How to Determine if Yakima FullSwing Will Clear Spare Tire on 2020 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara


I have the yakima full swing hitch mounted bike rack. I just got a new 2020 jeep wrangler sahara unlimited and need to put a hitch on it so I can use the yakima rack. Which hitch will fit on the wrangler that will be compatible with the yakima rack?


Expert Reply:

For your application I recommend using the Draw-Tite Class III Trailer Hitch # DT78MR because when we installed it on a 2020 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited we found that from the center of the hitch pin hole to the rear edge of the bumper was 1". The Yakima FullSwing # Y02465 has a max distance of 6-3/4" from the center of the hitch pin hole to the furthest edge of the tire.

Since the Sahara has a different bumper than the normal Wrangler you'll likely need the RockyMounts Extender # RKY10008 as well which puts the hitch pin hole out 8" more to clear your spare.

Attached is an installation video of the Draw-Tite on a 2020 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited that you can check out.
