WTS Yakima SpareTime 2-Bike Carrier
My coworker has this bike carrier for sale and is designed for vehicles like ours with spare tire carriers on the rear gate. It's for sale at $80 (normally goes for $189). He's selling it, as he no longer has the vehicle. PM me with a phone number/email address, and I'll pass it along. This is here in Houston.

The Yakima SpareTime bike carrier mounts right to your spare tire and carries 2 bikes—never leave your spare tire at home again.
- SwitchBlade™ cradles and straps adjust to fit bike frame geometry; integrated stability stops bike sway and reduces bike-to-bike contact
- Built specifically for use with vehicles that have spare tire mounts, the Yakima SpareTime incorporates the existing mounting bolts for a secure, snug fit
- Bikes can be centered on vehicle by offsetting the support arms
- Cradle arms quickly fold down when rack is not in use
- Universal mounting plate with extensions fits most lug patterns; mounting knob is SKS-lockable (lock cores sold separately)
- Fits spare tire sizes P195 - P235; P235 - P275; P285 - 12.5 in.
- Weight is 27.7 lbs.
However, make sure that your wheel center cover can be removed to allow the bar to go through the wheel.
