There is nothing quite like blazing the trail in your JK Jeep Wrangler! While most trucks, 4x4s, and SUVs are capable of handling modest terrains, JK Wranglers can handle just about any driving surface and execute off-roading maneuvers in which non-Jeep drivers can only imagine. In addition to endless possibilities on the trail, the power to customize your build to your liking is perhaps the biggest benefit of owning a Wrangler. If you are unsatisfied with your factory hardtop, simply replace it with an aftermarket soft top, and enjoy your newfound headroom when the weather is nice!
Adjusting the factory ride height is perhaps the biggest aftermarket enhancement in which Jeep owners decide to make. Raising the vehicle several inches higher off the ground increases the center gravity of the 4x4 and opens the door to all sorts of off-roading possibilities that would not exist otherwise. Along with the newfound capabilities on the trail, investing in a Wrangler lift kit will help your build accommodate larger tires. In addition to ensuring that your wheels and its supporting components can handle larger tires, it is best to equip your 4x4 with an aftermarket Wrangler tire carrier before you make the change.
As the name implies, Jeep Wrangler tire carriers are tasked with keeping your spare tire bolted to the rear of your JK at all times. The spare tire being conveniently located on the rear of the vehicle is a defining characteristic of the entire Jeep brand, and the tradition continued into the JK Generation.
Along with being sturdy enough to support the weight of the tire, Wrangler spare tire carriers must also be easy to access in event of an emergency. In addition to the spare tire itself, many Jeep Wrangler tire carriers can accommodate bicycles and other large items that you do not wish to haul inside the cabin.
Not only can an aftermarket Jeep Wrangler spare tire carrier support larger tires, but certain models can actually enhance your build’s lighting system. Though the factory lighting system is generally not up to par, Jeep Wranglers have plenty of areas in which additional illuminations can be mounted to, including the bumper and hood in the front, and the Wrangler spare tire carrier in the rear. Having to change a spare at night is not enjoyable, but having a well-lit Jeep Wrangler tire carrier can make the taxing process far more tolerable.
Many factory Wrangler tire carriers are only equipped to handle certain sized tires and cannot accommodate the weight of larger upgrades. Failure to equip your 4x4 with the correct size Wrangler tire carrier could cause the tailgate door to remain open or even sizable damage to the entire rear of the vehicle if you are not careful. The best way to prevent any long-term problems is to swap out your factory Wrangler tire carrier if you have decided to add larger tires to your build.
