    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.

    5 Top Rated Questions

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

    • 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.

    Security My spare is currently on the OEM carrier, but is locked on with locking lugs. How can the it be secured on this carrier?

    • 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: 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:

    I have this on my 2017 Jeep JK but it is very stiff to close. I bought my Jeep from a dealer and this was from the factory. I have a stock Jeep wheel on the carrier. Any recommendations?

    • We recommend lubricating all movable components to help loosen that up. You can also use PB Blaster before applying it.

    I have a set of 5 Toyo tires 40"X13.50 will this teraflex kit hold Up one of my toyo tires with a few inches adapter to clear rear bumper? What is the max punds this kit can hold Up?

    • This item is only designed to handle up to a 37" tire and the manufacturer does not specify a weight limit on it. But we would not recommend this be used for your tire/wheel setup.

      Great product!

      I was sceptical when I purchased this tire carrier out of necessity when the spot welds on my tailgate began to let go and it rattled. Due to the higher cost and aluminum construction I wasnt sure but based on others reviews I went ahead and bit the bullet. This is quite a chunk of aluminum though they used to make this thing. I'm not sure how much weight they saved over steel but I have no question in this carriers integrity. No more tailgate rattle and I dont baby the tailgate like it loaded with fine China anymore. Tereflex has my business enough for me to slap the included stickers on the fenders.

      Awesome tire carrier!

      Great product. Very well made. Very easy install. Would highly recommend as opposed to a tire carrier that must be opened first to access the tailgate.

      Quality product, easy install

      I purchased this carrier to support the weight of a rack and two bicycles, in addition to a 33" tire. Installation was simple - just follow the comprehensive directions. Now the tailgate closes with authority, and no worries about the original hinges sagging over time. The quality makes it worth the price!

      Well built, easy install

      I installed this in approximately an hour in my garage. Very straightforward, instructions are more of a formality. By far the most difficult part was hoisting my 37" spare from the ground to mount it on the adjustable carrier. The only thing I can knock this carrier for is the fact that it is PRICEY. I'm sure it's worth it, but right now I'm having a difficult time accepting the fact I paid over $700 for the hinges and actual carrier. Bumper/tire carrier combos can be found for that price. Still, I thoroughly enjoy the look and strength of this carrier along with the easy install. It holds my spare tightly against the tailgate with little, if any room for movement. Hopefully as I stew over the price I continue to enjoy it instead of wishing I'd gotten a bumper and a tire carrier.

      Bought this to go with the TeraFlex door hinge. It is sturdy and rick solid. Easily holds my 35 inch tires and carries the weight with no issues. Was able to adjust the tire so it hugs the door. Highly recommend.

      Carrier supports Larger tires

      I put 35" Toyo's on my Wrangler, with MT wheels. Very heavy combo. This carrier, along with the adjustable tire mount was easy to install, and supports all of the added weight. Saves buying a whole new rear bumper!

      Yes, the product is on the expensive side, especially considering the competitions, but well worth the cost. Well made with durable materials, fits like a glove (and they even give you a spacer to use to keep your alignment of the rear door during installation. They really thought of everything), good instructions, and simply works as advertised. Great product.

      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.

      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.

      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.
