JK Tire Carrier For 2007-2018 Jeep Wrangler JK

JK Tire Carrier



AEV’s Rear Bumper and Tire Carrier is like having a giant Swiss Army knife on the back of your JK Wrangler. It is the perfect solution for carrying all of the necessities for a successful overland or backcountry excursion. Our system begins with the Rear Bumper, which provides robust protection against highway and trail impacts. Included in the Bumper are dual 2.4 gallon liquid storage tanks — which are particularly handy on multi-day trips — and mounting provisions for our AEV Splash Guards.

Where our system really shines is with the chassis-mounted Tire Carrier, truly AEV’s most versatile product. Not only does it provide a strong, vibration-free and effortless means of carrying tires up to 40”, but it also accommodates numerous accessories such as our Hi-Lift Jack/Pull-Pal Mount, 10-Gallon Fuel Caddy, and a shovel.

Our Tire Carrier is compatible with the following:

  • Stock Jeep
  • Rubicon X / Hard Rock / 10th Anniversary / Recon
  • Winter Edition / Backcountry / MOAB / Call of Duty / Freedom
