    I've temporarily scrapped the rear tire carrier. I think it's adding quite a bit of stress to my unibody. The rail was already collapsing in on the Clayton subframe on the passenger side and the tire carrier seemed to accelerate that process a bit. I put the rear section of the DB MetalWorx stiffeners on a couple months ago, and will need to fabricate something to help transfer some of the load from the stiffeners in the back to the Clayton mounts.

    I also cracked open the 8.8 the other day, managed to lose 5 of the ring gear bolts again. It doesn't appear that there's any damage to the gears themselves, so I'm just going to put some new ring gear bolts and Loctite and run it.

    When I ditched my rear tire carrier, the Jeep felt lighter. Having that weight hanging off the rear canít be doing the unibody any good.

    this brings up a good point.... at what tire size do you no longer carry a spare? I know a full tread BFG KO 35 can fit in the stock location, but why do so many not even have a full size spare besides they are a cheapass or dont want to carry it?
    I understand the read carrier stress and was thinking of doing a rear carrier but probably wont due to what you both said above, and I like it inside and dont mind the space it takes inside

    I keep mine inside now, just like I did before I had it on the carrier. Having no interior panels/carpet in the back does make it easier to fit a 35 back there too. The type of wheeling I normally do, I'd never consider going out without a spare. If it's a buggy and the trail is only a mile or two away from your trailer, sure leave it at the trailer. But that's not something I'm willing to do when I could be 50 miles from pavement.

    I was considering a rear tire carrier for some time, then with John's observations on weight and some new ones on unibody stress it seems I will bag the idea all together. I have mine flat in the rear cargo hatch since day one. I talk and talk about building something back there but still nothing done. Guess the PITA of pulling everything out on the trail to get to the tools under the spare is not bad enough to motivate me to finish my project.

    About the only way I would do a tire carrier on a unibody at this point is if I could hinge it at multiple points, and have them tied into some sort of cage. Basically have a hinge in the normal spot, but then also have one above the tail lights that ties directly into the cage, and have the latch be at the higher point on the other side too.

    I was going to mount mine to the rear factory hitch, but if you do the match the hitch weight effect of the tire and carrier will be higher than the specs for the Jeep, especially when you consider the additional force from bouncing on trails etc.
