Helpful Expert Reply:

Yes, the Surco Spare Tire 3-Bike Carrier # BT300 referenced in your question is indeed confirmed to fit your 2005 Jeep Wrangler X. The backing plate on the rack will attach to the rim of your spare tire by sliding it over the mounting plate for the wheel.

If you plan on carrying any children's, woman's or alternative frame bikes, you might also need an adapter bar like the Kuat # UB01. This will provide a horizontal attachment point for level transport and improved ground clearance. I have attached a short video demonstration on this product so you can see exactly how it works and why it might be needed.
