Really like the looks of this, and love that it opens/closes with the swing gate motion.

Just FYI, your product page for the BASE carrier says "Sport Package" at the list of what it includes. Very confusing and misleading.

Just up and down adjustment or also fwd and aft? Need to be able to accommodate a 37x13.50 on a 4.5bs 17x9 wheel.
TONS of forward and aft adjustment. We have yet to find a wheel/tire combo that wont work. Basically if the wheel/tire works under the JL then it will work on our TC.

Honest mistake, I will inform our IT department and get it corrected.

Basically
Base Package: Tubular Carrier Arm, Heavy-duty hinges, Receiver Stanchion, Tailgate Plate
Sport Package: Base package + Body Tub Brace, Accessory Mast, Backup Camera Bracket.

When I called I was told they are the same as the jk accessories. Just haven't been added to the jl page yet.

So does the sport package come with what you need to install the rotopax mounts? Or is that separate? Didn’t see any separate mounts on the site
Accessories like: rotopax mounts, high-lift jack mounts, etc are all sold separate. I'm working on adding the accessories to the website. For the most part our JK Tire Carrier accessories work on the JL TC. Call us for full details, or check the site in a few days.

Do you have a link to the installation instructions on your website? I like to go through the instructions before purchasing a product just to see what is involved.
We released the JL TC from home (due to the Quarantine) we will have the install guide and video made public soon. For now you can call us for a full walk-threw.
@Hydroboy35th is correct, in principal our install is similar to most body-mounted TC's.
Overall the install is not too bad, a few hours with a second set of hands here and there. Can be done in a garage or driveway with basic tools.

The key to the install is 3 fine-tune adjustments to provide a safe, rattle-free, super smooth swing motion. The Maximus-3 JL TC has a few extra components (body-tub brace and other optional accessories)

Also, support bracket needed for 37’s as well? Why is that, just wondering since no one else does. Hell, I I have been running a 37 on the stock carrier for over a year.
A tire carrier is only as strong as its weakest link. The Maximus-3 JL Tire Carrier addresses and strengthens said links.

Naturally there are many options out there - some better than others. We firmly believe that poorly designed tire carriers may eventually cause damage to your Jeep and/or become a general safety issue.

Maximus-3 spent nearly two years testing and engineering our Maximus-3 JL Tire Carrier. We have logged over 85,000 test miles and have found that our Maximus-3 JL Body Tub Brace performed exceptionally well for tires 37-40 inch tires. Personally I would rather have a stronger solution just to be safe, not sorry.

Thanks!

How does the camera mount? I no longer use the stock camera housing and the camera is bolted onto a metal bracket. Just wondering if yours is similar?

Yes, we reuse the factory camera in our new heavy-duty steel/stainless housing

Any way to mount up 2 Maxtrax boards? Or Pull Pal land anchor? Or standard Jerry can not flatpacks? How's about a cargo basket up top?

Just spoke to one of the fine crew at Maximus and placed my order for the Sport Package. Learned that this gear is E-Coated and Powder-Coated, which is comforting to hear. Their 10% off is still active, and sounds like there is existing inventory. So...off to the races I go. My other consideration was waiting for legendary AEV bumper/carrier...but who knows when that will emerge, and I wanted more bumper flexibility, bc I'll throw on GenRight front and rear eventually.

I have the Teraflex tire carrier currently, and was originally planning to wait for their tailgate reinforcement. But I think this is overall better kit, and I read of some challenges with the JK Teraflex reinforcement bracket.

Please post your feedback after you get it installed. I've been waiting for a good tire carrier/tailgate package and this one looks great. I'm looking forward to seeing the installation videos and reviews.

We have a Jerry Can bracket (part# JK2010SN)
No Maxtrax, pullpal, or cargo basket yet.... possibly in the future. We are looking into engineering other popular accessory-mounts.
