    Update is that we will for sure be coming out with an Alpha Hinge for the JL. Currently in R&D and there is unfortunately no ETA . I will try to update as I get fed information.

    Does that go for the Alta rack and accessories also? Any chance the existing rack will mount to the new Alpha Hinge when it's out?

    I didn't once I got all 6 of the mounting bolts on. The instructions were lacking to say the least, and i was missing some bolts/washers, so I had missed a couple of bolts initially. Its all good now and seems pretty solid.

    We are hoping to bring a lot of the JK accessories over to the JL, but nothing has been confirmed yet.

    Just installed the JL tire carrier on my jlur with oem steel bumpers and the park distance sensors. My 37 inch spare is nice and tight against the tailgate and the sensors now work flawlessly. The new tire carrier is a great product.

    Tire carrier for 40's...

    Thought it might be tough to keep a 40" on the tailgate, though I just installed the Teraflex Alpha HD carrier (on top of the Mopar Tailgate Reinforcement Kit), and couldn't be more impressed with the "adjust-ability" factor.

    With a slight modification, I extended the camera arm an extra inch (trying not to giggle), allowing me a much clearer view of my surroundings, and less inner rim. Note that there's a low-profile, CHMSL mount included.

    This configuration allowed me to close the huge gap that the stock Mopar Carrier/Reinforcement plates created. Tailgate opens/closes very easily, too.

    Purchased through NorthRidge4X4 with a coupon code.

    I went with the Rugged Ridge Spartacus HD Tire Kit from @Northridge 4X4. With the forum discount, the kit came out to $399 shipped/no tax. The only thing is the kit won't be delivered until August. If you check out Northridge 4X4 site, Rugged Ridge is now throwing in a LED disc third brake light with the kit. Forum discount didn't apply though.

    I know Tera flex used to make the one for Mopar for the JKs then Mopar changed it up just a little and made it their own for the JL but really stole it from Tera flex. Thats what the guy at Terra Flex told me

    One of the big issues I'm seeing with the over sized tire carriers out there is very few are taking into consideration people that do Axle Swaps.

    It seems that most of the folks I know who've upgraded their axles (60's) are using the GenRight carrier.

    Yeah that's the best and only real option out there that I've seen since the DV8 swing out carrier only excepts a maximum width of 12.50. Most 40's are a minimum of 13.50 so that rules out DV8.

    Yeah I ordered mine through Northridge too but received an email that it was backordered so I cancelled and bought from a local shop who had it in stock for a lot more money. I was going to the Jeep Bantom run so I needed it sooner. Love it so far but I noticed I'm starting to get a little rattle or it's just the first time I took a trip in it with the radio off. Either way I love it.
