I may be wrong, but from the pics on here, the US KJ's have a rear bumper mounted number plate, and the KJ's over here have them mounted on the plastic swing out spare tyre cover .. so how does everyone re-mount the number plate (and more importantly its night light!) once you fit oversized tyres ??

Andy,
no need to change your set up, I have 245/75R16 fitted on the same set up you have. Obiviously if you fit wider tyres it might be a bit of a problem as it won't be able to close proparly. I slightly trimmed back the plastic cover round the edges, it helped closing a bit better.

Hi,

if you have a look at the link, you will see how it's been fitted. I bought my KJ with it already fitted on.
Here is the link: http://www.lostjeeps.com/forum/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=103&t=50814 might need to scroll down for the pictures.
