    New EVO MFG JL HD Hinged Tire Carrier

    The JL factory tire carrier and tailgate was never intended to handle
    the loads associated with larger, heavier wheel and tire combinations.
    Many aftermarket tire carriers address this issue, but are complicated
    to install, require an aftermarket bumper, and add multiple processes to
    open your tailgate. The EVO MFG JL HD Hinged Tire Carrier is a body
    mounted tire carrier designed to allow you to carry up to a 37Ē tire
    while retaining your vehicleís one handed easy access to the rear cargo
    area. Its design is tough enough to handle the stresses associated with
    larger tires and simple enough to keep all the functionality your
    factory tailgate already has in a simple easy to install and operate
    package.

    The EVO MFG JL HD Hinged Tire Carrier is engineered for
    strength and durability. Itís made from 3/16Ē and 3/8" steel thatís been
    laser cut, CNC press brake formed, and fully fixture welded. In the
    factory configuration, the wheel and tire load is transferred through
    the tailgate to the door hinges. Knowing that this is the weak link, the
    Tire Carrier is designed to bypass the tailgate and transfer the heavier
    wheel and tire load directly to the hinges. The hinge brackets are made
    from the same 3/16 and 3/8" steel and are gusseted for strength with
    integrated bump stops that stop the weight of tailgate and tire when
    itís fully opened.
    The EVO MFG JL HD Hinged Tire Carrierís mounting points
    are designed to work with your JL by transferring loads to the JLís body
    in a location that is reinforced from the factory with multiple layers
    of strong, stamped, internal, steel gussets. The simple design keeps a
    low profile that fits the contours of the vehicle and carries the tire
    close to the body. Once installed, the tailgate will operate as before,
    maintaining the factory catch and the easy one handed opening, while the
    beefy hinge hardware swings smoothly with the added weight of a larger
    tire.

    The tire mounting position is engineered to be adjustable in movement up
    and down as well as in and out. This ensures your tire will fit
    properly, wonít rattle, and gives you departure angle and rear window
    visibility options. The EVO MFG JL HD Hinged Tire Carrier includes an
    integrated antenna mount. Install is simple and can be done with a
    basic tool set by any installer. Itís all bolt-on with no drilling or
    cutting needed.

    That looks really nice, and leaves options open for bumper.

    Looks tough, questionable which is easier to install, LOD or EVO. But one question: why not up to 40s? Does the body itself limit the weight of the whole tailgate and whatever is mounted on it?

    If you isolate the tire properly with bump stops you prob could carry a 40 on it.
