    What do you mean? It's not set up for 5x5? A lot of companies make adapters if that's what you mean. They're just like a wheel spacer but change the lug pattern on the output.

    I was thinking if you changed out your axles later on down the line and want your tire carrier to match without having to use an adapter.

    I like the idea of keeping the tire close to the body if for no other reason than I think it looks better

    The disc plate is drilled for both 5x5 and 5x5 1/2 but it's ever so slightly too small to drill for 8x6 1/2. That said there's room to put a slightly larger diameter disc plate in the recess drilled to 8x6 1/2.

    When I say recess I mean the recess in the fuel caddy. If no fuel caddy then not an issue.

    Another vote for the AEV carrier. Very stout and as a plus keeps one hand operation of the rear gate.

    Thanks. They are Hodgman H3 or what I like to call Leakmans. lol they are definitely entry level waders I would not recommend.

    The AEV carrier with EVO facia is a great looking setup.

    I have it mounted to my stock bumper, it's worked loose a few times and the bottom bolt on the spindle fell out on once - a dab of blue Loctite and it's been solid since.

    I run the gas tank, with a 37 and the rear view mirror is basically a decoration - will be adding rear view camera.

    if you decide on the tank, use anti-seize on the tank mounting bolts. that tip was not in the instructions and when I tried to remove the tank I stripped out a couple of the nutserts from the tank (aev told me I should've used anti-seize ). not sure how i'll fix it yet but also looking for a way to mount roto-paks instead of the AEV tank

    the tank is nice that it's tucked up and out of the way but siphoning then storing the hose is a PIA, right now I bungee the hose in the bag it came in to the backside of the carrier (between the Jeep body and AEV tank). When siphoning the gas out, I can't seem to get it all out and that concerns me with allowing the fuel to go bad.

    I need to get some pics of the carrier but it's similar to all the others only with the stock bumper.

    all 'n all I like it but not 100% sure I'd buy it again.

    As for the fuel going bad what little that remains in the tank when you refill it I wouldn't worry. I wouldn't let it set in there for more than 2 months before I cycled it out and then refilled the tank. Jmo

About us
뱖ayoflife is a moniker that I뭭e been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
