The Rebel Off-Road Bak-Pax spare tire delete kit is the perfect way to keep your 07-17 Jeep Wrangler JK tailgate looking clean and organized once you've removed your spare tire and mount.
This kit allows you to mount (Qty 2) Rotopax 2 gallon fuel, diesel, water, first aid or storage containers on your tailgate, giving you easy access to spare fuel, water, or first aid supplies. The top-mounted accessory rail also lets you attach communications antennas or rear-facing lights, while the removable license plate mounting bracket lets you keep your factory camera in place (if applicable).
For those with a relocated or removed spare tire, this is the perfect accessory to fill its place! With a pre-drilled top mounted accessory rail, you can easily bolt up to 4 antennas, rear facing work or amber (for dust or fog) lights or any bolt on accessory you can think of. Also comes with removable license plate mounting bracket.

Powder Coated Textured Black - BakPax are sandblasted, pre-treated with 4 stage iron phosphate wash with deionized water rinse. They receive a basecoat of zinc rich primer and then are shot with a top coat of black fine texture.
All u get is the top of the line weldes plate & license bracket, be prepared to buy the rotopax separately ($120 for 2) & theres no 3rd light harness included, so u gotta figure that out that as well.
It really cleans up the rear end of the Jeep nicely and flows great with a fastback top !! Super easy installation and loving the extra mounts for lights and whips !!!
The product is very well built and very easy to install. 3 gallon rotopax don't fit well but the 2 gallon fit perfect.
The Bak Pax from Rebel Offroad is a great (the best?) option for a spare tire delete. It adds a unique look to the rear of the Jeep, provides mounts for an antenna and two lights plus also creates extra space for fuel or water with the addition of two Rotopax. The two reasons that dropped this from a 5 to 4-star product are because I bought the version that comes with a license plate delete kit and unfortunately, there were no instructions on how to re-wire both the license plate kit and the rear tail light. I ended up scouring the internet for how to do this best and thankfully found some answers. It just seems like Rebel could have easily provided this kind of info since I'm sure they know exactly how to re-wire everything. The other reason is that the supplied wingnut that holds the license plate to the Bak Pax rusted IMMEDIATELY. It doesn't make sense to me to use a metal that rusts so fast on a product that will always be outside the Jeep. These are somewhat minor gripes, but I felt like they were important enough to share and address. Keep making things in the USA Rebel!!!
Over all very pleased. Very well engineered, only item was the “Rebel OffRoad” plate on carrier was lose. 2 second fix.
