If you hop around on rocks alot don't expect it the stock unit to last long. Keeping the weight as close as possible to the tailgate eases up the amount of stress on your tire carrier. Plus you gain better clearance when you come off a ledge.


Thanks to those that have called and placed a order for these.

Possibly, but if you install our HD Hinged mount you wouldn't need the AEV piece. Sorry we just have not seen any customers try this combination.

Been a great carrier so far, tell Joe T that Tom from Minnesota is more than happy with his setup and if you want some pics with your carrier hauling a 39 Krawler let me know

Well I pulled the trigger on the hinge. I've been running just the adjustable mount with a 35" nitto trail grappler and the creaks and vibration just keeps getting worse. Last night, I took the spare off just to make sure that everything was tight. Its just too heavy on the door by itself. Hopefully the hinge will removed all of the noise.

I know my TF hinge is super strong and has no vibration or rattle at all. Makes the door feel more solid.

The hinge did the trick! ZERO rattle, creaking, noise of any kind coming from the tailgate/spare. THIS SET UP IS AWESOME! Thanks for putting out a great product Teraflex!

Great to hear that they have started to ship.....my friends in the pic are getting impatient!.

I'm headed to Death Valley tomorrow for a week so I will just miss my shipment. My new Hi Lift will have to go in the back for this trip. Please post pics of your install when you can.

Definitely looking forward to some pics with various accessories (hi-lift, fuel can, CB antenna, maybe some other creative ideas).

I've got the $200.00 replacement mount and just ordered the hinge piece yesterday. Hoping to get it installed today and stop the rattle and shake from my new tires.

Better yet, add the telescoping TF carrier to the mix, and use that instead. Or perhaps the Delta lug nut lights (which is what I did)...

What are you guys using to seal the unpainted areas under the stock hinges...some kind of automotive clear coat, or something generic that I could get at Lowe's?

Finally gonna have time to install mine in the next couple weeks (only had it since August ) and I wanna make sure I've got everything I need on-hand...

i saw where a 37in tire had snapped the metal of your tire carrier after about a week worth of use. is there a redesign in the future or a maybe a beefing up?

Your rig is black. I'd just clean it really well, tape off the area, and plastidip it. $7 a lowes.

i didn't touch it. there was no rust or corrosion there. the hinge (while significantly stronger - doesn't seal -- anymore so than the stock hinge did... so i just wiped off the tailgate and bolted it up.

we don't salt the roads down here like you guys do... but - the salt air does it's toll too... but there wasn't anything.. no pitting or anything... i figured why screw with it?

i do need to pick up some UFOs or something for where the bumpstops were on the tailgate... any suggestions?

i'm thinking we're missing a bit of information here. i just bolted this thing up three days ago (not this one - one of my own)... i cannot see how this happened without something being very loose or improperly installed.

i understand that failures happen, but having just installed this - seeing the quality of workmanship - and how stout everything is....

i'm thinking there's something behind the scenes we're all not exposed to... (between the folks that posted that photo and the manufacturer of the product)..

that's just my 0.02

X2... they've also posted a broken TF control arm... seems like it's been two bad posts about TF in the past couple of weeks.

There are definitely details that was not disclosed

That's what I'm concerned with...the road salt. Saw some peeps were using some kinda clearcoat or something and wondered what it was.

NFRs...I wouldn't mind using the Plasti Dip, but I'm worried the salt would scour it away over time. It literally gets into everything, and they use it on the roads up here all winter long.

Anyway, no biggie...I'll figure something out before install day. Just trying to get everything lined up 'cause I've got TF tire carrier, winch and JKS Quicker Discos to do all at once.

Now that you mention it, I'm gonna need a pair of those, too.

What about the UFOs made by Vector? I've got the ones that go on the hood in place of the windshield bumpers, and think they're great. Only addition I had to make was to paint the heads of the mounting bolts black...

Pretty sure they originally made the UFOs specifically to replace the bumpstop holes.

The owner of the broken tire carrier in question was supplied with a modified part from TF. This may be the redesign

just going off what ive read elsewhere. seems like it was a nitto 37 with steel rim and 3.5 in BS.

according to the specs on terras website it should have been okay.

Rubber stoppers or plugs of some sort?

I'm all for that...save me the hassle of having to remove the inside of my tailgate, PLUS save me some coin.

Good idea, way over priced.
This item is for more or less those who want to save weight. If you don't care about weight, then throw on the steel and watch your milage plummet. I'm putting aluminum products on my jeep as often as possible, my jeep is already heavy and slow as it is.

i have some rtv... i cut the wires out of the brake light stop... dumped that all together. probably not the brightest idea... i'll fix it later. been kicking around some lighting options to light the plate and the third brake light in the middle of the spare...

but i hadn't accounted for the holes covered by the bigger hinge. probably wouldn't hurt to seal all of them.

i see a trip to lowes in my future.
