I installed the Teraflex hinge a few weeks ago in anticipation of upgrading to 35's, then after installing the 35's, realized the spare wouldn't fit with the factory carrier :facepalm: So I figured what the hell, this gives me a good excuse to upgrade to the HD carrier, and found out the hard way that..... it kinda sucks. Don't get me wrong, the hinge itself is a high quality, solid piece, and I believe that it does an excellent job of what its supposed to do, which is reinforce the tailgate and transfer the weight to the hinge. My issue is with the tire carrier itself. I was leery of the whole 2 piece design with the pinch bolts to begin with but went ahead and gave it a shot. I followed all the instructions exactly, put the tire on where its against the hinge, marked it, took the tire back off and pushed the carrier in another 1/8th, tightened the living hell out of the pinch bolts, then put the tire back on. The tire was pressed firmly against the hinge. Did some light wheeling the next day on the beach for go topless day, and when I got home noticed that the tire had moved away from the hinge at least an eighth of an inch. I'm not knocking Teraflex, I know they make some quality stuff, but I think this design is flawed. And for over $600, I shouldn't have to worry about my spare coming off. Anyone else having or had this issue?
