    EVO Tire Carrier (Brake and Camera Solution)

    Love my EVO tire carrier but hated the included brake light relocation bracket and exposed camera. I saw a lot of people opted for the MOPAR relocation bracket to eliminate the need to use the small torx for tire removal, but it still required additional tools and steps to remove the tire. I wanted to clean it up and simplify.

    What I came up with: use the EVO brake mount and bend it to mount behind the wheel. Then I took the camera cover and cut it off the stock tire carrier. Trimmed it for a perfect fit and put everything back together. While I was at it I dropped the tire down one notch for better visibility.

    Nice finished look. Iím not a fan of pulling off the camera cover just to access the spare.

    It doesnít have to be on there. Works just fine without it. The tire carrier housing has a bigger opening and the little cap closes it up.

    That looks really nice! How much did you cut off the camera housing?

    I cut it right where it meets the original tire carrier. Then I took a grinder and just ground little by little until it sit in perfect. Friction holds it real tight but I added a strip of emblem tape inside.

    Looks good.

    I did basically the same thing, but it is on my write up on Wayalife.

    Sure better than dealing with the tiny camera bolts to change a tire.

    I managed to loose one of them in my concrete driveway, can't imagine dealing with them on a trail with a flat.

    My camera is currently being held on by only 2/3 screws lol. No idea what happened to the 3rd.
