      Specs. Rugged Ridge's spare tire spacer is constructed of durable and tough steel, and features a textured powder coated finish for a rugged look.

      Construction. This spacer bolts directly onto your Jeep's factory spare tire mount and moves the spare two inches up and out. This spacer can be used with either a 5 by 4.5 inch lug pattern or a 5 by 5 inch lug pattern. Since the 2007 - 2012 JK tailgates are not designed to holder large spares, Rugged Ridge's suggested maximum tire size with this spacer is 33 by 12.5 inches.

      Application. This spacer bolts to any 1987-2018 Wrangler YJ, TJ and JK.

        Worked great

        Got my 33” tire of my bumper so I can close my tailgate. Easy install.

        Perfect for larger tires

        My 33" spare was hitting the bumper making it hard to get the tailgate closed. I bought this as a cheap fix until I get a new bumper with a swing out tire carrier. It works great and I don't get any rattling like I thought I would.

        Did exactly what I needed it to do

        Got my 31s up and off the after market rear bumper. Installed in minutes. Would accommodate 32 11.50 comfortably with my after market bumper.

        Great product, poor directions

        Very simple instal, but the order is all out of whack. Screw in the bolts before mounting the piece or it is a huge bummer. It’s quality and does the trick. My 33 inch tires were touching my stock bumper before, now they are up and out.

        5 2015 Wrangler - MikeS Installation Time: Less than 1 Hour


        Nice quality and look. I am looking at either 31 or 33 tires and still maintain the overall look of the Jeep. I believe the spacers work well with either of these tires and allow me to keep the orgininal fenders and a 2.5 inch lift kit to round things out.

        Perfect for what I needed.

        I bought a Smittybilt bumper without the tire carrier, I only had a 32" tire and figured I'd be fine... I was wrong, the tire didn't clear the bumper. This gave me plenty of clearance! Install was easy too! Same as bolting the wheel on.
