    Opinions on AEV tire carrier

    Been looking for a tire carrier once I go to 37s. Looking at Evo hinge mounted, CC hinge mounted, or the AEV frame mounted.

    I like that the AEV also can carry a shovel, a fuel tank, and has mounts for lights, CB antennae and hi-lift/pull-pal. But, it's got to work well as a tire carrier first and foremost.

    Anyone have first hand experience with it and have some feedback?

    I've had mine for 2 years. No issues. If it squeaks I tighten it down and is fixed. I never ended up going with any of the extras. FB_IMG_1446943692701+%281%29.jpg

    I have had the CC hinge mounted tire carrier for almost a year. It's holding a 40" toyo on a Spyderlock so around 145# with no problem. I have run the Rubicon and a bunch of Colorado trails and it continues to impress me!

    I have one. It works.

    It rattles and squeaks which requires torquing things down periodically. Other than that no real big complaints. Some people don't like the offset look. It doesn't bother me. It's less noticeable the bigger the tire.

    I still need to get around to mounting an EVO facia and D ring mounts to finish it off.

    I love mine. The only thing is that your rear view mirror becomes kinda of an accessory since the tire is moved higher up and it also depends on the size of the tire and if you have the fuel caddy.

    I have had no problems with mine, I seriously recommend. I was originally going to get the terra flex HD carrier and decided against it. Im happy I got the AEV tire carrier instead.

    The AEV tire carrier is what I would run. The EVO hinged mount is still just mounted to the tailgate.
