Well done. Very seriously, well done.

A light take on the very serious subject of misappropriation of IP and design.


These companies. Yeah you Rugged Ridge, Smittybilt, Trans, etc... should be embarrassed. Never an original thought. And if you're buying this shit, you should be embarrassed as well. Might as well order straight from alibaba or madeinchina.com

I run the Crawler Conceptz carrier, but very much appreciate and respect the work and innovation T.Flext brings to the game.

Great video, as always. And an excellent way to address the R&D theft. I will never run Shittybuilt for this and other reasons. And, I do run and love the TF gear.

Thanks

Great products and great marketing go hand in hand at Teraflex! Proud to run the only original Teraflex carrier myself.

I'm getting ready to change from 5 on 5 to 5.5, what is the best path to continuing to use my TF carrier?

I bought the Teraflex carrier too. Didn't get the actual adjustable tire mount tho, is the stock strong enough to carry a 35 with the Teraflex hinge?

Saw a thread on wranglerforum about this. Some douche said Dennis was a classless douche for posting this. Apparently Rugged has a team of engineers who work tirelessly to innovate the stuff Teraflex already makes.

Edit* I picked Teraflex because I wanted to move my spare out of the interior in the lightest, tightest way.

Video is great, but I'll buy the Smitty Carrier. You can make fun of me, my wallet doesn't care.

I spent five years as a construction superintendent for a developer. On his office wall he had a poster:
The bitterness of low quality remains long after the sweetness of low cost has passed.
Only time will tell if the copy is worth the savings.
Let us know if there are any issues or if it is awesome.

I purchased a Tera carrier last week before I saw this video. I honestly couldn't live with myself if I installed anything Smittybuilt or Rugged Ridge on my jeep. Everything I have seen from them screams "bro Jeep", lol

Yes the stock mount can carry your tire just fine. However if your finding yourself offroad alot, rock crawling etc the oem unit can crack. It's really best to keep that spare snug against the tailgate. The farther off it is ,the more leverage there will be on the mount.
