The Smittybilt HD Pivot Tire Carrier not only fits a 40" spare tire, but the innovative design adds strength to the JL factory tailgate and prevents flex, rattling, sag, and potential damage to your vehicle. Its fully customizable tire mount can be fine-tuned for height or backspace, and the adjustable tilt allows you to get extra ground clearance when working in tandem with an open or slanted top.
