I now have AR-767's with 4" backspacing including the spare. When the wheel and tire is mounted on the stock location the rubber brace/stops are probably 0.75" short of where they need to be to brace the tire,. What do people normally do to extend these stops?

I just deal with it.. That's why I'm worried about the weight of the spare... Not sure what to do to brace it better..

I had longer bolts and a couple pieces of thick rubber spacer behind the factory rubber bumpers. Worked nicely for me. I might be able to slide ya some.

Don't just deal with it. If the tire isn't snug against these rubber pieces it will allow movement which will eventually cause tailgate damage. Find something to extend them, normally folks just get a spare set and cut them down.

Lemme know how much you find a set for, I could use some fine tuning with mine since I don't think I'll be getting any kinda carrier soon. Really had to butcher mine and wanna clean em up a bit Wink .

I was going to suggest the hockey pucks as well. I think from the dealer the spares are going to run you a lot more than a couple of hockey pucks. With a little fabbing you won't even know they are there.

Yeah, it's not like you'll see them either. Cosmetically I don't think it matters much unless the spares off the carrier...........I've given up on cosmetics a long time ago anyways eyebrows .

Its amazing you should ask. Wink

This is what I did until I purchased my swing out. However I still have a need for my pucks because Im using them to make sure the top of the carrier doesn't wiggle by placing them between the existing top rubber pucks and the carrier.

I just hit the forum and requested the use of some old YJ pucks and paid 10bucks I believe, which included shipping from somebody who took his off to throw on a carrier.

OK I'm lost what's a hockey puck spacer? Is that the little black thing that gets kicked around all over the ice ? I looked through my 01 Parts manual and I'll be blowed if I can find the stock rubber tire stop thing either. Rolling Eyes

I think they meant exactly that. Just take a hocky puck and drill a hole through it. Wink

You just need something roughly 1-inch thicker to make up the gap space. then take a 6mm fine thread screw I dont remember the exact length, but its on that writeup.
