The Swagman Current Bike Rack for 2 Electric Bikes part # S64678 is a great rack and determining if it will fit your application is a tough one. There are two variables to the equation with your 2018 Jeep Wrangler JK Unlimited. While that is a large tire there is a chance it will still work. The first thing to consider is the hitch type and the tire width.

Some hitches for the JKU have pin holes that stick further out from under the bumper than others do. There can be as much as 3.5" in difference between them.

Tire width of course is going to effect how close the rack gets to the tire. I'm not so concerned about the bikes hitting the spare as the handle bars will be well away from it and the pedals generally don't stick out too far.

There is a great way to figure out if it will work or if we have another option that will work for you and that is by grabbing a couple of measurements. The first is from your hitch pin hole to the outer most edge of your tire. The second is from the top of your receiver tube opening to the bottom of the spare tire.

This will help in determining if this is a good rack for you. Let me know what you find.
