  1. BLACK Wrangler JL Club

    Half doors.....lucky!
  2. To "Half Doors or not to Half Doors, THAT is the question?"

    THIS! Plenty of people out there that want the half doors but already have their JL. You could probably line up a buyer before you even take delivery these days.
  3. What did you do TO your Jeep JL today?

    I'd grab an adjustable front track bar to center that axle while you are under there.

    They sent me out this for my troubles :)
  5. Death Wobble

    I wish i could have fixed my steering issues with a 392!!! ;) In all seriousness though, like others have said, go through and check everything for slop. Torque all steering related bolts. Did you center your axle after lifting? Did your kit include extended LCA's or brackets to account for...
  6. What is the official theme song for your Jeep?

    toss up between Beastie Boys, Sabotage and Dropkick Murphys, I'm Shipping up to Boston. :)
  7. Teraflex HD Alpha tire carrier with reinforcement

    Don't let this thread steer you away from the one that you want. It sounds like they have started including shims with the kit based on the findings of myself and other customers. The intent of my post(s) was not to deter people from the Teraflex kit but rather to help others that like myself...
  8. Teraflex HD Alpha tire carrier with reinforcement

    Motobilt definitely went above and beyond for me. I agree that most companies might not be so eager to help fix a problem with another brand. That's why i wanted to promote their product as a solution if you run into the same issues that i did (with their blessing of course). I would not...

    You be the judge ;)

    I don't have a gauge to find out for sure but i'm pretty sure they are 1/16".
  11. Teraflex HD Alpha tire carrier with reinforcement

    UPDATE: shims arrived and went in immediately. Night and day! I used 3 shims in the bottom and my tailgate now closes as if there were no spare mounted at all! It did take some work. I had to loosen everything up and adjust the tailgate on the bracket to get it to close properly at first but...
  12. Teraflex HD Alpha tire carrier with reinforcement

    Seems some of us are having the same problem, trying the same fixes, and ending up with the same results. I'm working on getting a set of shims from another manufacturer. Once i receive and install them i will post my results. Hopefully it won't take too long to get them. I've also reached...
  13. Teraflex HD Alpha tire carrier with reinforcement

    I ran mine for a while but ended up taking it off as soon as it seemed like my tailgate was getting messed up. The more i think about it i don't think there is damage that is causing my alignment issues. Because when i first installed the reinforcement everything lined up perfectly and the...
  14. Teraflex HD Alpha tire carrier with reinforcement

    I didn't see any motobilt carrier install videos with wood shims but it was interesting that they include 3 metal shims with their kit which mount between the hinge bracket and the Jeep on the bottom hinge. This would push the drivers side up. Maybe i'll see if i can get ahold of some of those...
  15. Teraflex HD Alpha tire carrier with reinforcement

    I’m wondering if I’m having this problem because my tailgate was already sagging. Most likely the sag is due to warping the inner mounting points. If they are warped more than the allowed amount of compensation then there isn’t much to do about it. It would be nice if there was some sort of...
  16. Teraflex HD Alpha tire carrier with reinforcement

    Yup. Followed the instructions exactly. Several times. I will probably give it another go tomorrow. But I feel I’m approaching the definition of insanity with it.
  17. Teraflex HD Alpha tire carrier with reinforcement

    Hmmmm…. Where are you shimming? I considered shimming the lower mount (where it attaches with 3 bolts inside the body) to tilt the whole thing a bit. when I loosen everything I have someone lift up on the drivers side of the tailgate then I tighten everything back down. That’s doesn’t fix it...
  18. Teraflex HD Alpha tire carrier with reinforcement

    Yeah, everything is torqued. It is pretty solid, no noise driving down the road. It’s just the adjustment process doesn’t seem to work for me. Based on the instructions it seems there should be some movement allowed between the tailgate and the carrier when you loosen the bolts. But when I...
