Description
 
Ever since engineering the first coil spring lift kit for the then-new TJ Wrangler, TeraFlex has been at the forefront of innovation and performance for the Jeep Wrangler market. Never resting on our laurels, we raised the bar yet again with the innovative JK TeraFlex Alpha Heavy-Duty Hinged Spare Tire Carrier and Alpha Heavy-Duty Adjustable Spare Tire Mounting Kit shown at the 2011 SEMA Show.

Not only did our JK TeraFlex Alpha Heavy-Duty Hinged Spare Tire Carrier leave our competitors’ heads spinning, but it inspired them to “develop” their own hinged spare tire carrier. It took them nearly five years to produce an inferior product lacking many of the features of our Alpha Heavy-Duty Hinged Spare Tire Carrier and Heavy-Duty Adjustable Spare Tire Mounting Kit.

We invested heavily to engineer this kit to meet several industry standards including FEA validation and ASTM and SAE testing procedures. Don’t be fooled by cheap imitations, TeraFlex products set the industry standard and are guaranteed to offer dependable performance to last a lifetime.

Designed to accommodate up to a 37” tire, the TeraFlex JK TeraFlex Alpha Heavy-Duty Hinged Spare Tire Carrier and Alpha Heavy-Duty Adjustable Spare Tire Mounting Kit 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 Wrangler’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” 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.
