First I will state I ordered this tire carrier through 4wheelparts.com who ordered it directly from JCR according to my communicatios and email records. I went through 4wp because I was able to save $50. The tire carrier alone is $800+ which I did not realize when I first purchased my JCR rear bumper. I have front and rear bumpers from JCR and believe they have great build quality. My dissatisfaction in the tire carrier comes from three things. First is the price. $800 is steep for a carrier but ok. Second the carrier has paint chips all over it. Pictures were taken. Mishandled maybe in transit but for $800 would be nice not to have to repaint sections myself. Justin
Overall Im very happy with the shield tire carrier but I did run into a few issues. Some of the hardware that came with it were different than what is shown in the installation video. Also a few of the hardware pieces did not fit my 98 TJ and I had to make a few trips to the bolt store to find what I needed. Other than that everything went smooth. lance
