Installing a spare tire carrier for your 2007-'11 Jeep JK Wrangler allows you the advantage of hauling a full size spare and other accessories you may need while you're on the trail. But not everyone likes to haul fuel or other accessories. So manufacturers such as OR-Fab offer variations on its heavy-duty spare tire carrier designs.
OR-Fab spare tire carriers use a unique internal fender brace, allowing it to be mounted close to the fender, not the bumper. This offers a few advantages such as lightweight, and swing-away design that allows full access to the tailgate. Because it also tucks close to the body it also has better departure angles, and it's sturdy mounting point eliminates any noise or vibrations that are common with most spare tire carriers.
