Features & Product Details

Designed to accommodate up to a 37” tire, the TeraFlex JK 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. Our hinged spare tire carrier offers easy access to the rear cargo area in one smooth action. Using the factory tailgate hinge mounting points spreads the load of the spare tire over a larger area for maximum strength and durability.

 

Dedicated tooling and A356.2 T6 cast aluminum construction with a UV top coat, make our Alpha Heavy-Duty Hinged Spare Tire Carrier as light and as strong as possible, while its design, fit, and finish complement the JK Wrangler’s body shape. Internal gussets and bracing in the stock Wrangler body supports the Alpha tire carrier and oversized tire.

Heavy-Duty forged steel brackets and Heavy-Duty 5/8” hinge pins constructed from fold formed high-carbon hardened steel combined with the factory mounting locations ensure the strongest rattle-free tire carrier available. With the Heavy-Duty reinforcement carrier supporting the weight of the tailgate assembly and spare tire, the Alpha tire carrier removes all stress from the tailgate.

The Alpha tire carrier also provides additional mounting points for off-road accessories such as a recovery jack and fluid containers.

Teraflex Heavy Duty Hinged Tire Carrier ( Part Number: 4838100)
Great Product  4 months ago
5out of 5stars

I should have bought this a long time ago. The 34” 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.

Night and Day difference  7 months ago
5out of 5stars

Bought this in May of 2020, my factory tire carrier had cracked and I needed it ASAP. Luckily for me as always Northridge came through. This hinge is super beefy and makes a night and day difference. Packaged well, extremely well made, and looks great!

I think it is the best tire carrier out there 7 months ago
4out of 5stars

I researched a lot of carriers, body mount, bumper and hinged. After looking at reviews, comments and such, I decided on this one because it fitted what I wanted and had pretty good reviews. It came well packed and it is all I expected. Well made beefy enough and all the parts were there. It was an easy install, just follow the instructions and make sure your tailgate does not budge during install. It takes about an hour or so. There are a lot of good Youtube to help you out. I live where winters are bad, so I expected some rust under the hinges and I did have some surface rust. Note that under the OEM hinges, it is almost bare metal. So think about having some sand paper and paint. As long as you stay within the recess of the hinges, pretty much any color can do. I have had it on the jeep for about a mont, and so far so good.

This is a real must have for the Wrangler! No more rattle from the back door. Complete new driving experience. Took me 30 minutes to mount. Great!

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

  • Q: Brake light  Jake9 months 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.
