    Review & Install Video

    I'm Ryan from extremeterrain.com, and this is my review of the Teraflex HD Hinged Tire Carrier with Adjustable Tire Mount, fitting all 2007-2016 JKs. This is the kit that includes both the carrier and the mount, but you can purchase these parts separately if you choose. If you're running larger tires on your Jeep and you have a full-size spare, there are a couple of issues you can run into from putting a much larger and heavier spare tire on the factory spare tire mount. The hinges of the factory tailgate can start to wear out, and you'll need to start lifting up on the tailgate every time you open it and close it. The welds on the tailgate itself can fatigue and break, causing rattling, and the factory spare tire mount does have a specific weight limit so, when you put a much heavier spare tire on it, you can end up causing that metal to fatigue and break as well. And there are a couple different solutions to all three of these problems. One is a bumper mounted tire carrier, and the other is a tub mounted tire carrier like this. I really like the tub mounted tire carriers because they allow you to open and close the tailgate in one motion with one hand, where the bumper mounted tire carriers first require you to open the tire carrier and then open the tailgate separately. Having a tub mounted tire carrier like this also allows you to run whatever bumper you want on your Jeep without being limited to the options that include a tire carrier. Now, this tub mounted tire carrier, in particular, is a very nice piece. It's one of the top quality tire carriers on the market. It has full adjustability, and it also has the price tag to go along with a top-tier product. But, in my opinion, it's definitely worth it for the quality and the adjustability that you get out of this tire carrier. As I said before, this kit is two pieces that are available separately but are really designed and built to work together. One is this T6 aluminum-hinged tire carrier that replaces your factory hinges and adds the reinforcement to your tailgate which means you don't have to worry about the welds on the tailgate breaking like you might otherwise have to. This is a really, really strong, solid piece. It comes covered in a textured black powder-coated finish. It's aluminum, so it's lighter-weight than it otherwise would be, and you never have to worry about it rusting. The hinges are designed to hold up to a ton of weight, and it's completely bolt-on. The tire mount is itself, again, is bolt-on, designed to work in conjunction with this tire carrier. And my favorite part about this, other than how well it's built, is the adjustability. You can adjust the tire up and down, and also in and out to make sure it's nice and tight up against the tailgate. Now, I like to run my tire as low as I possibly can to give me maximum viewing out of the back window, but also it needs to be high enough to not contact the bumper when you open and close the tailgate. So the up-and-down adjustment gives you the ability to set it exactly where you want it. The in-and-out adjustment is very, very important because, if you have the tire sitting way far out from the Jeep, there's a ton of leverage out there which can fatigue the metal, and it will also move and bounce around which will also cause that metal to fatigue. So this allows you to slide the tire nice and tight up against the carrier, bolt everything nice and solid, so it basically becomes the tire, the tire carrier, and the tailgate, all one piece. Nothing can move, nothing's gonna rattle, make noise or fatigue. Along with these two main pieces, you also get a mount which allows you to put your factory third brake light right in the center of the spare tire, which means you don't have to buy an additional third brake light. And it comes with all of the gaskets, the spacers, the hardware, everything you need to get this bolted together. As I said, this really is a top-tier product, and when you take it out of the box, you can really tell. Like I said before, this is designed to be completely bolt-on, which makes the installation pretty quick and easy. The first step in the installation is to remove your factory spare tire mount and, also, your factory third brake light, all in one piece. You will be able to take the third brake light assembly out of the mount and hang on to that because you are going to use it later. After that, you'll remove the plastic covers over your factory hinges, and then use some spare blocks of wood or wedges underneath the tailgate, between the tailgate and the bumper, to hold up the weight of the tailgate. You're going to be removing your factory hinges, and you don't want the tailgate to move around. You want it to stay in the alignment that it is right in the factory. Once the tailgate is supported with those wedges, you can go ahead and unbolt the factory tailgate hinges, and then go ahead and bolt on the hinged tire carrier. First, you'll bolt it on to the tub. Check for alignment with the tailgate, tighten down the hinges on the tub, and then bolt the carrier onto the tailgate itself. After the hinged tire carrier is installed, you will install the adjustable tire mount. That will install in the same bolt rotations as the factory spare tire mount. There are eight threader holes in the tailgate that hold that into place and, after it's installed, it's just a matter of putting your spare tire on and adjusting it. Again, I like to run my tire as low as possible without interfering with the bumper, and you wanna make sure that it's nice and tight up against the tailgate. In order to do that, you wanna put the spare tire on the mount, push it tight up against the tailgate, remove the spare tire, put the mount another eighth- to a quarter-inch closer to the tailgate, and then tighten it down. That means, when you put the spare tire on for the final time and tighten those lug nuts, the lugs will actually be pulling the tire nice and tight up against the tailgate. Again, the whole process should take you right around an hour, and you won't need any specialty tools. But, you will need some torque bits, a good socket set, and make sure you follow the instructions. As I said before, this tire carrier set-up with both pieces is pretty expensive. There are some bumpers with bumper mounted tire carriers out there that you can get both pieces together for about the same price as this. However, they're certainly not going to be the quality of this piece. You can rest assured that, no matter what size tire you put on this set-up, you're going to have the adjustability to make sure that everything stays nice and tight, and this really solves all of the problems of running a large, heavy spare tire in what otherwise would have been your factory location. As I said before, I really like this set-up because it allows you to run whatever bumper you want without being limited to one that has a tire carrier. So, all of that said, I have to say, this is worth the price. I know it's a lot, but I definitely think it's worth the price. There are some other carriers out there that might look similar to this one, but they don't have the same adjustability or the same build quality. So, if you're running larger-than-factory tires on your Jeep and you wanna be able to run a full-size spare on the tub, without the risk of damaging your hinges or your tailgate or your tire mount itself, I definitely recommend taking a look at this set-up. It gives you the strength, the build quality, and the adjustability that you need to run that large spare tire with the peace of mind, knowing you're not going to damage anything. So that's my review of the Teraflex HD Hinged Tire Carrier with Adjustable Tire Mount, fitting all 2007-2016 JKs, that you can find right here at extremeterrain.com.

    Specs. This Heavy Duty Adjustable Tire Carrier and Tailgate Reinforcement Kit from TeraFlex can carry a tire up to 37 inches - even in the most extreme conditions, over the must rugged trails, and with the most significant obstacles. You get simple, quick, and easy access to the back cargo area with just a single action. This kit spreads the load and weight of the tire to more than just the single hinge point, and incorporates the factory tailgate hinge mounting points to spread and separate the load as much as possible. The result? Maximum strength and durability. This kit does not require you to purchase an aftermarket bumper - it works with all OE and aftermarket bumpers alike.

    Construction. This kit is made from cast A356.2 T6 aluminum as the main component, which ensures the carrier is both as light and strong and possible. The finish and fit are designed to follow the flow and contour of your Jeep body, while offering extra mounting points for off-road accessories like recovery jacks and fluid containers. The factory Jeep tub offers incredible internal gussets and bracing that have no problem supporting the new tire carrier and oversized tires. The HD hinge brackets are created from forged steel and the HD 5/8 inch hinge pins are made from cold formed high-carbon hardened steel. The combination of the location at which it's mounted, plus the HD mounting rackets, means you get one of the strongest, rattle-free carriers on the market. Installation is a breeze and requires no drilling or modification.

    Application. This adjustable tire mount kit fits 2007-2018 JK Wranglers.

    Will this fit at 17×9 wheel with 35×12.5 tire? The wheel has a 30mm offset. If not, what would you guys recommend I do to make it fit?

    VCadi

    • The Teraflex HD Hinged Carrier with Adjustable Tire Mount will most likely need a spacer to allow fitment of a 35x12.5 with your wheel's 30mm offset. This will translate to approximately a 6.2" backspace, where we would like to see 5" or less for backspace with this wheel and tire size.

    Hello, I see that there is an option to add the Teraflex 3rd Brake Light Adjustable Extension Bracket to this kit. I am just curious what purpose does buying this product serve when the video for the tire carrier made it seem like the kit included everything already needed to readjust the 3rd brake light

    PatrickB

    • The Teraflex HD Hinged Carrier will have provisions for your stock third brake light mount, however depending on tire size, your third brake light may be obscured by the tire. The adjustable third brake light extension bracket allows you to adjust the mounting location of your third brake light to accommodate for a large number of tire sizes that would normally obscure the third brake light due to their height.

      Amazing Product ...

      This review is form a person that's not very mechanically inclined.... Here goes: I was very hesitant to purchase this item simply because of the cost of the unit but when analyzing the risks involved in not getting it, I decided to pull the trigger to have piece of mind and never worry about my spot welds, my factory hinges buckling, or my tire carrier dropping my 35 tire in the middle of the highway. The install took me about 1 hour. It was the simplest install ever. My tip is to watch the Youtube Video where it shows you how to do it step by step. My tips are, have the wood already prepared for when you take off the screws to hold up the door (watch the video and you'll know what I'm talking about) - have locktite ready - make sure when screwing in the new screws you do your best NOT to strip the head of the screws (do this by making sure the wrench is all the way in the head every time you're tightening the screws) lastly, the T50 that's needed is included in the package but I would have another one with more leverage for you to apply more pressure. The carrier is super easy to install once you have the spare ready to place on. All I would recommend here is to make sure you have another person to give you a hand in measuring and mounting. Finally, make sure your tire is pressed up against the carrier as much as possible. Final thoughts on the carrier is: It's amazing and works great because the other day my door swung away from me rather quickly and when the hinges needed to hold, they did. The whole Jeep moved but the hinges didn't even seem to flinch. This is when I knew this product works great!

      Best Tire Mount

      Jeep should have come stock with the Teraflex Tire Mount. It seems like Jeep knows that we like to customize our rides, but they shouldn't have poor quality components on areas that are standard parts of the vehicle like the tailgate hinges.

      Solid Carrier

      The Teraflex carrier takes away any worry about a heavy tire on the back gate. The install was easy, a couple of hours tops and only that long if you do any touch-up painting after taking the OEM off. The carrier looks great and is made very well. The tailgate is a bit harder to pull open as the hinge is tighter, but it doesn't close on you as easily either. The adjustable mount is easy to use and, for me, allowed my spare to ride a bit lower. The lug bolts are a little hard to install if you don't have a decent set of tools. Youtube that part if you've never set a bolt before. Overall, I love it.

      TF Carrier with Mount

      I switched from a tire carrier bumper to this and am fairly pleased with the switch. Fortunately I kept my stock bumper and am now back to using that however I like the idea of being able to now purchase many other bumpers without requiring a tire carrier. I also find myself using the gate more often now since it is more convenient to do so. Alignment was perfect and every piece seems very well built. I've got a heavy 35" MT on it so hopefully it holds up!

      Great For Those Still Bumper Shopping

      I was in a panic to find a tire carrier option for my 35"s and it was tough to find a lightweight, one-handed use, opener that wasn't part of a much more expensive, heavy bumper. The carrier is extremely heavy duty and fits like a glove so I don't have to worry about the rear gate warping over time. I opted for the 3rd brake light due to laws in my state. The carrier itself is a bit pricey, but it allows you to really hone in on which bumper look and options you prefer

      TERAFLEX HINGE & TIRE MOUNT A+++++++

      This product is top quality, I was very pleased when installation was completed; even though it took a few hours of install due to the fact I was limited to use of tools. I would recommend this product to anyone, the design is unbeatable and the workmanship that was put into it. Teraflex is a great company and has high quality products. One thing I would recommend when installing which will save a ton of time, is having a press machine to bang in the bolts to the mounting bracket, if I did not have access to this machine I would have given up. This product looks amazing and adds a nice touch to overall tailgate, it is very durable and there is no rattle or noise coming from the spare tire. I am running 35inch Toyo Open Country MT with Fuel Hostage Rims the total weight is roughly 120 pounds and this Heavy Duty Hinge Carrier does the job! This is a must buy product, you wont be disappointed !

      Happy to have a tire carrier attached to the tailgate and ready for the next step, sizing up to a bigger tire. Install wasn't bad, watch the video and make sure to follow the steps. Be careful that the plates in the tailgate don't shift, otherwise the holes will not line up.

      Very happy with this purchase once I got it dialed in the way it should be. No rattles and looks great! Pulling the studs through the plate was kind of a pain. Take your time and measure up correctly so the spare tire is snug. Other than that, it’s awesome for holding your 35’s, and I like that it will hold 37’s when/if I ever go up to that size. Well done Teraflex!

      Hinged Tire Carrier w/Adjustable mount

      Great quality as with all Teraflex products!! Install was not too simple, but in about 2 to 3 hours you can have everything ready to go with the proper tools. Make sure you get the tire as close to the carrier and body of the jeep as possible, I made the mistake of leaving a slight gap and it rattled almost as bad as the stock JK carrier. Torx bit and extension would definitely come in handy as well, as the provided one will take you much longer to use.

      Great Option for Heavier Tire

      Product is as advertised. After removing the stock carrier, I took the extra time to clean up the tailgate. Also, I took the time to put some primer and paint on the bare metal surface that existed under the stock carrier. After the paint cured, installation went with no issues. Mounted a 35" tire and it is solid. Be sure to have the interference between the tire and the HD carrier. The price is steep. That is why it gets a 3 on band for you buck.....
