        Not very good

        Had to redrill most of the mounting holes because they were off by about an inch. It is not very user friendly for my wife if she drives it and has to get in the back. It looks tough! I would not purchase this item again

        Great but....

        The bumper and tire carrier is great, but the instructions are remedial at best

        3 2007 Wrangler - Notjustforlooks Installation Time: Afternoon


        It'seems been on the jeep for a while so this is a long. Term review. For the price they could have done a MUCH better job. The latch broke (which was replaced by them) and later the the carrier hinge post weld cracked. Cold weld. When I took it apart I found axle spindle bearings were used, which is fine, but NO bearing seals, which is not fine. The bearings were rusty and had to be soaked to get them in working condition. Then I had to fabricate a bearing seal which was a real pain in the butt. These are things that should have been addressed at the drawing board. Pros: it is heavy duty and fabricated well

        Rugged Ridge makes one of the best looking bumpers I've see around. The bumper and spare tire mount were a very good fit, overall I'm really happy. My only complaint is the latch system for the spare tire carrier totally sucks! Had to modify the latch & pin. Latch doesn't hold and spare tire holder will work itself loose and unlatch. Also had to install a couple of rubber bumps to keep the spare tire carrier from rattling (not a big deal). If your going to spend $1100 on a bumper & spare tire carrier, you shouldn't have to go through all of this to make it work!!

        Works and looks great with bumper

        The Rugged Ridge Tire Carrier for XHD Rear Bumper is a good product, the only problems I have had with it was it can be a little wobbly and the lock for the handle can pop off easily. I modified the wire for the lock by putting it behind one of the bolts so it wouldn't keep coming off. Other than that, Its a great product, looks good and hasn't rusted yet.
