DV8 Offroad HD Easy Open Hinge Replacement Spare Tire Carrier Reviews
As others have noted, install directions (electronic pdf from DV8) are awful. They skip numerous important steps. Not only that, in line with typical DV8, their QC is terrible; the bushings included were not the right size and left the tailgate severely sagging. Even after contacting them and sending the right ones, the tailgate still sags. Then there are the gaps in the hinges and holes left in the tailgate. Also, the tire mount is 33% more narrow than the original so a spacer is needed if you want to put the third brake light back on (the steel braces gouge your wheels if you don’t). Overall the design is crap especially for the cost. DV8 should be ashamed.
Box showed up and unwrapped and everything looked great....except no instructions. Also none posted to quadratec site or DV8 site because this is a new product. After wasting 3 days DV8 still does not have instructions ready but are sending out the carriers without instructions. As if that makes any sense. Terrible customer service by DV8 and shame on Quadratec for shipping a product not ready for install.
