Expert Answers about Jeep Hitch Bike Racks


  • Is Thule EasyFold XT 2 Electric Bike Rack the Best Option for Back of Motorhome
  • The Thule EasyFold XT 2 Electric Bike Platform Rack # TH903202 is absolutely going to be the best option to carry your two e-bikes on the back of your 2018 Tiffin Allegro 34PA, and it can also be used with your Cherokee, but NOT when the Cherokee is being flat towed. The EasyFold XT has a weight capacity of 65 lbs per bike which will accommodate your needs, and the fenders will not be an issue because the EasyFold uses ratcheting straps to secure the wheels and has independent arms that...

  • Recommended Hitch Extender with Anti-Rattle Option for Spare Tire
  • The Swagman Dispatch 2 Bike Platform Rack # S44FR is designed to give extra clearance since the closest part of the rack sits 12" away from your hitch pin hole. To see if you have spare tire clearance, just measure from the center of hitch pin hole to outer edge of spare tire. I attached an article below with instruction for checking clearance. From what I can see though, it looks like it will fit with your 20X10 inch spare,. However, if you find you need some extra space, you can use...

  • Jeep jk with Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 2 Electric Bike Rack - 2 Hitches - Frame Mount
  • When we installed the Draw Tite hitch part # 76104 that you have on your 2018 Jeep Wrangler JK we found that there was a distance of 5-1/2 inches from the center of it's hitch pin hole out to the furthest point out on the rear spare. The Hollywood Racks E-Bike Rack part # HLY84FR has a distance of 5 inches from the center of it's hitch pin hole to the nearest portion of the rack when folded so it would miss the clearance needed by 1/2 inch. Now the Swagman Current bike rack part # S64678...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for 2020 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited for Access to Rear with Bikes Loaded
  • For your 2020 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited there's really only one style of bike rack that will give you access to the rear cargo area with bikes loaded and that's a swinging style bike rack like the Thule Apex Swing part # TH9027XT. Since your door opens to the side the folding racks wouldn't give you access with the bikes loaded either. If you were in need of a trailer hitch as well the Draw Tite hitch # 76104 would be the way to go as it has the best clearances for a bike rack.

  • Can the Yakima HoldUp Be Used On a 2018 Jeep JL Wrangler Unlimited with the Yakima BackSwing
  • Yes, the Yakima HoldUp 2 Bike Rack part # Y02443 and the Yakima HoldUp EVO 2 Bike Rack part # Y02479 will work with the Yakima BackSwing Swing Away Hitch Extender part # Y02483. I confirmed this with my contact at Yakima for you. They have tested these together which is why they are able to confirm fit. The Kuat Pivot Swing Away Hitch Extender part PV20B is no longer available but you could still use the Kuat NV 2.0 2-Bike Platform Rack part # NV22B with the Yakima BackSwing Swing Away...

  • 4-Bike Bike Rack Recommendation to Clear Spare Tire on 2020 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon
  • The Thule Hitching Post Pro # TH934XTR should fit the bill to clear the spare tire on your 2020 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon. I say "should" because more times than not this will fit, however since Jeep owners like to modify their rides you will want to take a quick measurement just to make sure. At long as the distance from the center of your hitch pin hole to the outermost part of your spare isn't 13-1/2" or more then this will fit great! I have attached a review video of this...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver for 2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited JK and JL Models
  • All of the JL Wrangler Unlimited hitches we carry will work on the JK Wrangler Unlimited models, but there are some JK model hitches that are not compatible with the JL Wranglers based on fit guide from the manufacturer because they have a shorter receiver. The bolt mounting holes are in the exact same location. Unless you are doing rock crawling, I recommend getting the longer receiver like the # e98856 or Curt # C13392 which will allow more accessories such as bike racks and cargo...

  • Best Fat Tire E-Bike Rack to Clear Rear Spare of 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
  • Since the spare tire on the back of your Wrangler makes clearances a bit tighter for carrying bike racks we've found that the best E-Bike Rack we can offer is going to be the RV Rider from Hollywood Racks part # HLY64FR which has the most clearance to fit past the spare. This also has a 80 lb per bike capacity so it would easily handle the weight of your bikes and has fat tire wheel hoops that can accommodate up to a 5 inch wide tire. This rack has 12 inches from the closest part of...

  • Bike Rack and Trailer Hitch Receiver to Clear Spare Tire on 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
  • The Draw-Tite # 76104 measures 6-1/2" from the front mounting plate to the edge of the receiver (see accompanying photo), and that is the longest hitch available for your 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. As you mentioned, the Thule T2 Classic 2 Bike Platform Rack # TH9044 measures 4-1/2" to the closest part of the rack when folded so there isn't going to be a hitch that lets you fold the rack up on a '16 Wrangler Unlimited. That leaves you with a couple options - 1) Get the Thule T2 Classic...

  • Best Bike Rack for Electra Townie With Fenders on 2019 Jeep Cherokee
  • The first thing you need to select is a trailer hitch and for your 2019 Jeep Cherokee I recommend the Curt # C13171 because it is simple to install while giving you plenty of clearance to use a bike rack. This hitch does have a visible crosstube so if having a hidden crosstube (where only the receiver is visible) is something you would rather have you will need the Curt # C13395. The best bike rack for you is the Thule EasyFold XT # TH903202 because it is by far the simplest bike rack...

  • Will the Curt Premium 4 Bike Rack Clear the Spare Tire on a 2018 Jeep JL Wrangler
  • The compatibility of the Curt Premium 4 Bike Rack for 2" Hitches part # C18064 with your 2018 Jeep JL Wrangler will largely be dependent on two factors, what trailer hitch you have and what size spare tire you have. The Curt Premium 4 Bike Rack part # C18064 measures 10" from the center of hitch pin hole to closest edge of carrier. If you were to use the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 76104 with a factory spare tire then the Curt Premium 4 Bike Rack would clear by bout...

Measure from the hitch pin hole to the rear-most part of the vehicle (probably the spare tire). If this measures less than 7-inches then the rack will clear your spare.

  • Swing Away Bike Rack for 2020 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited

The distance between the center of the hitch pin hole and the closest part of the bike rack that would make contact with the spare tire is 8.8". Some hitches on the Jeep Wrangler don't stick out very far and would create clearance issues. If the center of the hitch pin hole to the outer most edge of your spare tire is greater than 8.8" on your...

I have added a photo showing you this measurement, which is from about the 2:30 mark of the linked video review of this bike rack.

  • How to Determine Clearance Needed for Swagman Hitch Bike Rack S64152-2
  • It sounds like you have been using the 2-inch Swagman Original bike rack # S64152-2 with a 1-1/4-inch to 2-inch hitch extender/adapter like # HTAD or # HT5R. Both of these adapters allow 2-inch accessories to be used in a 1-1/4-inch hitch. While these items do both adapt size and provide extension (and the # HT5R also adds rise for more ground clearance) all such adapters will add potential for more motion of the loaded accessory, just as you noted. The other downside to adapters like...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for 2013 Jeep Wrangler JK 2 Door
  • One of the unique challenges of being a Jeep owner and wanting to carry bikes is having the ability to open the back gate of the Jeep with bikes mounted-especially with a hard top; for this reason I recommend going with a swing-away hitch mounted rack. My favorite rack in this class is the RockyMounts BackStage 2 Bike Platform Rack # RKY10002 . This rack gives you the option of tilting it away from the rear of your Jeep, as well as fully swinging the carrier away from the rear so that...

  • Will Swagman XTC4 #S64650 Bike Rack Work With Spare Tire On A 2010 Jeep Wrangler
  • I did contact Swagman on your behalf. They recommended referring to the below dimension versus the length of your Wrangler rear swinging door to determine clearance while mounted, folded down without bikes or the spare tire. -The clearance from the receiver bar hole to the first wheel hoop is 11.5" Due to the rise in the shank of the Swagman XTC4 4-Bike Rack for 2" Hitches # S64665, the ability to tilt the rack down would be essential for clearance and this does not provide that....

The Yakima FullSwing # Y02465 has a max distance of 6-3/4" from the center of the hitch pin hole to the furthest edge of the tire. Since the Sahara has a different bumper than the normal Wrangler you'll likely need the RockyMounts Extender # RKY10008...

  • Can the Swagman Dispatch 2 Hold Bikes With Step Through Frames Without an Adapter Bar
  • The Swagman Dispatch 2 Bike Platform Rack part # S44FR is a great bike rack option for bikes with step through frames. The dual hooks have different lengths allowing for the proper hold of bikes with the same frame types because they will lock down anywhere along the upright mast. I've linked a video on the rack for you to check out.

This will likely give you the clearance needed for your spare tire on your Jeep Wrangler Sahara. When tilted down, you will be able to open the rear door of your Jeep when there are not bikes loaded. With loaded bikes, the rear door will only be able to open partially....

You need to measure the distance from the hitch pin hole out to the furthest point out on the rear spare.

  • E-Bike Rack that Can Be Used at Rear of Flat Towed Vehicle
  • This is a really good question. So at the back of a vehicle that is being flat towed there's a bit of side to side sway as the vehicle works to stay in a straight line. This eventually will fatigue bike racks if they are reinforced for this. So the EasyFold is not rated for this application which is why it's not listed for it. The best rack that is rated for this the Hollywood Racks RV Rider # HLY64FR which uses a similar clamp design. Check out the review video I attached for more...

  • Recommended Bike Rack That Won't Interfere with Spare Tire on 2000 Jeep TJ Wrangler
  • I have a solution for you, but the RockyMounts West Slope # RKY10222 is not a good choice to use on a 2000 Jeep TJ Wrangler (or any vehicle with a rear mounted spare tire) because the length of the shank does not provide sufficient clearance from the spare tire on the back of your vehicle-folded up and in the lowered position. I'll also add that unless you have a hitch on your Jeep with an elongated receiver tube, it may be difficult to find a hitch mounted rack that will extend far enough...

The trailer hitches made for the 2019 Cherokee, like the Draw-Tite # 75998 or Curt # C13395 sit pretty flush with the rear bumper, so clearing your bumper will not be an issue with the Hanger installed. The same is true for the OEM trailer hitch, so no issues there. The RunWay does allow you to use the tilt feature with or without the bikes loaded, as shown on page...

  • Can Dual Hitch Adapter be Used with Swagman Quad 2+2 While Towing a 1984 Coleman Popup
  • A dual hitch receiver like the MaxxTow # MT70070 will allow you to install the Swagman Quad 2+2 # S64FR and a ball mount for towing on your 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, but it will cut your hitch weight rating by 50% (so cut it in half and then remove 86 lbs for the weight of the bike rack) and I don't think you'll have enough room for turning with this longer bike rack. Instead what I recommend doing is either installing a trailer hitch like the Curt # C13704 on your camper (fits...

From the center of the hitch pin hole to the upright on the Yakima DoubleDown # Y02424 is 11-1/2". If your hitch pin hole to spare tire distance is under 11-1/2" then you can definitely use the DoubleDown. I recommend adding the LockUp Kit # Y07238 to secure both your bikes and bike rack.

That said, we can't exactly test this for every vehicle either. If you are looking for a bike rack that won't block the backup camera while in the stowed position then the best option would be the Kuat Transfer 2 Bike Platform Rack part # TS02G which has a much more open design therefore has a greater chance of not obstructing the view.

  • Best Option To Carry RadRover 5 Electric Fat Bikes on a Jeep Wrangler

The Saris Freedom has a long shank which will clear the rear spare tire and wide cradles which will accommodate bikes with fat tires. That said, you'll need to remove the batteries so you can get the bikes down to 60 lbs each but this would be the only option we offer that meet all three criteria.

  • Swinging Bike Rack Options for 2020 Jeep Wrangler
  • If you are looking for a swing-away 2-bike rack the only option for a rack by itself is the RockyMounts BackStage 2 Bike Platform Rack - 2" Hitches - Swinging # RKY10002. That said, you do have another option, which is the Yakima BackSwing Swing Away Hitch Extender for Bike Racks - 2" Hitches # Y02483.

  • I do have an option for you but I am not aware of any bike rack that will fold down far enough in order for you to swing open the rear hatch on your 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. Instead, you will want to look into a bike rack with a swing away feature. The swing away feature will allow you to open the rear hatch on your Jeep without having to remove the bike rack or bikes.

  • Recommended Platform Bike Rack for Use With 2013 Jeep Wrangler
  • I can certainly help you out choosing the right bike rack to fit your needs. The first step for you to take is to measure from the center of your Jeep's hitch pin hole to the outermost edge of the spare tire. For example, on a 2013 Wrangler, Curt hitch # 9883544 measures 10-1/2" to the edge of the spare. You would need your bike rack to extend past this at its closest point if your Jeep has a similar measurement. The Swagman XTC-2 # S64670 is 8 inches to the first wheel hoop, and the...

From the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest part of the rack is 11-3/4" so just add 7" to that measurement to get an idea of where the bike rack will sit.

  • The use of a hitch extender like the Curt Hitch Extender part # C45791 on a bike rack like the Yakima HoldUp 2 Bike Rack part # Y02443 is not a good idea because it moves the weight away for the vehicle further which then in turn reduces the weight capacity of the trailer hitch.

  • Platform Bike Rack Recommendation for Rear of Motorhome
  • At the rear of a trailer or RV the ride quality is very rough when compared to the ride quality at the rear of a passenger vehicle. Reason being the suspension isn't as sophisticated and there is a longer distance between the rear axle and the rear of the trailer which exaggerates the movement of the trailer when hitting bumps. Because of that only a few bike racks were designed to be reinforced enough for that type of use. The Kuat bike racks are great bike racks that are high quality,...
