Designed to accommodate up to a 37 inch tire, the TeraFlex JK/JKU TeraFlex Alpha Heavy-Duty Hinged Spare Tire Carrier and Alpha Heavy-Duty Adjustable Spare Tire Mounting Kit (not included: P/N 4838130, P/N 4838235, or P/N 4838188) will secure your spare tire over the most extreme trails and rugged terrain.
Our hinged spare tire carrier offers easy access to the rear cargo area in one smooth action. Using the factory tailgate hinge mounting points spreads the load of the spare tire over a larger area for maximum strength and durability.
Dedicated tooling and A356.2 T6 cast aluminum construction with a UV top coat, make our Alpha Heavy-Duty Hinged Spare Tire Carrier as light and as strong as possible, while its design, fit, and finish complement the JK Wranglerâ€™s body shape. Internal gussets and bracing in the stock Wrangler body supports the Alpha tire carrier and oversized tire.
Heavy-Duty forged steel brackets and Heavy-Duty 5/8 inch hinge pins constructed from fold formed high-carbon hardened steel combined with the factory mounting locations ensure the strongest rattle-free tire carrier available. With the Heavy-Duty reinforcement carrier supporting the weight of the tailgate assembly and spare tire, the Alpha tire carrier removes all stress from the tailgate.
The Alpha tire carrier also provides additional mounting points for off-road accessories such as a recovery jack and fluid containers.
