What Spare-Tire 2-Bike Rack Works with My 2021 Jeep Wrangler JL?


What is best option for 2021 Wrangler JL. I hear the Thule is great but not suitable. Prefer spare connector but would consider other option that’s light and foldable. Just need 2 bike capacity.

I have a solution for you. The only spare-tire rack we carry that is confirmed to fit a 2021 Jeep Wrangler JL is the Hollywood Racks SR1 2-Bike Carrier - Spare Tire Mount # HRSR1. The SR1 is only compatible with your 2021 Jeep Wrangler if you do not have a model without a spare tire backup camera. As far as weight, the SR1 only weighs 36.25 pound and can accommodate bikes up to 35 pounds per bike.

If you have a backup camera on your spare tire or want another option apart from a spare-tire rack that's light and foldable, I recommend the Hollywood Racks Trail Rider Bike Rack for 2 Bikes - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Frame Mount # HR200Z. In addition to weighing only 36.25 pounds and having a folding capability, the Trail Rider has a really long shank length in order to clear your rear spare tire. It has a length of 12-1/8 inches from the center of the shank's pinhole to the closest part of the rack. If you are using a compatible hitch that sits flush with the bumper like the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # 9883544, you need at least 11 inches of clearance for your spare tire. With the Trail Rider, you will not have to worry about clearance.
