    Review & Install Video

    Specs. The JK HD Adjustable Tire Mount Kit from Teraflex is made to be used with the stock hinge or a Teraflex HD Aluminum Hinged Tire Carrier, which you can buy separately or together as a set. Made from lightweight aluminum, this carrier allows single one-handed entry into the Jeep cargo area. It can be adjusted to fit up to a 35 in. tire (with the stock hinge) or a 37 inch tire (with the Teraflex HD Aluminum Hinged Tire Carrier), and completely eliminates those frustrating tailgate stresses and rattles. Made by one of the most trusted names in the industry, this is a kit you can count on.

    Construction. With threaded mounting holes for mounting accessories like fuel cans, recovery jack, and others, this is simple and easy to install. You use only common hand tools and no drilling is required. You'll appreciate the factory form fitting geometry and finish, plus the CAD-designed tooling that follows the exact compound curvature of the Jeep body. The result is a carrier with OEM appearance. There is no aftermarket bumper purchased required because this carrier works with both OE and aftermarket bumpers.

    Application. This Teraflex HD Adjustable Spare Tire Mounting Kit is designed to fit on the 2007-2018 Wrangler JKs.

    Please Note. This Spare Tire Mounting Kit requires wheel with 5 inch backspacing or less, or would need TeraFlex's Offset Wheel Adapter, part# 1055005.

        Does the normal spare work with this carrier? Also, is there a third brake light option?

        • Hello, yes you should be able to use your spare with the Teraflex HD Adjustable Spare Tire Mounting Kit and it does come with a bracket to relocate your 3rd brake light.

        Does the stock 3rd brake light easily attach ?

        Does this come with all the pieces I need to mount my 35" tire or do I need to buy more?

        • The Teraflex HD Adjustable Spare Tire Mounting Kit ( J17796) would be all you need to mount the 35's, however later down the road; I would recommend getting the hinge upgrade as well : Item J17795. To help support the larger tires, over time the factory hinges can sag due to the weight of the larger tire.

        I just want to move my aftermarket wheels closer to the tailgate similar to the stock wheel. Already know my 32 inch tire clear both bumper and third brake light. Can I use the stock Bump stops if I do this or do I still need to get the extended bump stops?

        • The Teraflex HD Adjustable Spare Tire Mounting Kit will reuse the OEM tailgate bumpers and will not need extended or modified versions of these.

        Helpful (2)

        Does this mount have the bracket to attach third brake light? If so, is it adjustable in that will it permit the light to be above a 35 inch tire?

        • Yes, this comes with (1) High Mount Center Lamp Mounting Plate.

            Excellent Spare Tire Kit

            Just what we needed to replace the factory spare tire mount. We got new tires and wheels bigger and this is an easy kit to install.

            Very strong and huge improvement.

            Before I got this, along with the Teraflex HD Aluminum Hinged Tire Carrier, I felt like I was going to lose my gate along with my spare tire. A heavy tire and wheel deserves a strong and sturdy mount. This is definitely the ticket! I never realized how weak and cheap the OEM spare tire carrier is until I pulled this beast out of the box. Easy to install and looks great too!

            Easy Install, just what I was looking for.

            I ordered this after putting larger tires on my Jeep so that my spare would sit correctly. Installation was easy and only took about 45 mins. The only slight issue I had was putting the three studs in the carrier plate. Since I did not have a press I had to use a hammer to set them in place. The two upper studs were easy but the lower stud is recessed and I had to use a large punch to get it to seat correctly. However, I was expecting this as it is shown on the installation video. After installing the carrier I could not be happier! Great fit and finish and it works as it is supposed to. If you are looking to upgrade your tires to a larger size and need an extended spare carrier, I would highly recommend this one.

            Installed for use with a 35" tire and 4.5 back spacing. The adjustability is exactly what I needed. If you follow the instruction and get it installed right you wont be disappointed. Heavy duty materials and great product.

            It’s expensive but worth the investment. It allows me to see more out of the back window. Also eliminated noises that I thought came with a Jeep being raised 3 1/2 inches.

            Nice and easy

            This tire carrier does exactly what it is supposed to and was a fairly easy install. The instructions were easy to follow only draw back is having to press the studs into the carrier mount itself this takes some creative engineering if you do not have a press available
