In the past, with a Jeep you were limited to roof rack (on some models) or hitch mount bike carriers, but now, with the Spare Tire Bike Carrier, you can carry bikes on your rear-mounted spare tire. The Spare Tire Bike Carrier mounts to the same studs your spare tire mounts to, with the included adapter plate. The rest of the carrier attaches to the adapter plate with one bolt, so it can be easily installed when needed and removed and stored when it's not.
This carrier is not only easy to install, it's easy to use. Just remove the clamp plate and lay the frame tubes in the troughs, facing the bikes in opposite directions for clearance. Then install the clamp plate and secure it with the knob. Rubber pads gently grip the bike frames without scratching. Once installed, the clamp knob can be locked with the included key; two keys are provided.
The Spare Tire Bike Carrier is constructed from 2" black powder coated steel tubing for a great appearance and maximum protection against rust. It comes complete with everything required for installation, including instructions, and it's backed by a 5-year limited warranty.
Rugged Ridge® is a division of Omix-Ada, the leader in Jeep replacement parts. Based in Suwanee, Georgia, Rugged Ridge was begun almost two decades ago when the enthusiasts at Omix-Ada decided that even a vehicle as tough as a Jeep could be improved upon. Since then, Rugged Ridge has created over 500 accessories to improve your Jeep’s performance, utility and appearance. Unlike parts made for ordinary vehicles, Rugged Ridge knows that every part made for a Jeep must uphold the Jeep tradition of strength and capability, so every part is designed, tested, manufactured and tested again to make sure it’s perfected. Then and only then can it be installed on your Jeep.
