Owners of the 2007 and Newer Jeep Wrangler JK who add larger tires and wheels to their vehicles will find that mounting an oversize spare on the stock tire carrier presents a problem. Different wheel offsets space the tire away from the factory rubber stops mounted on the tailgate, which causes annoying rattles and additional stress on the tire carrier.
Daystar’s replacement Tailgate Bump Stops kill the rattles permanently. Constructed of Daystar’s unique EVS foam, the Tailgate Bump Stops are a direct replacement for the factory pieces. The Daystar stops thread into the factory locations on the tailgate and are designed to accommodate all tire and wheel packages; simply trim them to fit snugly against the new spare tire. Daystar’s Tailgate Bump Stops require no tools and install in moments. Available in black, the bump stops are sold in pairs (enough for one vehicle). They are an inexpensive solution to a highly annoying problem.
