Review & Installation Video

Review & Install Video

I'm Ryan from extremeterrain.com, and this is my review and installation of the TeraFlex Spare Tire Extension Bracket, fitting all 1997 and up Wranglers. Today, we're gonna talk through the installation of this bracket, which is a very simple one out of three wrench installation. This is going to bolt directly onto your Jeep in under a half an hour, but we'll talk more about the install in a second. We're also going to talk through the construction and a few of the features of this bracket. This bracket is going to be for those of you who want to run a larger-than-factory spare tire in your factory spare tire mounting location. This bracket is going to move that tire up, which is going to give you some clearance between the tire and the bumper when you open and close the tailgate. It's also going to add a little bit of depth to your bracket, so if you're installing a wider-than-factory tire on a factory wheel, it's going to give you some additional clearance. However, if you have a lower backspacing on your wheel to provide some additional clearance on the vehicle and you have a matching spare tire, you won't need to necessarily take advantage of that additional depth. Now, a bracket like this, while it will give you the physical space to mount your larger spare tire, you're not taking care of the other issues that come along with mounting a big, heavy spare in the factory spare tire location. Again, this is giving you the physical space, but it's not taking care of those other issues. Your factory spare tire mount is only rated to carry the weight of a factory spare tire. Those brackets are made out of stamped steel that doesn't have a ton of strength, and when you add a big, heavy spare on there that, especially if it's twerking around and moving, it can fatigue and break that metal. And when you add this bracket on there, you're actually increasing the torque and the leverage that that tire has on the spare tire bracket, which can expedite the fatigue and the breaking down of that material. So if you plan on running a big, heavy spare tire for the foreseeable future on your Jeep, I would definitely recommend getting either a tub-mounted tire carrier or a bumper-mounted tire carrier that is properly set up and able to handle the weight and the size of your spare. A bracket like this is designed for short-term use. If you don't have the funds or you haven't picked out that tire carrier yet, but you wanna have that full-size in place, this is going to be a good temporary solution. There are some other similar solutions on the market. MBRP, for instance, makes a similar bracket. However, theirs does come with a third brake light relocation bracket, but again, you're still going to have the same issue. Now, these are going to be far less expensive than a tub-mounted tire carrier, a bumper-mounted tire carrier. However, there is a good reason for that. Obviously, this is just going to be a small piece of metal. It's going to be a temporary solution. If you are going to be running that big, heavy spare, you are going to wanna upgrade your tire carrier. As far as extension brackets go, this one is built very well. It's heavy-duty steel, it's gusseted, it's fully welded, it's powder coated. And what makes this one a little bit unique, especially if you do compare it to the Off Camber Fabrication by MBRP version of this bracket, is that this will work for both a TJ and a JK. Now, they do have different lug patterns on their wheels, so this has some additional holes so that you can use it for either one of those vehicles. Again, it's not the strength of this bracket that I'm worried about. This is very well-built. It's the fact that this adds a lot of leverage onto the rest of the weak components, those components designed for a factory size and weight spare tire that becomes the issue. So getting this installed on your Jeep, again, one out of three wrench install, under half an hour. All you need to do is remove your spare tire off of your spare tire mount. You're going to set your new bracket over the existing lugs that are in that spare tire mount and attach it down. And finally, you're going to attach the included hardware to your bracket to hold your tire onto the new bracket. It's essentially the same steps as just removing your spare and reinstalling it. You're just putting this piece in-between your factory bracket and your new spare tire. Very simple, just traditional hand tools, and under a half an hour. As I said before, I think that this should be looked at as a temporary solution, and as a temporary solution, this needs to be inexpensive and it is. This is around $40, and you get a very well-built piece that is absolutely going to do its job for the short-term. Now, if you want to, if you're able to, you can certainly skip this step entirely, save that $40, and put it toward your full-time, permanent tire-carrying solution. But if you do need a short-term solution, I think $40 isn't bad for this part. So if you're looking for a bracket that's going to allow you to run a larger-than-factory spare tire on your factory spare tire mount, this is going to be a well-built and easy-to-install solution. There are others on the market that are priced right around the same price, and for a temporary solution, I think this is going to get the job done. So that's my review of the TeraFlex Spare Tire Extension Bracket, fitting all 1997 and up Wranglers, that you can find right here at extremeterrain.com.

This was the best bang for the buck.....I wasn't too keen with the fact that it sits out so far, but rather than spending much more for the swing bar, this was the way to go.

What product will work best with the mounting of the 5th tire? I recently went to Discount Tire and they stated I need to purchase a part to be able to mount the spare tire on the back of the Jeep. Do you recommend this product? Or is there another product that you would recommend for my vehicle. The size of the tire is 285,70,R17

Can this be used to shift the spare tire in the left - right direction rather than shifting it vertically? I currently have an aftermarket rear bumper with a spare tire notch. This works perfectly, but the stock spare location is off center on the rear of my Jeep TJ. Drives me nuts that he tire doesn't line up with the bumper notch. I know the tire will cover the the tailgate latch if the tire is shifted, but I have enough space to reach in there and work the latch. So shifting the tire won't be a problem.

  • The Teraflex Spare Tire Extension Bracket will move the spare tire away from the tailgate, but will not allow for up and down or left and right adjustment.

    Great piece if you have a larger spare. Gives plenty of room to fit my 295/70's. My tire does not stick out from the tailgate too far like some adapters do. Great products, love Teraflex!

    Spare room!

    An extremely useful and cost efficient method for making room for those oversize spares. Was very simple to install and took very little time. Improves the overall appearance as well as it raises the spare higher than the stock carrier. Overall was a good purchase and was very pleased.

    Easy Peasy

    Exactly what I needed moving up from the stock tire size on my Willys. Couldn’t have been easier to install. Up and out movement of spare seems to be perfect distance to clear bumper yet not too much stress on the tailgate. Really heavy duty construction. Very thick metal and very nice welds. With a modest price tag this is a great buy.

    Spare Tire Adaptor

    The Teraflex spare tire extension bracket was a great purchase for the money and it was an easy install. It fits to the factory spare tire with no problem. It takes about 10 minutes to put on and it it a one person job which makes it even better. The only thing that I was worried about is the weight of the bracket because it is made of a heavy duty metal. However it fits my 33x12.50 Deagon 38 mud tire easily.
