Just purchased a TF HD with carrier. Some installers have advised the carrier will work with the 2nd from the bottom hole with 10A/HR/X owners with a 35" tire (although TF says to use the 3rd from the bottom). However my TF carrier only has 3 holes. Can anybody verify that a 35" tire will work with the 3 hole (updated?) tire carrier?

Just curious, did you consider the AEV carrier? Seems like a much better option where you have the bumper that is pre drilled for it.

Yeah I did, but you lose the rear passenger tow hook, and my OCD doesn't like the off centered placement he AEV hast. The AEV carrier also extends the tire outward adding a inches to the departure angle vs the Teraflex (if this beast should ever leave the mall to find out).

Yeah the 3 hole model, it's looking like the bottom hole will work with a 35" tire on a 10A/HR/X bumper. Going to measure and find out today.

this is the clearance I had with my mopar offroad bumper. I could have used the bottom hole but that does lower the wheel and in really tight places the clearance is an issue.

I have the 3 hole model and am using the middle hole with 33"s and the HR bumper, as you can see there would be plenty of room for a 35".

Nice exhaust!

I'm thinking (or going to try) to use the bottom hole (for the 3 hole version) for a 35" and a 10A/HR/X bumper. Let's hope there's clearance and a bit of play.

I'm hoping to have a bit more view in that rear view mirror with a lower mount.

You can press the studs back out if it does not work.

Use the middle hole for 35" tires. If you think at some point you might go to 37" tires use the top hole. It is near impossible to switch out the bolts once they are installed.

they press out pretty easily with a press or larger vise.

IF one has a press on hand or the right sized vise. My vise is not small and I still could not get them out, guess there must be a technique too it. Ended up having to find a shop to remove the bolts.

I used my smaller vise and a socket. I originally put mine in the top hole and decided I wanted to lower it a bit. I am old and feeble but have been wrenching since the early 70's so I have an advantage sometimes when it comes to square pegs and round holes I forget that everybody comes from different backgrounds.

Finally got around to it.

From the center of the bottom hole's (in a 3 hole Teraflex design), I measured 17.5" (half of a 35" tire) downward, and it didn't clear the .5" clearance suggested on the manual.

So I opted to use the suggested 2nd holes (from bottom) per the manual.

HOWEVER what I didn't take into consideration is that now all tired are true to the 35" measurement!

In hindsight the bottom hole could have fit my 35" tires WITH additional space.

If I ever have time again, I'll use that socket trick and press the studs out and fit them into the bottom.

That extra inch for visibility makes all the difference in that rear view mirror.
