    5 Top Rated Questions

    What are the 2 threaded and greased holes on the top of the carrier for?

    Does it really require the use of that pin and cable at the latch in order to remain closed safely or is that only for pleasing the lawyers? I'm constantly in and out of the tailgate and already not attracted to the extra step of having to open the tire carrier before I can open the door, but that pin and cable looks like a pain in the butt.

    • The pin is used to secure the carrier in the closed position, with this removed the carrier can move freely while driving. The cable is there to prevent the pin from being lost.

      Smittybilt SRC wirh tire carrier

      Not all the instructions were straight forward about where the bolts Go . Also, bolts were zinc plated. Not rrally rated for outdoor use. Listed 5 lock nuts but only supplied 3 and 2 lock washers. Need two wrenches to tighten the bolts on the tire carrier. Had they been carriage bolts only one wrench would be needed. Also, beware of aftermarket hinges on the tailgate. Most will be a problem because on the hinge pin location. Pleased with the final outcome even though the install was more problematic.

      Do not buy

      It looks good but makes a ton of noise when driving. Also you have to drop the gas tank to install on a TJ and drill holes. The release to open the tire carrier sticks and is hard to open sometimes. I would shop for other tire carriers before I would buy this one.

      Solid Product

      The tire carrier was a really solid purchase. Coating holds up well and the carrier is strong enough, yet thin enough to keep the back of my jeep looking clean. I really like how tough it is; even with a larger wheel and tire, theres no doubt it's durable tire carrier.

      Good carrier for the money

      The tire carrier and bumper go together well. The c clip requires a special tool to install. Good adjustment on the carrier for large tires. It rattles a little.

      Good product

      Really like this tire carrier, the instructions are iffy but the product works really well when installed and doesn't rattle if you install the rubber bump stop.

      Smittybilt SRC classic tire carrier

      This tire carrier and bumper combo I have had for a good little while to hold up the 5th. It looks really good. Well worth the money. If I built another jeep I would definitely go with this carrier.

      Great addition if you have the bumper.

      I bought the bumper that goes with this for my sons Jeep months ago. I decided to go ahead and order this to go with it. Install was easy, greatly improves the looks of the Jeep in my opinion.

      Great product

      I purchased the tire carrier to go with the bumper I purchased a few ago; easy installation and looks great. I like the idea of being able to tow with this package.
