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 2007-2017 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

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?

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

    Great alternative

    This product does exactly as described. Fixed my spare tire rattle and I am much more comfortable having my 305/70 r17 nitto terra grappler on there. It is a great alternative to other, more expensive tire carriers. The design is very intuitive and fits like a glove. Installation does take some time, but instructions are thorough and do a very good job at describing how to install. Only drawback was the price. I would recommend this product to anyone not willing to pull the trigger on a more expensive carrier.

    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.

    Very HD!

    I am very happy with this product. It arrived packaged well with no dents, dings or scratches. The fit and finish was perfect from the factory and it is very easy to see this is a high quality product. All the instructions made it very easy and were very specific. Installation was a breeze doing it by myself. I would highly recommend this product to anyone wanting to switch out the factory tailgate hinges for something more heavy duty and quite frankly should come standard with something of this quality. I wish I would have ordered it sooner, but waited till the hi-lift mount was back in stock.

    Teraflex JK HD Aluminum Hinged Tire Carrier

    one word AWESOME!!!! My 2015 Rubicon started making noises from the tailgate within a month after purchase. Of course the factory hinges holding the tailgate and a 35" Tire with 20" wheels didn't help. The factory hinges are no better than a belt buckle with wire hangers with that situation. Installed the Teraflex Carrier and walla! Instant solid performance and no more noises from the tailgate. No more worry about hinge welds busting or the noise getting worse.. ! Awesome product!!!

    Solved My squeaking problem.

    This tire carrier is a great solution to the tailgate rattling and squeaking. The product feels like it was made out of high grade material and is very well constructed. I had a very bad squeaking and rattle from from my tailgate because of my oversized tire on the back. This was easy to install and my tire no longer vibrates when hitting a bump. I would by this product again.

    Solved the Problem!

    Shortly after I installed 35 inch tires on my 2008 Unlimited Jeep Sahara and put the spare on the rear gate the gate started this obnoxious rattle. It was so bad I had to remove the spare from the gate and place it in the back cargo area. I have a matching set of after market bumpers already and did not want to replace them, the TeraFlex Heavy Duty Adjustable Tire Carrier seemed to be a logical choice. A little pricey, but it solved the problem and thus well worth it. I am not a "gear head" and do not do a lot of jeep modifications etc... but I handled this one in less than an hour pretty much by myself. The directions were easy to follow and with just a little issue getting the right leverage on the bolts with the loctite on them, I finally removed the factory hinges, put on the new TeraFlex one, and presto-change-o no more rattle! The shipping was fast and the ordering was problem free. I will use Extreme Terrain again as well as consider the quality products from TerraFlex.

    Beefy goodness

    This is not some cheap hinge replacement. It's very heavy duty. I previously worried that carrying my 34" spare with some other accessories would bend the gate. Not anymore. This is one tough hinge. Add the fact that you can buy other accessories that simply bolt onto it like a Hi-Lift carrier and Rotopax mounts and the only question left is why didn't I buy it sooner.

    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....

    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.
