Will the Yakima FourTimer Bike Rack # Y02469 Fit a 2014 Jeep Wrangler with a Spare Tire


I have a 2014 4 Door Jeep Wrangler with a Spare tire. Will the Yakima FourTimer work on it? If not do you have any other recommendations? I need it to fit 3 bikes all adults and would prefer a platform model for stability reasons.

The Yakima FourTimer # Y02469 is an excellent bike rack! Although I don't know off-hand if it is compatible with the spare tire on your 2014 Jeep Wrangler I can give you some distances that you can use to determine fitment on your end.

From the center of the hitch pin hole to the nearest wheel cradle is 17" and the bike rack has a 4" rise in the shank. I am not sure if you will be able to fold it but if you were to try then from the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest part of the rack would be 12".

If you don't already have a trailer hitch on your Wrangler then I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13392. when we installed this on a 2014 Jeep Wrangler we found that from the center of the hitch pin hole to the rearmost part of the bumper measured about 1/2".
