    The Teraflex Heavy Duty Hinged Tire Carrier Spreads the Load Out Evenly for Maximum Strength and Durability

     

    The Teraflex Heavy Duty Hinged Tire Carrier is designed to accommodate up to a 37” tire. The TeraFlex Alpha Heavy-Duty Hinged Spare Tire Carrier and Alpha Heavy-Duty Adjustable Spare Tire Mounting Kit will secure your spare tire over the most extreme trails and rugged terrain. This hinged spare tire carrier offers easy access to the rear cargo area in one smooth action. Using the factory tailgate hinge mounting points, you will be able to spread the load of the spare tire over a larger area for maximum strength and durability. For even more functionality added to your Jeep Wrangler JK, the Alpha tire carrier also provides additional mounting points for off-road accessories such as a recovery jack and fluid containers.   The Teraflex Heavy Duty Hinged Tire Carrier is expertly crafted with dedicated tooling and A356.2 T6 cast aluminum construction with a UV top coat. This tire carrier is made to be as light and as strong as possible, while its design, fit, and finish complements your Jeep Wranlger JK's body shape. Internal gussets and bracing in the stock Wrangler body support the Alpha tire carrier and oversized tire. The heavy-Duty forged steel brackets and 5/8” hinge pins constructed from fold formed high-carbon hardened steel combined with the factory mounting locations ensure you are getting the strongest rattle-free tire carrier available. With this Heavy-Duty reinforcement carrier supporting the weight of the tailgate assembly and spare tire, the Alpha tire carrier removes all stress from the tailgate.

    I installed this over two years ago, and it is holding up beautifully. I've had various configurations mounted to it and it feels as solid as ever.

    Awesome Well Built Carrier 11 months ago

    After moving up to 37’s I needed a new spare tire hinge and carrier. Since I take my German Shepherd with me a lot, my biggest requirement was it had to open with the tailgate and open easily. I decided to spend a little more and I am definitely glad I did. It was a breeze to install and works perfectly. I would definitely recommend this one to anyone who is looking for a new spare tire and hinge.

    Teraflex Heavy Duty Hinged Tire Carrier w/33's 11 months ago
    5out of 5stars
    Ed Bartles
    I guess my 33in tires are just heavy enough over stock that they would break the stock tailgate stop. After replacing the factory stop a couple of times, finally decided to spring for the Teraflex Heavy Duty Hinged Tire Carrier. My 17 year old son took lead on installing it. I had him watch the Tereaflex video for the install on Youtube. The install went just like the video and want to say it took us about an hour. Anyway, super happy with it, even though it seemed a little expensive. I guess you get what you pay for though.

    I should have bought this a long time ago. The 34in tire was causing the tailgate to rattle and bang on bumps. This solved all my issues. Very strong and all rattles and bangs gone. The tailgate now shuts solid and better than new. I highly recommend Teraflex and this carrier. Installs easily and performs great.

    QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

    • Q: Brake light  Jake2 years ago

      Will this carrier work with the stock third brake light?
      • 1 of 1 people found the following answer helpful

        A:  You can use the stock tire carrier with the stock third brake light on it with this Heavy Duty Hinge. If you also get the Teraflex Adjustable Tire Mount, p/n 4838130, it comes with a bracket that lets you use just the light from the stock 3rd brake light with it.
