Bike Rack on a Jeep

Hey guys!

This is probably a dumb question but..

I'm going to be ordering my Jeep soon and I do a lot of biking. What kind of bike rack/ where would it attach , would work on the JK 2 door?

I would go with a hitch receiver bike rack. Depending on tire size, may be hard to fit the spare tire bike rack on there.

Jeep Bike Rack

I use a hitch rack on my JK: Thule 916XT T2 2-Inch Receiver 2 Bike Carrier Hitch Rack

It was not cheap, but it does an excellent job for both mountain bikes and road bikes. I got it from Amazon.com.

It's not a dumb question. I have a spare tire rack, fairly cheap. got it from Dicks Sporting Goods but can't remember the brand. It does what I need it to do.

Great thanks everyone!

I wasn't aware they made spare tire racks either but I found both types now on Amazon. Thanks for the help!

I like that bike carrier you have. I looked closely at the pic, and I was able to determine that the brand is Graber. I found it on Amazon for $74.05. I'm just curious about what size tire you have it mounted on? Is that a 33x12.50? And how well does it fit on an oversized tire? Thanks.
