Default spare tire delete

I want to get rid of my spare tire mount, does anyone know if there is a certain year wrangler that they make the spare tire delete that will fit on a 03 liberty?

Measure the distance of all of the mounting bolts and then search online to see if any will work because as long as the holes line up, it should be fine

Where are you planning on putting your spare? Or are you going to rely on luck and a can of fix-a-flat?

Just curious.

Are you just going to leave the spare wheel cutout on the rear bumper, or were you planning on replacing the bumper as well?

Only issue with that is you have to fab/have someone fab you one or wait a while for someone to make one
Either way you’ll be forking out some hefty money to make it look good

OK, that's fair. Gonna be a major PITA to get it down and put flat back up there.. but thankfully, really... how often does that happen? Not very often for most of us.
