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 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.
The battery box is already assembled to aid in installation.
The installation instructions are a step-by-step guide to guarantee success.
Deleted from the full kit (SE-STK-1) is a brand new Trailblazer winch for hoisting the tire, the 2 ton scissors jack, the tools needed to change a tire and the canvas carry bag. You will need to provide your own.
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.
