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.

Stronger hinges with extra mounting points
Great reliable aluminum rear tailgate support and hinges. I’ve had this for two years now carrying my Dick Cepek 315/70R17 MT for a spare with my high lift jack with no hinge sag. My rear door swings and latches shut even when off camber. Quick easy install with no drilling. I went without the TeraFlex tire mount kit and used my stock. I may upgrade if I go to a 35/12.5 tire to get that extra clearance and strength. Very happyHelpful (2)

This is an excellent product. I needed something strong and sturdy to mount my spare 35 in tire and I didn't want something attached to the bumper. I used this along with the adjustable tire mount and it works perfect together. I wouldn't have done it any other way. These hinges are silvery strong and sturdy!Helpful (3)

Stronger than stock
Much more beefy than the stock ones. It is a little bit expensive. Hopefully it pays off in the long run.Helpful (3)

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.Helpful (4)

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.Helpful (4)
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.
Hello. I want to make sure I can reuse the OEM spare tire carrier with this product, including the third brake taillight. Please confirm. Thank you.
The Teraflex JK HD Aluminum Hinged Tire Carrier is capable of reusing the OEM tire mount and third brake light, as well as any aftermarket mounts and third brake lights designed to replace OEM.
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: 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
Can I use Barricade Tail Light Guards with this tire carrier? These hinges seem closer to the taillight than the OEM ones. https://www.extremeterrain.com/barricade-taillight-guard-jk-j100761.html
It will be tight but they will work.
I have the stock tire carrier on my Jeep and will like to mount my 35 spare tire. Will buying the hinge and using the stock tire carrier prevent any damage to my tailgate with a 35?
The Teraflex JK HD Aluminum Hinged Tire Carrier (07-17 Wrangler JK) will help prevent sagging of your tailgate with 35's mounted.
This has not been tested with a 38-inch tall tire. but with a tire that large you should look into getting bumper-mounted tire carrier. The weight of that tire will destroy the internal structure of the tailgate.
This is not adjustable and would require the Teraflex JK HD Adjustable Tire Mount Kit to have this function. This will work with factory and aftermarket bumpers.
We recommend lubricating all movable components to help loosen that up. You can also use PB Blaster before applying it.
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.
It can hold the weight of the spare tire.
You would need the Teraflex HD Hinged Carrier Accessory Mount found here: https://www.extremeterrain.com/teraflex-hinged-carrier-mount-jk-4838200.html to install a Hi-Lift jack (or RotopaX containers) to the TeraFlex HD hinged tire carrier mount.
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.
Thank you for your question! This would work in conjunction with corner armor since this bolts directly on top of the factory hinge.
The Teraflex JK HD Aluminum Hinged Tire Carrier can be used with no tire installed.
