    Heavy Duty. The TeraFlex Heavy Duty Adjustable Tire Carrier spreads the load and weight of the tire to more than just one hinge point. Incorporating and using the factory tailgate hinge mounting points spread and separate the load as far apart as possible, resulting in maximum strength and durability. Dedicated tooling provides a cast A356.2 T6 Aluminum main component. This keeps the carrier as light, and strong as possible. The HD hinge brackets are forged steel and the HD 5/8" hinge pins are constructed from cold formed high-carbon hardened steel. The combination of mounting location and HD mounting brackets provides one of the strongest, rattle-free tire carriers on the market today. The TeraFlex HD tire carrier removes all stress from the gate by utilizing the HD reinforcement carrier as the load-carrying component, in effect it carries the weight of the tailgate assembly and the spare tire.

    Factory Fitment.  The fit and finish is designed to follow the flow and contour of the Jeep body, while seamlessly providing additional mounting points for off road accessories such as recovery jack and fluid containers. The factory Jeep tub provides substantial internal gussets and bracing that easily supports the new tire carrier and oversized tire. Designed to work with stock mount and aftermarket mounts such as the Teraflex JK HD Adjustable Tire Mount Kit

    Application: The Teraflex JK HD Aluminum Hinged Tire Carrier fits 2007-2018 Wrangler JK. The Teraflex JK HD Adjustable Tire Mount Kit is recommended with this tire hinge. You can buy both together as the Teraflex HD Hinged Carrier with Adjustable Tire Mount.

    • Hello, the Teraflex JK HD Aluminum Hinged Tire Carrier (07-17 Wrangler JK) will reuse the factory tire carrier, so you can still use the same one you are using now, if you like, you can buy this same kit, but also including a Heavy Duty tire mount, that would be the Teraflex HD Hinged Carrier with Adjustable Tire Mount (07-17 Wrangler JK) and you can find it here: http://www.extremeterrain.com/teraflex-hd-carrier-with-tire-jk-4838150.html or get the Heavy Duty tire mount separately, which would be the Teraflex JK HD Adjustable Tire Mount Kit (07-17 Wrangler JK) and you can find here: http://www.extremeterrain.com/teraflex-jk-hd-adjustable-jk-4838130.html

    Does this system stop the tailgate from opening too far? I’m currently having an issue with my tailgate opening past where the tailgate check strap should stop the tailgate. The plastic hinge covers get damaged along with the check strap pulling out of its assembly.

    • The Teraflex JK HD Aluminum Hinged Tire Carrier will help handle the weight of heavier tires and wheels, however this will not have any additional tailgate limiter built in.

    Would this product be sturdy enough to use with a bike rack attached to the tire carrier?

    jvk

    • Depending on the weight of the wheel and tire used, and the weight of the bike rack and bikes installed, you should be ok, however using a very large tire, such as a 37" tire with two or three heavy bikes would certainly push the limits of the Teraflex JK HD Aluminum Hinged Tire Carrier. Using conservative sized tires such as stock up to 35" and only one or two average weight bikes should have zero issues.

    Will this product work in conjunction with EVO MFG Corner armor for the 2dr JK?

    AllanJ

    • Thank you for your question! This would work in conjunction with corner armor since this bolts directly on top of the factory hinge.

      Great product, super simple install

      My son and I removed the old hinges and installed the new one in under an hour. The process was straight-forward and easy to follow. Recommendation: the larger torx driver they provide is shaped like a standard bent Allen wrench, which is very difficult to maneuver to remove the factory hinges and bolt on the new. Well over half our time spent was just with those 6 bolts. Save yourself the trouble and pick up a torx driver bit for a socket wrench and you'll easily cut that hour install in half. 4 stars only because of the difficulty with the included torx driver.

      Perfect!

      I got this for my boyfriend he has 35's. I recommend this for any tire over 33. He loves it and he attached the Hi-Lift Jack to the carrier. Its also a nice touch.

      Super Heavy Duty

      I was looking for upgraded hinges to allow peace of mind with a 35" tire hanging on the back. I use my tailgate constantly and did not want a set up that I had to open the rack then the gate. This set up is bombproof, very well made and looks great. The price was not so bad after I realized how well it works.

      Smart and super strong with great quality.

      Very happy so far. Safely packaged, excellent fit, easy install, robust and very well-designed. I carry a full-size spare plus a spare-mounted bike rack and up to two mountain bikes. Even with a 33" mud tire I never had serious problems with the factory hinges, but I knew I was pushing their limits. I recently increased my spare size to 34" (295/70 R17) and decided I didn't want to risk it any longer. I was a little hesitant to spend more than 400 on a hinge given the cost of many bumper-mounted carriers, but I really like the ability to swing the gate, tire, bikes and everything with one hand and one motion. I re-used the factory spare tire mount and did the install myself. This is a premium carrier and, although I have only recently installed it, everything about it so far indicates that it is still a great value even at its premium price point.

      Works Great

      I wish I had bought this a long time ago. No rattle at all using stock tire mount. 2011 2dr Sahara running Nitto Terra Grappler G2 305/65/18. Install is easy except the 2 inside torx bolts are very hard to get to. It's pricey but well made and worth every penny.

      Just what I was looking for

      Easy install. I used wood blocks to hold up the tailgate and sanded them to fit snug. Fits a 35" tire bfg km2 no problem. Could probably fit 37s safely. High quality and decently heavy. Nice powder coat.

      Product itself is excellent.....

      This heavy duty hinge was just the answer to the annoying squeak we had on our tailgate. I should have double checked all the parts before getting knee deep in the build.....turns out the package was missing a part. Customer service was quick to put in an order for the missing part but the annoying part is now I will have to decide if the rubber stopper is worth taking everything off again....

      An Excellent Tire Carrier

      This is an exceptionally well built tire carrier. I've been running it with 34's and a hi-lift jack for about six months, and have put hundreds of trail miles on it. No rattles, sagging, or any signs of fatigue what so ever. One of the things that impressed me most about this hinge is Teraflex's attention to detail... they even have rubber bumpers inside the two hinges that mount to the tub, that when you fully open your tailgate, you don't get a metal-on-metal clang. All-in-all the installation was a snap. A couple things to note: 1) if you are running the stock wheels, then you will most likely need a wheel spacer (~1.5") in order to get the tire carrier adjusted properly. 2) If you cut down the stock driver's-side spare tire bumpstop, instead of discarding it, your spare will sit really snug against the tailgate. This is a little bit spendy, but it is worth every dollar. Highly recommended.

      Solid product. Works great and looks so much better than the OEM plastic hinge covers. I'll probably replace my stock 32s with 33s so no need to replace the tire mount.

      Great install and well designed. Small issue with using the OEM bolts in the hinge. Mine are painted the body color, white, which don't then match any of the other bolts. I'm panting them black to match the hinge but including new bolts tha matched the rack would be nice.

      This product fit well and is easy to install. Only had it on with 35" spare mounted so time will tell how it holds up. It's a heavy duty hinge system and should be fine. I wish the 3rd brake light extension would have been the same quality.
