    Default Suggestions for BIKE RACK!!!

    I have the OR FAB rear spare tire carrier with the two fuel cans and my 33" spare on it. Having trouble finding a bike rack that fits onto a 33" spare (actually can't find any). Was thinking about a trailer hitch style bike rack, but even then it will have to clear the spare and fuel cans, and they stick out from the jeep quite a bit. Any suggestions?

    I've got your same issue. Been thinking about getting a hitch mount, and maybe adding onto it for a bit more clearance to get past the tire carrier.

    Just get an reciever hitch extension and then put the reciever hitch bike rack into it. A couple of bunge cords will keep it from wabbling around.

    I don't have pix, but I use a Hidden Hitch receiver type carrier that holds 3 bikes. I got it from Qtec. It clears my spare with room for a 33x12.50.
