    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.

        5 Top Rated Questions

        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?

        • 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.

        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)?

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

        • Hello, unfortunately this will not work with the stock tire carrier.

        Can you hook up the 3rd brake light and the ring light assembly on the spare tire to use together.

        • Because both use the stock 3rd brake light wiring, you would likely have to choose one or the other. This is just the extension bracket.

        Why will it not work with the DV8 bumper? Its mounted to the door, not the swing out.

        • There are significant manufacturing differences between DV8 and Teraflex. This item is designed for use with Teraflex hinged tire carrier on 2007-2018 JK Wrangler.

            Great option

            Initially was going to go with the third brake light inside the spare tire as usually seen. But had added a back-up camera in that location and it would have blocked off the camera. This set-up has allowed me to keep the back-up camera where I wanted it and still comply with the third brake light law. Pretty much a winner in all respects. Typical Teraflex high quality and ease of installment. Highly recommended.

            Does what it's supposed to do

            It's a simple extension bracket. Everything fits right. Looks good. Could maybe have been a little heavier duty metal so it doesn't spring back and forth when you close the rear door. All in all it's good, and will do what you need it to do.

            Installs in 10 minutes. It does wobble a bit but that's due to the fact that it's flush mounted to the door.

            Teraflex extension bracket

            Over all it’s decent just had to drill holes to mount it where I needed it. It comes with preset holes for adjustments but it didn’t cup my spare as I would have liked so I did alittle modifications by drilling new holes. It also seems alittle on the cheap side for what they cost. I would have thought Teraflex would have made it a little stronger but the tire seems to hold it in place so over all no complaints. I installed a adjustable carrier with hinges from teraflex and my rims have a center cap so the brake light mount they provided will not work on the lugs unless I want to leave off the center cap.

            Teraflex 3rd Brake Light

            Bit more expensive that it should be, but my stock '17 Rubi came with the Teraflex tire carrier off the lot so didn't have many other options. Looks good though - and good solution to raise brake light when hauling my bike. Wish it was a bit more stable and didn't shake as much when closing the back door.

            Teraflex 3rd Brake Light Bracket

            This is exactly what I was looking for! My new 2018 Wrangler JK had the 3rd brake light mounted in the middle of the spare tire, but I wanted to cover the tire. My dealer hand no clue; basically said ‘that’s the way it is unless you replace the spare tire tailgate mount’. My Jeep came with a Teraflex HD spare tire tailgate mount (which they also had no clue about). So with a little simple research on ET’s site, I found the exact extension bracket to match my tire mount! The original screws were too short for the provided spacer, but a small adjustment took care of that. Easy install, perfect fit Take THAT no-know car salesmen!!!!!

            Perfect

            Ordered this after putting 37’s on from my 35’s and it works perfect. Only issue I had was this small little metal lip I had to cut off that’s used for someone who has a CB, which I do not. It was the tiniest modification I had to make. Other than that it worked great.
