MOPAR Tailgate Reinforcement

3378 Views 2 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  Ducaton
Hello all! I recently upgraded my tires to 35" and am looking at the MOPAR reinforcement carrier and hinges. I have 2 questions:

1. Do I need both part # 82214770 and 77072345?

2. Will it relocate my third brake lamp? I have a spare tire cover, so I was wondering.

That is the rebranded TerraFlex spare tire carrier. Part number 82214770 is the hinges, and you reuse the existing plastic tire carrier. Part number 77072345 is a metal tire carrier, you cut the brake light off the post it is mounted to now, attach it to a bracket, and it is relocated to the wheel itself, sits just above where the center cap would be. I don't think you can use a tire cover with the metal tire carrier, it will cover the new brake light location.
Here are links to the install guides to give you a better idea of what ends up where.
