Bike Rack For 2008 Toyota FJ Cruiser With Spare Tire That Allows Rear Door to Open


Hitch bike rack on FJ cruiser with spare tire. Trunk door opens towards drivers side. What platform rack would work in this scenario?


Expert Reply:

There is a platform bike rack for your 2008 Toyota FJ Cruiser that will allow you to open the rear door, and the best option for this is a swing-away bike rack from RockyMounts:

- RockyMounts BackStage Bike Rack for 2 Bikes # RKY10002

The BackStage # RKY10002 swings to the passenger side, so you'd be able to open the rear door that swings to the driver side. The only thing to take note of is the bumper/spare tire clearance, as the BackStage measures 9-1/2" from the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest part of the rack, so you'll want to measure to be sure you have at least that much distance from your hitch pin hole to the edge of your spare tire.
