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 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. 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. Product Features & Benefits: - Lightweight aluminum - Maintains single one-handed entry to the Jeep cargo area - Allows adjustment for up to 37" tire - Threaded mounting holes for mounting accessories (fuel cans, recovery jack, etc.) - Eliminates tailgate stress and rattles - Simplicity and Ease of installation - installation can be performed using common hand tools. - No drilling required. - Factory form fitting geometry and finish.

5.0Heavy duty spare
Easy install, did it by my self in under an hour. The hardest part was getting the peg into one of the three holes.
My son’s 2011 Jeep Wrangler was rear ended by a Full size pick up truck. The rear glass busted out of the hardtop & body was tweaked but all tail lights remained undamaged. My son & both of his passengers walked away unharmed. We even drove the Jeep home from the crash scene. The TaraFlex H/D mount & spare tire took the impact & redirected the force downward. The Jeep was totaled due to frame damage. We replaced that vehicle with another Jeep & ordered a TaraFlex H/D Mount first thing.
5.0Easy to install.
Instillation was easy. Secured my tire to the back of the Jeep eliminating the gap from the tire to the tailgate. Now my tire is kept connected to the tailgate without the ability to bounce and damage the tailgate. (And when I increase my tire size I just have to make a bolt change to accept the next size up!)
Thanks for the inquiry JAGER34, the TeraFlex Heavy-Duty Adjustable Spare Tire Mounting Kit part # TER4838130 spacers are recommended but not necessary, the weight of the tire is very heavy.
I have 1 2014 Sport, now with 33.2" tires, so I need a larger spare tire carrier. I want to have the 3rd brake light functional. How does this kit address the 3rd brake light? Do I need to buy something additional to extend that....? Thanks.
Answer this question
Mr. Matty, The Heavy-Duty Adjustable Spare Tire Mounting Kit does come with provisions to relocate the third brake light. It use the two open holes on your wheel and relocates the light and license plate to the center of the tire. Thanks, Don
