Lol it'll hold over until you decide its time.

Looks like with the RR bumper, I won't have to worry about getting the TF mount to raise it higher.

JimmEC Some things I noticed with my set up that might help someone else:

The rear bumper I have is the rugged ridge xhd modular matching. It has a deep space for spair tires. The teraflex hd carrier has settings for stock tire. Because of this bumper, you may set your 35 on the stock size setting and it still has pleanty of space. This, in turn, will give you more window space. I will show a picture of the adjustment soon.

With this tire carrier, it has holes for the teraflex third break light adaptor. If those holes are drilled just slightly bigger, the delta lug nut lights fit nicely.

JimmEC Yes, it replaced the stock one. I don't know what your state laws are there. Texas you dont need a third break light.

Yeah, it would be nice to have more power, just in case.

I had to look this up. Does this actually replace the third brake light (legally)? I'm using the stock tire mount with the TF hinged carrier and my spare pretty much covers up the brake light so I need to find some type of replacement.

JimmEC Just finished installing the frescoes tailgate thing. I put it on the 35 setting but my bumper compensates for big tires so I might relocate it to the 33 setting to give me more window.

Every time I do a mod adding weight or now with bigger tires I seem to drive even slower, to where I feel like I'm driving like a grandma now. Knowing that my Jeep is never going to outrace anyone is actually somewhat relaxing and less stressful.

I still have my 3.73 gears (manual) with 35's and I find myself having to downshift a lot more, especially merging on the freeway. I think I'm about ready to regear to 4.88 and add lockers. Even with these gears though, it has more pep than my old Land Cruiser which was way underpowered for its weight.

Waiting on that to come in.

I cannot freaking wait.

Yeah, I cannot believe this isn't stock.

brighton What a great day tomorrow will bring. Line-x turned out great.

I have the TF hinged carrier to go with my 35s and I have full confidence in it.

Smokinjoe [QUOTE=Kssting;3395402]You should be fine with the TF carrier. I believe there has only been one report of a break and the report I found came from a person that has also bashed TF parts in the past so I am not putting much behind it. Maybe they did have a weak unit because it does happen but there are to many other units sold without issues. I have a heavy 35 on mine and there is no sign of issues.
/QUOTE]

There has been probs with more than one, just saying keep an eye on it last thing you want is your tire falling off.
here is a TF Post on issue. If you have a concern call em.

This is a very rare event to have one of these break like this. TeraFlex adjustable mounts are covered by a LifeTime warranty. Any customers with concerns please call TeraFlex at 1-888-837-2359 or send a email to tech@teraflx.com.

I love the Line X mod. I did it on my TJ and will do it on my JKU!!

I like how the Line-x looks. I need to add that to my list.
02-20-2013 12:35 PM
JimmEC Oh no. I hope not. Thanks for the heads up. Where does it break at?
02-20-2013 10:22 AM
Smokinjoe I have seen some reports of the TF tire carrier breaking with 37's just keep an eye on it.
