After installing the bronze washer we set the tire carrier in place and secured it with a 1/2x1-inch bolt along with a steel retention disc and another bronze washer. We held off greasing it for now since this first assembly was just a test fit. Going by the instructions, we set up the positioning of the AEV tire carrier. The goal is to line it up properly with the tailgate housing and have it level and true to the Jeep but angled in a bit toward the Jeep if possible. Once in place, we snugged up the bolts.
