Everything is well made, like extremely well made. Mount allowed me to raise my spare about 2-1/4" with more adjustment possible. It does net +45lbs after install. Install was simple. The instructions were 99% accurate (8 screws in the OEM brake light assembly vs 6) and very easy to follow. I did have to use a pry bar to get the camera assembly out, and used a ratchet strap to pull the mounting plate down to get the last 2 bolts in. That may be my fault, but the X-plate template fit smoothly per instructions, and the gate body gaps came out great. It also came with an extra mystery bolt but no splined lug socket. This mount looks great. I fell way more confident hitting some high-speed bump-jumps, and more comfortable about bumping the spare going down a ledge or even backing up into something. I think the install took about 3 hours at a slow pace and about 30-45minutes for the gate stop.
Extremely solid with tons of great accessories available! The install was simple and straight forward the only criticism I have is I wish the camera mount plate had some type of alignment tab or slot and I wish that it used counter sunk flush screws. The screws provided currently hit the wheel when mounting and if they were any bigger the Sasquatch wheel would not fit on the spare tire carrier.
I am very pleased with the overall purchase and installation was pretty easy. The company had one hiccup on packaging. The issue was caught by them before i received the product and I verified the missing items. They shipped them out and i received them pretty quick. I purchased this tire carrier for the strength, looks, and functionality. I am impressed with this product and would recommend it over any other style.
Heavy duty tire carrier for my 38s and beadlocks. Much needed for the added weight and looks sweet!!
Very heavy duty tire carrier. I didn't want a huge bumper with attached hinge. I like the design simple and straightforward. Enough to handle the weight of my 38 inch spare!
