    Review & Install Video

    I'm Ryan from ExtremeTerrain.com, and this is my review and installation of the MORryde Heavy-Duty Spare Tire Carrier fitting all 2007 to 2017 JKs. Today, we're gonna talk about some of the features of this tire carrier kit and talk you through the installation. There are a few different problems that come up when you try to run a large, heavy spare tire on the factory spare tire location. The first of these problems is that your tailgate hinges can start to wear out, causing the tailgate to sag. The second problem is that the tailgate itself can start to come apart at the welds, causing a lot of rattling and a lot of other noises. And finally, you can have issues with the spare tire mount on your factory tailgate starting to fatigue and break, especially if you don't keep that new, heavy, larger spare tire from moving around. So those are three issues that can occur. MORryde has three separate parts that will all fix one of those three different issues. This part that we have here is the tire carrier that can be used in conjunction with MORryde's tailgate reinforcement kit and heavy-duty tailgate hinges, or it can be used as a standalone product. If you're using this on its own, it'll mount on to the factory tailgate, so you'll still have the issues of a tailgate that can come apart at the welds and weak hinges. However, it will allow you to physically fit a larger spare tire in the factory location with this aftermarket mount without having an issue with the tire hitting the bumper. You can run up to a 40-inch tire on this spare tire mount in the factory location on the factory tailgate without having any clearance issues. But that's not to say that's a good idea, I would recommend if you're running a tire that large or really anything over the stock size and weight that you do either purchase the tailgate reinforcement kit and the heavy-duty hinges or go with a full tub mounted tire carrier or bumper mounted tire carrier to support the additional weight and size of a large spare. All of that being said, if you're just looking for a mount to be able to mount a larger tire on and be able to have it guaranteed to have that larger tire in the factory location, this is going to be an option. So, as far as construction goes, this is made of a mild steel material. It's covered in a textured black powder coat, and really it's a fairly simple design. As I mentioned, it works for up to a 37-inch tire on the first adjustment and a 40-inch tire on the second, and that adjustment is really two sets of holes, one that's slightly higher than the other. You're not going to have a lot of up and down adjustability like you would with a full tub mounted tire carrier or with a lot of the tub [SP] and bumper mounted tire carriers. If you're looking for additional adjustment up, down, and also in and out, I would recommend taking a look at the TeraFlex Tub Mounted Tire Carrier or the Barricade Extreme HD Bumper Mounted Tire Carrier. Both of those will have the in and out, and up and down adjustability. Now the in and out adjustability is nice because again you have a lot of weight hanging off the back of the Jeep in a large, heavy spare, and you want it to be tight up against whatever tire carrier you have. Otherwise, you're going to have that tire twerking around as you hit bumps on the road at low speed and at high speed, and that can eventually fatigue the metal and then cause some issues. So without adjustability, you get to keep everything nice and tight. The up and down adjustability is nice because if I'm running a larger 33 or 35-inch tire, I wanna be able to keep that as low as possible on my carrier and have maximum visibility of the back of the Jeep. This, however, doesn't give me enough adjustability to tuck say a 33-inch tire nice and low as tight up against the bumper as I can get it, giving me maximum visibility. This does have a lot of adjustability in the third brake light mount that comes with it. So, no matter what size tire you're running all the way up to the max on this carrier of a 40-inch, you are going to be able to adjust the third brake light mount so that you can see it over the top of that 40-inch tire. I do like this third brake light mount. It takes the factory a third brake light out of its housing allows you to put it on this adjustable mount, so you're not going out to purchase a separate third brake light. This will keep you legal and keep you safe without the need to purchase any additional components. Getting this mounted up on the Jeep is going to be a very simple process. The first step is to remove your factory tire carrier from the back of the Jeep by removing the eight bolts that hold it on to the tailgate. You also have to pop a trim piece loose on the inside of the tailgate to get to a plug to allow you to unplug your third brake light. From there, you can detach the third brake light from the factory spare tire mount and put it in your new adjustable mount. You'll then use the factory hardware to attach your new tire carrier on to the tailgate in those factory locations, so no drilling is necessary. Again, if you're running up a 37-inch tire, you can use these upper holes, and if you're running a 40-inch or larger, you'll use the bottom holes to move the tire carrier up as high as possible and give you a little bit of extra clearance. Once you have this bolted on, you can bolt your third brake light into its new adjustable mount on to your new carrier, plug it back in and replace that trim piece, and then it's just a matter of putting your new, larger spare tire on to your spare tire carrier. This whole installation shouldn't take you more than an hour, and you won't need any specialty tools to get the job done, just some hand tools. When you consider the price of this tire carrier at right around $150, it may not seem like a bad deal right off the bat. However, it's important to remember that this doesn't solve all the problems of having a big, heavy spare mounted in the factory location. As I mentioned before, if I was going to run this for any extended period of time with even a 33-inch tire, let alone a 35, 37 or bigger, I would be running this with MORryde's Heavy-Duty hinge kit and also tailgate reinforcement kit. And by the time you buy all three of those parts, you're going to be right around the same cost as a full tub mounted tire carrier. And as I mentioned before, the one from TeraFlex has some built-in adjustability that this doesn't have that I really like. So, if you wanna be able to piece something together, buy a couple of parts now, a couple down the line, spread out the cost, having this modular kit isn't a bad idea. However, I wouldn't look at this and say, "This is significantly cheaper than another model on the market, I'm just gonna buy this," because this is not going to be everything you need to support running a large, heavy spare. So, if you're looking for a modular kit to put together in order to run a large, heavy spare tire on your tailgate without causing damage to the tailgate, this is going to be part of that modular kit. However, if you're looking for a one-stop shop that's going to have everything you need from the hinges all the way through the carrier, then I would recommend looking at one of those other options on the market. So that's my review of the MORryde Heavy Duty Spare Tire Carrier fitting all 2007 to 2017 JKs. You can buy them right here at ExtremeTerrain.com.

        I have 35x12.5R18 tires with a -12 offset, will this carrier make the space between the tailgate and the tire pretty close to stock? Or will it increase the gap? Thanks!

        • The MORryde Heavy Duty Spare Tire Carrier will retain the OEM tire mounting depth, unless installed with the tailgate reinforcement which will push this out further.

        If I get this, the heavy duty hinges and tailgate reinforcement, would that be sufficient to run a 40in tire?!

        • This MORryde Heavy Duty Spare Tire Carrier can hold most 40 inch tires however, we would highly recommend the MORryde Tailgate Reinforcement Kit, item J104168 and the MORryde Heavy Duty TailGate Hinge Set, item J102515. https://www.extremeterrain.com/morryde-tailgate-reinforce-kit-jp54-016.html https://www.extremeterrain.com/barricade-hd-tail-hinges-j102515.html

        I have 18" wheels with -24 offset mounted to 34" tire. This much offset causes spare to stick out well past bump stops factory carrier. Will the Morryde carrier bring spare closer to tailgate?

        • The MORryde Heavy Duty Spare Tire Carrier will push the spare tire away from the bumper and tailgate.

            Carrier is a lot heavier than stock and supercessy to install. You need to extend the cables if you are putting bigger than a 35" on it.

            I've had the tire carrier installed along with MORryde's tailgate reinforcement and hinges for almost a year now. The whole setup is very sturdy and looks great. It's holding a 33" spare weighing around 84lbs. Highly recommend and wouldn't hesitate to purchase again!

            Great Product

            Welds and coatings were great. Solid construction. 30 mins or less to remove spare, factory carrier and assemble/install MORryde carrier. Bought my JK used and it came with the MORryde hinges installed. I strongly recommend if you’ve not already purchased any upgrades for the tailgate to watch the install video. He is spot on when saying that you will need to purchase the hinges, the reinforcement and the carrier if you go to anything other than factory. The factory carrier and hinges are subpar at best and designed to be lightweight not handle loading of anything other than factory components. The reinforcement kit is needed because the door seam welds WILL break after time regardless of any upgrades. That said look at the pricing for the three MORryde components. While they are great products, you would be better off buying a kit as mentioned in the video that has all three already included.

            I like the beefyness of the space tire holder

            I like the beefyness of the spare tire holder...very sturdy. However I get a rattle noise when spare tire is mounted to it. I checked to make sure everything was tight and it is... I even took it off and reinstalled it.. the noise is still there... I'm not sure what else to do. Holder is tight and spare tire is tight. When tires not on the tire holder there's no rattle. Should I up grade to a different spare tire holder?

            Upgraded from stock carrier so I could fit my 37”s and was looking for a inexpensive and simple fix, this was both. I didn’t have to upgrade hinges unlike other carriers and also gives it a more aggressive look and feel to the jeep. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to fit bigger tires or just want to improve the look and save money while doing so.
