Swing Away Wheel Carrier Features
The ARB TJ Swing Away Wheel Carrier has been specifically designed to suit the new ARB
TJ Rear Bar. The wheel carrier has been design to retain the original brake light which is
mounted to the wheel carrier and sits above the rear wheel. Constructed from the
highest quality components this versatile wheel carrier will suit up to a 34 inch tire
whilst retaining the OE brake light. A purpose designed sliding wheel mount will allow
TJ owners to fit larger tires and different off-set wheels however the OE brake light and
mount may need to be removed.
ARB's engineers have developed a slam -shut locking latch and handle that has been
endeared for its simple yet effective operation. Like a car door handle the burst proof
latch positively locks the carrier to the step yet requires a minimum of effort to open
and close. A Heavy-duty gas strut is included to hold the carrier open and control its
motion when closing or opening on a side slope or incline. On more severe angles the
standard spring loaded locking pin holds the carrier open and prevents it from closing
accidentally. The ARB Swing Away Wheel Carrier is supplied with standard wheel studs,
but owners can purchase security nuts as an optional extra to prevent the theft of the
wheel. The wheel mount also has provision for a padlock to secure the mount to the
Swing Away Wheel Carrier.
Mounted using heavy-duty tapered roller bearings whose operation is smooth and
effortless, ARB Swing Away Wheel Carriers incorporate an engineered mounting point

    for the fitment of a Hi-Lift jack.
  • Will fit 34 inch tire with OE brake light or larger without OE brake light
  • Slam shut locking latch
  • Sliding rear wheel mount to enable fitment of various tire sizes
  • Mounted using heavy duty tapered roller bearings
  • Provision for Hi-Lift Jack mount.
