Product of the Week – Excessive Industries Gate Keeper

excessive-industries-wrangler-jk-high-clearance-rear-bumperThis week, we're taking a look at a new product for the Jeep Wrangler JK Unlimited by Excessive Industries! Based out of Southern California, Excessive Industries couples unique styling with dependability, and offers products for the weekend-warrior or dedicated trail rig. Most Jeep Wrangler owners, especially generations prior to the redesigned Jeep Wrangler JK, use an aftermarket swing-out carrier or omit the spare tire altogether when upgrading to a 33-35" tire or larger. This product takes a different approach, and features a little baja influence, tucking the spare tire up behind the rearmost section of the Jeep, and removing the extra overhang from the back end.excessive-industries-gatekeeper-wrangler-jk-tire-carrier-orangeWhile the design may seem a bit odd to some, especially in areas where mud-bogging or forest service roads are more common than rock gardens or desert sand, the Gate Keeper Tire Carrier is invaluable when it comes to the departure angle of your Jeep JK Unlimited! For example, when coming off of a boulder or sharp ledge, the spare tire can become hung up, leading to tailgate and body damage. To keep the tail-end of your Jeep Wrangler JK Unlimited from hanging up on rocks or terrain in a scenario such as this, the Gate Keeper removes the tire from the OEM tailgate and places it at an angle, behind the rear seat. This keeps the tire where it's easily accessible, and still leaves plenty of room for cargo and equipment in the rear of your Jeep Wrangler JK Unlimited!excessive-industries-gatekeeper-wrangler-jk-tire-carrier-redThe Excessive Industries Gate Keeper Tire Carrier ships raw, but if you desire a strong and durable powdercoat, give us a call! This product is capable of carrying up to a 37" spare tire, and features an adjustable mount so that the carrier will work with a variety of wheel and tire combinations, including those aftermarket wheels with differing offsets. If you've got larger than a 37" tire on your Jeep JKU, this carrier will still work, but some modification may be required to the roll bar and padding. Another neat feature are the accessory mounting panels, which enable you to mount virtually anything to the Gate Keeper carrier, including a Hi-Lift Jack (pictured above). The Gate Keeper works with both the soft and hard top, ensuring you a durable carrier, no matter the top configuration on your JK!excessive-industries-gatekeeper-wrangler-jk-tire-carrier-37-inch-tireCurrently, Excessive Industries offers this product just for the Jeep Wrangler JK Unlimited; however, plans are being made regarding the 2-door Jeep Wrangler JK, as well as the Jeep Wrangler TJ. Give us a call, or stay tuned to the blog for more information! Next week, we'll take a look at the unique Jeep Wrangler JK and JK Unlimited bumpers from Excessive Industries, featuring built in Hi-Lift Jack points, and more!excessive-industries-gatekeeper-wrangler-jk-tire-carrier-in-cab
