The Simple Engineering SSR Spare Tire Kit moves the battery out from the center of the frame rails and allows installation of a standard Trailblazer spare tire winch. The winch provided is brand new, genuine GM and not a used or aftermarket part.
The battery goes into a stainless steel battery box that slides vertically into a receiver that mounts onto the frame rail behind the right rear tire.
Included in the kit is a 2 ton scissors jack (it really takes this heavy of a jack to lift the SSR) and all the tools needed to change a tire.
The kit is complete and the battery box is assembled to aid in installation.
The installation instructions are a step-by-step guide to guarantee success.
Please note that the Spare Tire Kit is guaranteed compatible with the “stock” exhaust system. Aftermarket exhaust systems must have an “outboard jog” on the driver’s side tailpipe to clear the spare tire when installed. Any aftermarket exhaust that does not have the extra room for the tire will need to be modified similar to the OEM tailpipe.
