Hey All,

I put 35's on my 2017 JK a couple weeks ago. Since then, my spare rattles when I go over bumps, even though it seems tight enough when I try to move it.

Thinking about getting the reinforcement kit for the tailgate, and heavy duty tire mount, but which one? I had been leaning towards this one, but would have to buy all 3:

Are these good items? What are other people using?

Thanks in advance!

I second the Teraflex. It's the same as the Mopar that was offered as an option on the JK's. Mine has been rock solid and takes the weight off of the tailgate. Eventually your tailgate will sag and possibly develop cracks. There are a ton of threads on reinforced tailgate options. I got mine on black Friday a couple years ago. No regrets and easy to install.

TeraFlex for the win! Great tire carrier. Don’t be fooled by imitations.

Check the little bumpers that keep a little pressure on the tire, are they snug against the tire ? When I put my new wheels/tires on, I stuck some golf balls in the ends so it was snug.

I think the TeraFlex option is the way to go as I have that too. I’m very very happy with it. It’s about as solid as a bank vault door hinge. You could mount another jeep on the back of that tire mount and it wouldn’t rattle. The rattling drove me crazy until I put the TeraFlex tire carrier system on.

I also have and fully recommend the Teraflex carrier and tailgate kit. Unless you are planning on going larger than 37s in the future.
