Thanks, I haven't gotten to compare them to the D2s yet but they blow the Duallys away. The quality on them is outstanding.

Thanks, yeah no more spot light

Update: I have the Teraflex tailgate hinge but now the Teraflex mount is on the way! Need to raise that tire up a bit higher for a better departure angle. Stay tuned

Wtf , another teaser picture!

When you install it can you take one from the side. I'm interested to see how far it sticks out.

I got the Teraflex adjustable carrier installed in conjunction with my already installed Teraflex hinge mount. Really excited with the improvement over the stock carrier and all the adjustable options I have now. On with the pictures!

For part of the install you have to press the tire stud mounts into the Teraflex mount and it would have went a lot smoother if I didn't just have hand tools so this was the hardest part for me. Got creative though and it worked out:







Used a socket and a wrench as a spacer and used one of the supplied bolts to thread the studs in. It was a pain but it worked. Here's my victory photo :



As you can see I mounted the studs at the highest possible setting (for a 37inch tire) Even though I have a "35" KM2 I wanted to gain as much height as I could for a better departure angle.

Make sure you have a T20 to remove the 3rd brake light from it's housing because you'll be reusing it:





Mounted up the adjustable mount:



and slid in the actual part that you mount the spare to (this is also adjustable depth wise, so you can have it sit out from the tailgate as far as it will go or pull it in nice and tight)



I remember when I was reading into getting the adjustable mount I saw some threads with people have problems with the weld cracking. Looks like Teraflex reinforced this with some beefy gussets and also at the bottom of this picture you can kind of see how it slides and theres 2 bolts at the bottom to tighten it in the spot you choose:



All finished :

Side shot (I pulled it in as close as possible with my rims backspacing and I actually have it up against the rubber bumpstop:

My tire use to sit on my bumper and I gained 2 inches of height :



Hope you enjoyed!

Nice build! I hadn't been keeping up, but just got caught up... not only did I notice my TF mount had 4 sets of holes while yours had 3, I noticed yours doesn't have the extra set for the 3rd brake light mount... how did you end up mounting your light?

Been getting this question a lot on various threads. In the first teaser picture above the piece of metal shaped like the Underamor logo is the bracket and I cut the 3rd brake light off the stock carrier and then that bracket mounted into the lugs on the spare and a couple bolts attach it. If that doesn't make sense I might detach it and take photos lol

That's a nice fit ,I like how it doesn't hang too far off the back like some other carriers. Also glad to see they added some gussets for some added strength.

Canceled mine a couple weeks after I made the mistake of buying it.
