    Review & Install Video

    I'm Ryan from ExtremeTerrain.com, and this is this is my review of the Teraflex 3rd Brake Light Adjustable Extension Bracket fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs. A lot of you guys are running a large spare tire on either a bumper mounted tire carrier or even on the factory tire carrier, and that big tire is covering up your third brake light. Well, in order to stay both legal and safe, you need your third brake light visible. And this is a high-quality, well-built, and adjustable third brake light bracket that will allow you to reuse your factory third brake light, which helps you keep the cost down. There are a few options for replacing your factory third brake light and putting a new light in the center of your spare tire or even in the lug nut holes. And there are some options that require you to cut up your factory third brake light to make it work on a new bracket. Something I like about this setup is it uses your factory third brake light without the need to cut it up, and the fact that it uses that factory light means that you don't have to spend extra money purchasing a whole new light. This is a high-quality steel piece that's covered in a black powder-coated finish, and as we mentioned before, the whole thing is adjustable to work with up to a 38-inch spare tire. Another nice feature about this unit is that it has a built-in CB antenna mount. This third brake mount is designed to be used with a bumper mounted tire carrier and not with your factory spare tire carrier that's mounted on your tailgate. The first step of the installation is to remove the factory third brake light from it's factory mount by removing the Phillips head screws that hold it in place. From there, you can install the third brake light into the new mount. After that, it's just a matter of removing your factory spare tire mount by removing all eight of the bolts that hold it onto the tailgate and then reusing four of the bolts to attach the new adjustable third brake light mount onto the tailgate. The whole installation process shouldn't take you more than 30 minutes, and you won't need any specialty tools, just some hand tools. I think you do get a lot of value when you purchase this bracket. The build quality is there. The finish quality is there. You even get the built-in CB mount. And my favorite part about this bracket is that it's less expensive than a lot of the other brackets on the market, because like we said before, this reuses your factory third brake light, instead of forcing you to buy a new one. So if you have a large spare tire that's covering up your factory third brake light and you're looking for well-built, inexpensive, adjustable mount that will allow you to reuse your factory third brake light but make it visible again, this hits all of those points and does it at a great price. So that's is my review of the Teraflex 3rd Brake Light Adjustable Extension Bracket fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs that you can find right here at ExtremeTerrain.com.

    Specs. This extension bracket by Teraflex is durable and also adjustable to help you keep your 3rd brake light visible behind your upgraded spare. It features a built in mount for a CB antenna and is designed to work with most bumpers that have a swing out tire carrier.

    Construction. When upgrading wheels and tires on your Wrangler, your 3rd brake light may no longer be able to reach past your spare making it difficult to see. This extension bracket by Teraflex uses your factory brake light and allows your it to reach past tires up to 38 inches.

    Application. Designed for use with Tera flex hinged tire carrier on 2007-2018 JK Wrangler.

    Does this come with new wiring or does it use all the stock brake light wiring? Is there enough play in the stock wiring to adjust to the right extension height (I’m running a 35)?

    RobO

    • The Teraflex 3rd Brake Light Adjustable Extension Bracket, is just the bracket. It will reuse the stock brake light wiring. With the Teraflex 3rd Brake Light Adjustable Extension Bracket and the Teraflex hinged tire carrier on Wrangler JK, you should have no issue with a 35" tire.

    Can this be used with the TeraFlex HD Hinged carrier w/ Adjustable Tire Mount #J20886, so you would not have to cut the factory bracket and place the light inside of the tire, keeping it above the tire like the factory has it?

    GaryG

    • Yes! This Teraflex 3rd Brake Light Adjustable Extension Bracket can be used in conjunction with the Teraflex HD Hinged Carrier w/ Adjustable Tire Mount #J20886 to keep the factory look.

    Can you use this with the factory tire carrier? In your video you show installation without putting the OEM tire carrier back on.

      This third brake light extension from Terraflex works really great with my Smittybilt SRC rear bumper and tire carrier. It took less than 30 minutes to install. When you purchase this, you might consider some wire flex to cover the wires from the Jeep. I would recommend this product to any Jeep owner needing to keep their third brake light.

      Third Brake light

      GREAT product with two minor drawbacks. Should come with a wire extender and rubber strip to eliminate vibration noise that's created from hitting spare tire mount...I bought weather stripping and attached it, noise gone.

      CHMSL brake light.

      Another great product from Teraflex. Easy installation, instructions came with it but really weren't needed. All holes lined up. It comes in a semi-gloss/matte finish, but I used a bed coating spray to match my OR-Fab tire carrier. 1 improvement I can see doing is drilling a hole in the back to route the wires behind. Another problem I noticed was with my Or-Fab/Rotopax tire carrier, the CB mount sticks out and will push in the Rotopax fuel container a bit. Over time I suspect it will wear a hole but a grinder wheel took care of that.

      Not impressed

      The bracket needs to be much stiffer. The rattle from the bracket hitting my tire carrier was so bad I had to use foam inside the bracket channel to minimize. It does get the light up high enough to clear my 35 tire.

      Good for what it is supposed to be

      The quality on this piece is great. One thing to know is that if you have the barricade trail force bumper, you will grind off the CB Antenna. The only real problem I found with the bracket is that it isn't sturdy, it seems to bounce back and forth some

      Brake light extension

      I installed the 3rd brake light extension on my 17 jk. Without the spare mounted on when you shut your tailgate it has so much flex to it that it slams into your rear glass. It makes it nice that you can adjust it for tire size but needs to be made out of heavier material

      Simple design

      A little pricey for what it is, however, a must have for anyone looking for a simple and uncomplicated 3rd brake light option after changing to a heavy duty rear tire carrier. Eliminates having to run complicated rewiring for a swing gate light attachments. I am pleased with this purchase.

      Teraflex 3rd Brake Light Extension

      This brake light extension works well. For my application we had to do some modification to the main bracket the attaches to the tailgate due to the tire carrier I have. Also it bounces up against the tire carrier so I am going to add some insulation to stop the rattling with that. If you don't have to work around the tire carrier it's probably a very easy install and a pretty good product overall.
