The Simple Engineering SSR Spare Tire Kit moves the battery box 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 25911640 and not a used or aftermarket part.
The battery goes into a new stainless steel battery box that slides vertically into a receiver that mounts onto the frame rail behind the right rear tire.
Included in the “Full Kit” is a 2 ton scissors jack (it really takes this heavy of a jack to lift the SSR), all the 1/2″ drive tools needed to change a tire and a handy canvas carry bag for everything.
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.
