    No you do not need a bigger carrier. If its a struggle to get it on you can buy an adapter to move it out and up but you wont really need it. And dont mind them your doing your research and learning what you can. I wish i would have asked this many questions when I started moding my JK. Breaking sh*t is expensive on these things.

    I had to deflate my 35 to fit it on the stock carrier and I regret ever running it on there as it made my hinges all loosey goosey and I've heard of It messing up ppls tailgate separating the spot welds. Basically it's a lot of weight for that lil guy.

    I would recommend upgrading tire carrier in the near future. You can get away with a factory mount but it adds alot of stress to your hinges. Before long you will be lifting you gate up to close it and then you will get to the point I am at where my hinges are cracked

    Sorry to contradict some of the replies but anyone who says you do not need a new tire carrier for 35's is wrong. A 35 is too heavy for the stock tailgate and will result in the welds pulling apart. I know this first hand. run a 35 on the stock carrier at your own discretion but i dont recommend anything bigger than a 33 on the stock carrier.

    I ran a 35 on my stock tailgate for 4 years. Only pulled it off because I tweaked the tailgate on a flop.
