Eliminating the factory spare tire carrier for any reason exposes the plastic and rubber factory cabin vent on your 2007-2018 Jeep JK Wrangler. Left exposed, there can be an increased amount of dirt and debris entering the inside of the tailgate. Covering it completely will affect cabin airflow when the top or doors are on and cause the HVAC system not to work properly. This Tailgate Vent Plate Kit from JKS Manufacturing solves those issues!
