4-Bike Bike Rack Recommendation to Clear Spare Tire on 2020 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon

Question:

I am looking to purchase a 4 bike platform rack for my 2020 Jeep Wrangler Limited Rubicon. I want to make sure the rack will clear my rear tire. Can you please offer me suggestions on which ones will fit so I can make a sound decision? Thank you very much.

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 on a 2014 Wrangler for you to check out.

Thank you for the response. I was looking for a Platform Bike Rack, not the traditional one you recommended.

That's a little more of a difficult situation as most 4-bike platform racks don't have extremely long shanks as that would just make the bikes sit further form the vehicle, but we do have the Yakima FourTimer # Y02469 which measures 14" from the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest wheel cradle.

If you are wanting something that is top of the line then I recommend the Kuat NV 2.0 Base # BA22B-BA02B in conjunction with the Kuat Pivot 2 # PVP20B. This gives you a really clean looking setup that won't make contact with your bike frames, plus you have the ability to swing your bike rack (loaded or empty) away to gain complete access to the rear hatch area.

Review videos have been linked for you to reference.
