    5th Tire Spacing

    Between the Rubber and the tire, does the rubber stop need to be touching the tire? or am I ok with this. Its the 33" Tire with the Mopar reinforced hinge and upgraded tire carrier. Thanks !

    Needs to touch. You can either buy longer rubber isolators, or there is a writeup on how to extend the stock ones on a budget.

    Looks good as long as that rubber is tight against the tire. Basically you don't want a big ass heavy tire rocking around and putting stress on the metal tailgate itself.

    That's why aftermarket isolators are ribbed for pleasure.
