangler JL’s original stock tires and can place undue strain on your tailgate. The Mopar Tailgate Reinforcement Kit is designed to beef up your tailgate so you can carry your larger spare tire – up to 37 inches – with confidence.

    Durable Aluminum Construction. The Mopar Tailgate Reinforcement Kit’s beefy main reinforcement body is made from high-quality aluminum for increased strength without the added weight. A tough black powder coat finish further protects the unit from corrosion, as well as any bumps it might receive when driving.

    Simple Installation. The Mopar Tailgate Reinforcement Kit comes with all the necessary hardware for installation, and attaches to the factory hinges for convenience. No modifications on your Jeep or specialized tools are needed, so installation is a fairly simple procedure. Please note that an oversized spare tire carrier (sold separately) is required in order to accommodate your larger, 33 inch to 37 inch tires properly.

    Standard 2-Year Limited Warranty Applies. The Mopar Tailgate Reinforcement Kit is covered by a 2-year limited warranty covering manufacturing defects. Please visit the manufacturer’s website for further details.

    Application. The Mopar Tailgate Reinforcement Kit fits all 2018-2020 Jeep Wrangler JL models.

        It says over sized carrier required. My wheel fits as is, Do i need the additional part for this?

        • The The Mopar Tailgate Reinforcement Kit does require the Oversized Spare Tire Carrier (Sold Separately), as the stock OEM tire carrier is not compatible with it.

            Great product

            Works great to keep the heavy tire from weighing down the tailgate for. However, needed to buy a separate relocator for it and didn't know until after purchase so that was another $300. Wish it had been a package deal.

            Did not see any benefit to using this product. Purchased to be able to install larger tire. After installing this kit with Mopar relo bracket, tailgate dragged with larger tire. Reinstalled at ET's suggestion with same result. I paid a hefty price for this kit along with relocation bracket. Removed and returned. Mopar needs to re-design. Purchased new bumper with integrated tire carrier for final resolution.

            Bracket for my jk from rugged ridge much better shape seams more secure. Seams luke you dont need this. I dont ste how the ginger is reinforced. And way over priced.

            Fits and looks nice.

            Can definitely tell it serves as intended. Easy install. Don't be in a hurry. Use tools as suggested in instructions.

            Doesn't require oversize spare tire carrier

            There is one question on this product and the answer is not correct. This reinforcement kit can be installed and is fully compatible with the stock tire carrier on the JL. I bought some 17x9.5 wheels with 32 inch tires. I wanted to reinforce the tailgate due to the added weight, but the size of my wheel/tire combo was not an issue. I bought this without reading the question and answer listed on the product page, but I read it before installing. I was worried that I would need the oversized spare tire carrier so I watched videos and read through the instructions several times. I saw nothing to indicate that it wasn't compatible with the stock carrier so I got to work. It is fully compatible and there is nothing to worry about. The kit goes on easily. I am not sure of how much reinforcement it offers but it is more a sense of security for me.

            Bought this as it was the only option at the time for the new vehicle. Think its overpriced for a cast piece that bolts on to the tailgate hinge.

            Works Great for My 37" Tire

            I got the reinforcement kit to hold my Mickey Thompson Deegan 38 37" tire. It holds the weight great with no unwanted sounds coming from the tailgate.
