Teraflex Part #: 4838150
The TeraFlex Heavy Duty Hinged Carrier & Adjustable Tire Mount is designed to carry up to a 37" tire over the most extreme trails and obstacles, and provide easy and immediate access to the rear cargo area with a single, factory style action unlike most aftermarket tire carriers. The tailgate reinforcement Kit spreads the load and weight of the tire to more than just one hinge point. Incorporating and using the factory tailgate hinge mounting points spread and separate the load as far apart as possible, resulting in maximum strength and durability. 5/8" High-carbon Hardened Steel Pins connect the cast aluminum carrier to the HD forged hinges. Pre-installed brass bushings provide low frictions movement. The forged steel hinge brackets bolt to the factory reinforced hinge mounting points for superior strength. The hinge brackets provide support needed for the complete assembly. The HD Adjustable Tire Mounting kit allows fine tuning fore and aft spare tire position to keep it secured as close to the body as possible for maximum rear clearance. Multiple vertical mounting holes provide custom spare tire height to fit multiple rear bumper configurations and to keep center of gravity as low as possible.

Dedicated tooling provides a cast A356.2 T6 Aluminum main component. This keeps the carrier as light, and strong as possible. The fit and finish is designed to follow the flow and contour of the Jeep tub, while seamlessly providing additional mounting points for off road accessories such as recovery jack and fluid containers. The factory Jeep body provides substantial internal gussets and bracing that easily supports the new tire carrier and over sized tire. The HD hinge brackets are forged steel and the HD 5/8" hinge pins are constructed from cold formed high-carbon hardened steel. The combination of mounting location and HD mounting brackets provides one of the strongest, rattle-free tire carriers on the market today. The TeraFlex HD tire carrier removes all stress from the gate by utilizing the HD reinforcement carrier as the load-carrying component, in effect it carries the weight of the tailgate assembly and the spare tire.
