Review & Installation Video

Review & Install Video

This is Ryan from, and this is my review of the Synergy Spare Tire Relocation Bracket, fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs. Those of you who are running a larger than factory spare tire on the factory spare tire mount with a factory rear bumper will know that a large spare tire will contact the bumper, not allowing the tailgate to close properly. The idea of this bracket is to move the spare tire up just enough to clear the rear bumper and allow you to run up to a 35-inch tire on your factory setup. However, in my opinion, this is really a temporary solution. When you're running a large, heavy spare tire on your factory spare tire mount on the factory tailgate, a number of issues can arise. The additional weight of that spare tire can wear out your factory tailgate hinges, causing the tailgate to sag, and you'll have to pick up a little bit every time you open and close the tailgate. The additional weight of the spare tire can actually break the welds on the tailgate itself, causing rattling and eventually the target to completely break apart. And the factory spare tire mount is only designed for a certain amount of weight. So having a big, heavy, large spare tire on it can cause the metal to fatigue and eventually break. Adding a bracket like this, while it does give you the clearance to have a larger spare tire, it does not address the weight issue, which is why, again, in my opinion, this is a temporary solution to a problem that eventually you're going to have to find a permanent solution to. And that permanent solution will be a tub-mounted or a tire carrier that is not into the bumper to better support the additional weight. This not only doesn't solve that problem, it can actually compound it. This bracket will push your spare tire away from the tailgate a little bit, which causes even more leverage to cause even more damage to the tailgate hinges, the tailgate itself, and the spare tire mount. Even though this is a temporary solution to a much bigger problem, the product itself is really well-built. It's made of a quarter-inch steel plate that CNC bent and welded, and the whole thing is covered in a black, powder-coated finish. This comes with the studs pre-installed and all of the hardware necessary to get it installed on the Jeep. Getting this bracket installed on the Jeep is a really simple process. All you need to do is remove your spare tire, mount the bracket onto your factory spare tire mount, and then reinstall the spare tire onto your new bracket. Like we said before, this comes with all of the hardware that you need to get it installed, and the whole process shouldn't take you more than 15 minutes. The only tool you'll need is the lug nut wrench. I'm a little bit torn when talking about the price versus the value of this product, because I think it is really well-built. It's a very solid part, and Synergy is known to make high-quality components. However, in my opinion, the price does seem high for something that is ultimately a temporary solution. Eventually, you're going to need to get a tub-mounted tire carrier or a bumper with a tire carrier on it to carry the additional weight of your spare tire. So in my opinion, it makes sense to save the money you would have spent on this and put it toward one of those more permanent solutions. So if you're looking for a temporary solution to carry a larger spare tire on your factory spare tire mount with a factory rear bumper, this is a really nice option. However, it's very important to remember that this is only a temporary solution, and eventually, you're going to have to get a permanent solution for carrying that large, heavy spare. So that's my review of the Synergy Spare Tire Relocation Bracket, fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs, that you can find right here at

Design. The Synergy Spare Tire Relocation Bracket is designed to be utilized on your factory spare tire mount for up to a 35 inch spare tire. It can be easily installed, preventing interference from your Wrangler's factory rear bumper with oversized spare tires.

Construction. This mount is laser cut from ¼” steel, CNC bent and welded to offer a premium fit. It also comes with a black powder-coated finish that offers durability and resistance against corrosion, for outstanding performance in any climate.

      Have there been any concerns about rattles and how about added stress to the tailgate due to the weight of a 35 inch tire?

      • we have not heard of any issues with the Synergy Spare Tire Relocation Bracket creating rattles or creaks. Depending on the weight of your 35" Wheel/tire combo, upgraded hinges would not be a bad preventative measure, but are typically not needed.

          Worked perfectly. Looks great.

          Excellent for using 33” tires on factory wheels. Moved the tire out and up enough to clear the bumper and it still looks tight to the tailgate.

          Great cheap fix to get a bigger spare on the car. Easy install. A 35" tire will block the bottom half of the light but not a deal breaker.

          Very simple install and fits the 35x12.5 no problem. I would recommend purchasing a third brake light extension as the tire is blocking most of the light.

          Works as advertised.

          The mount works as advertised holds the tire up and out. It fits great just bolts right on. But I would recommend using capless lugs nuts because the studs on the mount are pretty long.

          This product was a great convince and a money saver.

          Easy installation this made it possible for me to fit my 35" tires on my stock spare tire carrier. This was easier then buying a whole new set for my spare tire carrier. I ended up saving a lot more money and it works so well!
