Installation straightforward, darn thing is heavy. But it is easy adjustable and holds tire firm. All hardware included. Super happy with it. Got a good deal at auto anything and they shipped right away.

It is a pretty straight forward replacement, however, I did utilize A YouTube video made by someone else to validate bolt placement. People mentioned the bolts rusting over time so I cleared them with lacquer and used Loctite on the threads. Only real issue is I cannot get my 35" tire to rest firmly against the stopper It does what I needed it to do so no real complaints

Secure and looks good

Easy install though I need some help getting the first bolts started, then again as I lined up the spare on the carrier. No big deal. Overall I'm happy with how it looks and it is definitely heavy duty. With almost 100 lbs in spare back there, I needed this upgrade.

Got this installed a few weeks ago just in time for an offroading trip. Going from their Gen 1 Tire Carrier to this made a world of difference, and after a gnarly day on the trails it is still secure as can be.

The hinge is much heavier than I expected. I could have used an extra hand to hold it in place while I installed the 1st few bolts. The over all installation was easy and straight forward based on the instructions. Adjusting the tire carrier was tricky alone, but a little ingenuity made it work (I used my hitch mount gear carrier as a base and some boards to build a platform to get the tire aligned to the correct height and position.) Be sure to leave time to paint behind the stock hinges.
