Rugged Ridge Spartacus HD Tire Carrier Kit Reviews
Installed this two weeks ago to hold my 37" spare. The hinge reinforcement had detailed instructions but the carrier did not. I had to look at the pictures from the website to see how it pieced together. That said, it is a very well built product and looks great.
There were a couple issues with this installation. First it took a while for the unit to come as I waited over a month because it was on back order. Next there were no installation instructions for the tire carrier with the tire carrier kit. The rear brake light has to be mounted on the tire. So to change a tire, you have to remove the brake light, then the tire. Have to keep an Allen wrench on hand to remove the break light. There is no non-offensive way to route the wires for the brake light as they must pass through the tire and are exposed to the world. Lastly, the metal protective cover that is supposed to go on the back up camera mount is so thick, that you cant put the spare tire around it. So you cant put the protective cover over the camera and the camera is exposed to the world.
