    I tried a few of the relocation brackets and finally settled on the teraflex tire mount. It is lighter than the combined weight of a relocation bracket and stock tire mount. It is also way more sturdy and holds the tire tightly against the tailgate. My 37s don't interfere with the sensors with the teraflex on my steel bumper either if that is a concern. It is a great product.

    I attached some pictures to show you what I mean:

    Anybody here figure out a good bracket option for 37s mounted directly to Mopar reinforced tailgate? I want just enough height to clear stock Rubicon steel bumper while retaining as much rear window visibility as possible.

    Looking for an inexpensive option here, because cash is at a premium and I look silly as hell running 37s, but a 33 on the tailgate!

    Thanks, but looking for a less inexpensive riser-type option.

    I hear you. I went through three of those before I ended up with the Teraflex. At a little over $300, it is more expensive than the simple relocation plates but it does bring it significantly closer and preserve way more visibility without impacting the sensors. Anyway, good luck!

    The issue is that geometry won’t be your friend with the stock tire mount. With 37 inch tires and a steel bumper, you can get away with about a three inch rise of the spare provided you don’t push it out off the tailgate. The issue with the relocation brackets is that they all do just that by nature. It doesn’t really matter what brand it is as the geometry remains the same.

    If you are bound and determined to get a relocation bracket, the RC relocation bracket will work but it will raise the tire more than four and a half inches in order to accommodate the geometry of moving it off the tailgate about an inch. It will end up looking pretty high off the bumper but will work.

    Yeah, I realize that all relocation brackets involve pushing the wheel both up AND out. Was looking for a bracket that just barely gives me the up I need. Seems like the RC would do the job, but heard that it actually pushes it up a farther than needed with a 37s and the steel bumpers.

    At the end of the day, I'm probably going to have to suck it up and get the HD Alpha, but I need a lift more urgently. Cash is in tight supply...

    Hah, I wish I had better news but you are going to end up with the teraflex tire mount. The only question is whether you go through a few hundred dollars worth of relocation brackets first like I did or not. :)

    It’s sub-$300 from Northridge 4x4 with their current “pumpkinspice” discount code.

    So the teraflex bracket fits correctly with the Mopar hinge reinforcement?

    It works and fits perfectly with the mopar tailgate reinforcement if that is what you mean, yes.
