Wait, what? We dont need this carrier to run a 35" tire? What did i just preorder it for? My 35"tire fits fine on my carrier right now without anything!

Hey, this might just work for me. I've been wanting to run a BFH Poison Spyder bumper, but kept wondering how I was going to carry the spare tire on the tailgate without wrecking the tailgate. I didn't want to buy a bumper that required me to cut the frame, because if I wrecked the tailgate carrying too big of a spare tire, I would need to buy a different bumper with a tire carrier as part of the bumper, but that option would have been out if I had already cut my frame for the BFH bumper. Now I can run the BFH bumper without worrying about having to go back to a bigger bumper with a tire carrier. I'm betting Teraflex helps Poison Spyder sell a few more bumpers.

What is the maximum size tire or weight bearing capacity of this carrier? Will it handle a 40" tire on a beadlock rim?

I cancelled my pre order. I could justify 500 but not over 700 for the whole set up. Fucking bummer too. I was really looking forward to this. Looks like I'll just order the OR Fab from Marcus.

Any chance you guys will offer a pre-production special price for all the parts? Might be worth it to get your product out there versus very few buying it... Just an idea.

I really am not sure what is worse here.... the constant people bitching about the price or the constant people bitching about the other people bitching about the price.

Either way, JK parts are not cheap and this looks to be quality. It is a great alternative for people who run a slim rear bumper and dont want do do a heavy bumper/tire carrier combo. I think OR Fab is the only others making anything in the same category and they are priced pretty similar.

Plus Or-Fab doesn't open with the gate.

I agree with you. Dont dirty the thread with your complaining. What do you all expect to come from it? A $250 price redutction???

Do you guys know why JK parts aren't cheap? Because people buy them. When people stop buying parts, and start letting companies know that they do not approve of the pricing scheme for a product, the price will either come down or the part will no longer be made. I do not see any posts about price in this thread as "bitching". I do see people "bitching" about other people posting about the price.

I have to agree with the majority here. It is a great product that could serve a niche audience well, at the right price. The people this is marketed too already have a lift and 35"+ tires. They most likely already have an aftermarket bumper, but not a tire carrier. Maybe Teraflex is banking on the fact that these mods are not cheap, and the people with enough money to modify a JK will be happy to pay 500-700 for this bracket.

I on the other hand have a mostly stock Jeep, and one of the reasons I haven't stepped up to 35s is all the additional components required, one of them being a frame mounted spare tire holder. If this product came in around $200-300 It would make sense to me as an alternative to a very expensive bumper/tire carrier combo. Right now though if I had to choose I would get a full bumper/tire carrier for the same price as this Teraflex bracket.

I'm not sure why anyone seems to have a problem with people stating opinions to the manufacturer. What's the worst that could happen, the price might actually come down?

LOL
THe other thing about it is what Tera can take from this is that if Tera wants to sell a higher volume then they need to lower the price if the buisness model is low volume high price then they are right where they need to be.
Honestly I see where from a buisness perspective this info could be valuable. What is done with this info is another story.

Looks like an innovative and practical solution!

Q: Does the new bracket (for the 35" and/or 37" tyres) hold up also extra a 2 bike carrier if I hit the off-road (gravel only)?

My experience with the stock carrier is that the rear door of the jeep was not designed to hold up a weight which may move independently during off-road i.e. extra weight other then the spare tire! I am notices a tension in the jeep rear door when I put up two MTB on the spare carrier and shake the car up and down only on the asphalt! FYI I'm talking about this carrier fixed directly on the spare tyre http://www.peruzzosrl.it/portabici.php?id_tip=3&id=15 (similar to Yakima or Thule).

Cheers!
John

Im not certain, but the teraflex design puts the weight onto the hinge, not the door itself.
The main problem i have read about people putting too much weight on the rear door carrier has resulted in the little welds holding each sheet of the tailgate together coming apart and screwing the door itself. Also same deal where the gate attaches to the hinge.
I dont think i have ever seen anyone saying the hinge itself has come to grief.

As for when you can get it, iv been advised in on August as well, but im cool with thatm wirth the wait.

IrishCoffee,

Wouldn't a cheaper solution be to get a bike rack that mounts to a 2" receiver instead of one that mounts to the tire? You are correct the stock tire carrier/tailgate is not meant to handle the weight of a larger tire and/or any gear.

All of these steps have a cost which is built into the price the company is selling the product for, plus hopefully a some profit as well. If a company doesn't make a profit on something, they either don't sell it any longer or they disappear from the market all together.

At least for me, I can understand why the product costs what it does. Is it for me right now. Not so much. Will it be for me in the future, I don't know. It depends on what I plan on doing with the Jeep.

I have to say I think this is a pretty innovative product. It certainly has a market for people who don't want to invest in a bumper carrier combo or don't want to have to deal with the hassle of a double pull just to gain access to the rear of their Jeep. Something else to keep in mind is the pure weight savings of using the Teraflex carrier over any other bumper carrier combo on the market. I'm sure at a minimum you're saving about 100-150lbs.
Just because it's a new product doesnt mean that it cost that much plus a little profit to develop. Im going to find some new shit to sell you so youll buy it just because its new and you believe it cost me that much to develop.
Yes, I understand it cost money to develop and market new items, but I also dont believe everything I see either.

Well Jk Diesel export models didn't come equiped with a 2" hitch receiver. However, even if I would use such solution it could hinder the departure angles of my Jk.
Nevertheless I solved the rear door noisy issue and got the new arb with tire carrier! Basta now I have silence in the cabin especially on bumpy asphalt roads here in the Balkan Peninsula
:-) initially the noise been heard from within the rear door in my case.
I'm pretty currious if TF new carrier will respond well to a supplementary weight, other than the spare 35"/37".
Cheers
