Will Thule Double Track Bike Rack, Part # TH990 Clear the Spare Tire on 2002 Jeep Liberty  


I have a 2002 Jeep Liberty. It has the spare mounted on rear swing door. Looking at the video it appears the Thule was mounted on a unit with a rear spare tire. Will this unit mount Jeep Liberty with rear spare mounted tire, without modifications or receiver extensions?


Expert Reply:

You will need to measure to find out if you will have enough clearance for the Thule Double Track Bike Rack, part # TH990, to clear your spare tire. The distance from the hitch pin hole on the rack to the closest upright portion of the rack that could interfere with the spare tire is 11-1/2 inches.

You will want to measure 11-1/2 inches back from the pin hole on your hitch to see if that distance will clear your spare tire.
