Platform Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2010 Jeep Wrangler to Clear Rear Spare


I have a 2010 Jeep Wrangler JK. I currently use a Quadratec hanging bike rack/Class II hitch. I am considering switching to a platform type rack. I have been looking at the Thule TH9044-TH9046. My JK has a 33x12.50 spare tire that measures 12inch from the center of the hitch pin hole to the outside of the tire. The bottom of the tire is 6inch from the center of the hitch. I would really like to avoid a hitch extension if possible but if not, do extensions come with threaded anti rattle pins like the racks do? I wouldn't want wobble with an extension. If this rack would work given my dimensions, how long of an extension would work without being too long? Thanks.

The Thule T2 Classic part # TH9044-TH9046 would fit well on your 2010 Jeep Wrangler and would clear the spare without any problems. It has a distance of 19 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the nearest bike rack so it would clear pretty easily actually.

I attached a review video for you to check out as well.
