    Designed for Over-Sized Tires. The Smittybilt XRC Black Textured Rear Swing Away Tire Carrier features a billet handle with a camlock system. It also has a fully adjustable tire mount for tires up to 40 inches. The safety catch for this Jeep Wrangler Tire Carrier holds the swing away open or keeps it positioned at an angle. It allows effortless parking even in uneven parking situations.

    Durable Construction. Smittybilt manufactures its Swing Away Tire Carrier to precise specifications from steel plating for superior strength and rigidity. Smittybilt then completes the Tire Carrier in a textured black powder coating for long lasting durability.

    Bolt-on Installation. Smittybilt designed its Tire Carrier to be a direct bolt-on upgrade for its XRC Rear Bumper, which is available here. As a direct fit upgrade, this Smittybilt Tire Carrier simply mounts to the matching bumper with no additional cutting, welding, or fabrication required.

    Application. This textured black Smittybilt XRC Rear Swing Away Tire Carrier is specifically designed to be used on the 1987-2006 Jeep Wrangler YJ and TJ models equipped with Smittybilt's Rear Bumper part# 76653.

        what side does this pivot on? the featured picture shows it pivots on the left side and al the others show it pivoting on the right. For my application I need a left pivot. Also will this mount a wheel with 6.5" of back spacing?

        • The hinge will be located on the right side, and a wheel of 6.5 inches of backspacing would fit just fine.

            Hits the hinges

            The installation went smooth up until closing it. I left everything loose to adjust the fit but it still pushes against the lower tailgate hinge. I was able to close after my neighbor helped me force it shut, bowing the tire carrier and flaking the powder coating. I'm glad I bought a warranty. I reached out to Smittybilt and they had me send photos. I sent the photos and never heard back. My hinges are stock so it doesn't fit the 92 YJ as claimed.

            XRC

            Bumper and tire carrier look good and operate as designed. No issues there. I shouldn’t spend that much money and then have to go by nuts and bolts because they fail to send them. PITA

            Must be patient

            When you go to put it on make sure you have some help to pick up the bumper. It's solid and heavy. Once you get it started it isn't to bad. There are a couple spots that are time consuming. It looks great.

            READ CAREFULLY!!

            Not happy with purchase, it was towards the end of the page and did not realize the bumper was not included. People read the pictures, the description showed a bumper with all the specs along with the tire carrier. The pricing was so much higher than the other swing aways, i was confinced the bumper was included.

            Very nice tire carrier that goes perfect with my XRC bumper. I gave it 4 stars because there aren't any accessory or mounting points for Jerry cans or tools.

            Tire carrier only

            Product is only the tire carrier, unlike all the photos shown including the descriptive picture where the tire carrier is not connected to a jeep, it is still connected to a bumper. I believed based on that I was ordering the tire carrier and bumper. It is not both. Don't make the same mistake I made.

            Does the job

            Pain to install, ended up buying a carbide bit to make holes larger and grind metals. Template didn't work, but it holds the tire and opens when I need it to.

            Decent Tire Carrier to Complement XRC Rear Bumper

            Strong, solid tire carrier. Installation was fairly simple, instructions were good. Only complaint is that the spare tire is not quite centered on the vehicle and the only reason I did not give 5 stars.

            Great Look

            The instillation was fairly easy but somewhat time consuming. A few bolts were hard to put in due to the small spaces that you have to reach into to put them on. Besides the time consuming install I love the product! Looks great and is good quality!

            I like the look of the Smittybilt products and really like the swing arm along with the XRC bumper. I do recommend making your adjustments before tightening everything down. Everything was well packed and labeled. Not difficult to install and the look is great.
