    Looks like Rugged Ridge should have picked a different jeep for their ad. Tailgate looks damaged and hanging low.
    Ha! That's funny. I didn't notice the damage.

    Maximus-3 Tire Carrier

    I've a Maximus-3 tire carrier that has its own hinge and which mounts to the same (very stout) substructure as the gate hinges. The company caters to the Rubicon special editions like HR, 10A, X, etc. Very strong, takes tires up to 40", no possibility of rattles if properly configured for your wheels (make sure you tell them the diameter and backspace). Compresses tire about an inch to make tight mount with carrier. Opens with the tailgate. 5 years now and still works like new.

Been on the tire carrier hunt for the past week or so and seems like so many options. Seems like body mounted carriers or a carrier that ties into the rear bumper would be the way to go for support. Been looking at tire carriers and tire carrier/bumper setups.

    I really love the look of the Genright tire carrier, seems like a setup like this would definitely be rattle free since it's not attached to the tailgate one bit. I could also run any bumper I like with this setup. Not sure if I like how this style of carrier attaches to the body. Not sure how well the rear corners would do if the carrier caught an edge dropping of a ledge or such. Obviously I don't plan on backing into anything but in the case of getting rear ended or if you did back into a tree or such I would imagine the body damage of the rear corners could be bad. I've seen the Evo carrier but not looking at replacing rear corners yet.

    Poison Spyder offers their Rock Brawler II bumper and tire carrier. Looks to offer pretty solid features and construction.

    Expedition One trail series rear bumper with tire carrier - looks pretty solid as well.

    JCR Shield carrier with Crusader bumper - I like the diagonal hi-lift jack mount option for this carrier.

    Any input for a rattle free solution? Thanks for your time.
    The AEV carrier would fit nicely on your HR. I’m happy with mine.

    Another vote for the AEV carrier. It will work with your current bumper. Carries fuel and jacks as do most of the others.

    I’ve had mine for 5 years and no issues, no rattles, and still smooth operation. That’s carrying a 110 lb spare and minimum of 5 gallons fuel the entire time over the five years.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve 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.
