What's interesting about the video is Teraflex saying they 'only recommend a 35inch tire'...even though there are holes provided for a 37" tire. I hadn't heard that on the video before, or maybe I wasn't paying attention.

|NYEDC108||The whole carrier was teraflex and the bottom bolt of the three snapped. I pounded it out and replaced it. Gotta go in and erase some old pics.|

You're required to use Photobucket or some other photo sharing service to post pics on the forum.
I'm confused, what actually broke? Was it bolts on the adjustable carrier, or are you using the stock carrier with the TF hinge? The video you posted was the standard installation video, it doesn't really address 'fixing' bolts that are installed incorrectly. More info, please.

So a thread broke on my carrier and my tire was boy cinching around like crazy so I removed it called teraflex and explained issue. Carrier was on my truck 2013 truck 3 months. The customer service was good they sent the parts out immediately 3 thread bolts. They sent me a link to a video on how to repair it. Here is the video
The instructions were spot in so so I took some pics. This thread mentions some people who had installed bolts wrong wayang need to remove them here is how I removed my bolts.
Website says I can't post anymore pics so when I fiquire it out ill post them otherwise if you need help pm me and I'll email you pics

Also the bend in the mount plate at the top if the cylinder weld is normal and will straighten out when the tire is mounted.
35" toto AT2 on 17" rugged ridge rim with studs in the "35 holes" is a good 1 1/2 to 2 inches above the cutout in the bumper. Wish I had gone with the "33" holes now.

I got my hinge and adjustable mount today and I have to say I'm kinda disappointed. Not the quality I was expecting for $600. I'll be calling them tomorrow to discuss why the top of my adjustable mount is bent inward, like toward the Jeeps window where the upper two studs are pressed in. The other issue is I CANT even freaking use the darn thing because the slot on the adjustable carrier mount is not wide enough for the supplied long bolts to fit into. They only barely fit at the very end by the tailgate which pins the adjustable part very close to the tailgate and too close for my wheel tire! What is the deal?
Those two grade 5 bolts that are 5/8th's I think with two washers and a locknut simply are too large a diameter to fit through the outer slots in the mount part of the adjustable mount. The slot cut into the sliding wheel plate is wide enough but what the hell?
Anyway now my spare will be hanging out in my garage unless I take the adjustable mount off and reassemble the stock mount. What a disappointment.
There also is extra hardware that the (horrific) instructions don't mention. Wow, lets hope customer service can turn this around.

I've had the hinge for 9 months, and the adjustable mount for about 3 months with probably 6000 miles, and no vibration.
|10-20-2013 09:40 PM|
I have about 2000 miles on my carrier and today the tire on back started vibrating with every bump in road. It is quite annoying! Wondering is it the tire on the carrier that needs to be tightened or another part of carrier? Help before it gets worse and does damage.

|Hawaii 5-0||I ordered the Teraflex cb mount for my HD carrier. I did not need a grounding strap. My installer had to file off some of the powder coating in the bottom side before He installed the antenna stud. Got good SWR. When I got home I touched up the bracket with clear lawyer to prevent rust.|

|brighton||I'm planning on installing a Firestik antenna to the accessory hi-lift mount. I'm not sure how well grounded the mount and hinge are. I'll be removing the powdercoating on the mount for the stud but don't know if I should plan on adding a grounding strap to the tailgate. Who's installed a CB antenna to the accessory mount and what have you done?|

|jadmt||4wd.com $399 shipped. check out the 4wd.com rep on jk-wrangler dot com. best price by far and recieved mine in 2 days.|

My guess is you purchased the TeraFlex hinged hinge and the adjustable carrier combo since you paid $620.00. My purchase was for just the hinged hinge alone.

Forgot to mention that I paid $463.99 and shipping was Free.

Got one here at eBAY the other day for $463.99. Seller was Discount Tire. Go to the eBAY listing showing $474.99 and type in $463.99 (you could try offering less $) in the make an offer space. My offer was immediately accepted and I purchased. Item arrived about 4 days later via UPS. I had to sign for it when UPS delivered it.

Almost forgot, my hinge pins don't look like other pictures I've seen. Does anyone know when they changed. Wondering if it's a genuine improvement or a cost cutting measure.
That's oil around the pin. Hopefully some of it will soak in.

The accessory mount is steel. I made a back plate that's a few inches wider and bolted the accessory mount to it. Now I can carry a three gallon roto pax and open the door all the way. This was possible because I'm running 33's. 35's would probably work, but nothing bigger.
My hinge and tire mount worked out great. Very simple install and super solid. I bought mine from Teraflex. Very happy with the set up.
