I'm looking to run 35s. How exactly does this work, from the pictures it looks like you put a spacer between the tailgate and carrier. Wouldn't this leverage be worse? With 35s would it be a safer bet just to go with the teraflex carrier or are there other options?

depending on ur backspacing, a rear tire with 33's will fit without any issues. the only issue u might have is that if you plan on using some sort of spacer for extension purposes, the added weight may damage the tailgate due to stress. Avoid this if possible.
I put 35's on my stock jku rack with no issue. I was going to get a new stronger rack to support the added weight- do you have any suggestions?

NYEDC108 If you use a 33" tire do you need to use a terra flex tire carrier?

I'd like to do a 33 with 20 rims!
