Only you can decide which is the best path to take. Im running 315/70-17 duratracs on my new jeep and just didnt want to risk any tailgate damage so opted for TF hinge/carrier.
I can tell you that the hinge/carrier was easy to install, used locktight on all the screws and its a beefy unit for sure. Well constructed and worth the money in my opinion.
