Ok, so does anyone know of a shallower than normal, or adjustable depth, tire carrier? My new wheels are shallower from the rear of the wheel to the back of the holes, so my spare is sitting about an extra 1.5 inches further off the gate than the stock wheels did. Anyone have a fix? Thanks!
As several others have said, the Teraflex Alpha HD covers everything you’re looking for and more.
It also re-mounts your camera in a new housing that attaches via quick connect to the outside of your wheel. Wheel backspace doesn’t matter anymore because it mounts on the outside of wheel.

Could I trouble you for a couple of pics?


Here are a couple pictures, I had about the same spacing as you before I installed the Teraflex HD Alpha. Another benefit is the Teraflex camera housing is a little longer so you will see more of what is behind you and a bit less of the tire!

Wish I had known this earlier this week before ordering the Smittybilt relocation bracket.

The relocation bracket arrived before New Year’s. I am now waiting for the tailgate reinforcement; it appears to be MIA... :crying:

Aldo, you should just return the Smittybilt. I was in the same position. I ordered/received the Mopar relocation kit before discovering the Teraflex. I just returned it and that was that.

When I was using the stock carrier I went with senrgy systems tire bump stops. You can cut them to size and fit where your stock bump stops go.

Ive got the full smittybilt bracket with new hinges and all. Its alright for the price but it does stick out too far imo. Im going to order the teraflex alpha when the full version with hinges comes out later this year

Has teraflex given any indication when the full version might be coming in 2021?

I love this forum, Solutions abound. I just installed the TeraFlex alpha HD tire mount and it’s solved 100% of the problems. Perfect solution, thanks again!
