Recommended Hitch Mount Bike Rack for a 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee with Factory Hitch Receiver


I was trying to figure out which bike rack to purchase. The tray version or the top bar version. The two that I was looking at were by Yakima. What are your opinions on which rack might be better then the other. My current mountain bike is a Haro calavera expert 2015. The top frame bar has a slight rounded angle so it is not perfectly horizontal. Also I was wondering what your expert opinion on who makes a better bike rack, Thule to Yakima? My vehicle is a 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee with manufacture tow hitch, 2 inch.


Helpful Expert Reply:

The Yakima HoldUp bike rack # Y02443 and Yakima LiteRider Aluminum bike rack are both good hitch bike racks.

I prefer Thule because of the look and design. I recommend the Thule Helium Aero # TH9043PRO because it's very lightweight (19.5 pounds) and easy loading for your 2015 Haro Calavera mountain bike.

It can hold 3 bikes weighing 35 pounds a piece and will fit 1-1/4 and 2-inches trailer hitch receivers.

I included a couple FAQ's and video reviews too.

Happy trails! Send us a picture of your Haro Calavera and bike rack once you install it!
