Slee-Carrier ™ Mounted on TJM rear bumper
After trashing the plastic corners of the stock bumper, we decided to upgrade to an aftermarket bumper. We liked the TJM bumper for it complimentary lines. However we did not like the tire carrier they supplied. We needed some custom options as well as a 2″ receiver that did not hang down below.
The tire carrier was designed to accommodate a 35″ tire, ham radio antenna and backup light. It latches to the replacement 2″ receiver for a firm and rattle free locked position.
The receiver pivots on the standard hubs already welded into the TJM bumper.
