Please help with reciever rack?

I have an 08 wrangler unlimited. I was wondering what would be a good rack that connects to the recievcer? Is there any that can fold up, or that don't weigh a ton to take on and off. Thanks for your input, God Bless!!

Bike Rack? Cargo Rack? Mototcycle Rack? Can you be a bit more specific as to what you are looking for?

I was wanting a rack that I could use for garbagge and for hunting. I do not want to have to pull my trailer everytime I get a deer. I thought there would be something a little easier to use. Thanks for your input.

What you need is called a Hitch Haul. Made by Mastercraft. They make an attachment for a bike rack, and it could easily carry all kinds of garbage, and I'd guess it'd do OK with most deer, although I've never had one on mine!

I got my rack from Wal-Mart for $42.00 and it is the best thing I ever bought. It is a hitch haul rack that they were running a special on. Check in the Automotive section of your local Wal-Mart.

Another nice thing is that they are just shy of the same width as a TJ.

I never saw one at Wal Mart that cheap, but that is about what I paid for mine, so good deals can be found! I got the bike rack attachment w/ mine, looks much cleaner than bungee cording the Schwinn to the spare!

Has anyone been able to use a folding cargo rack? I'm thinking that the spare tire would prevent it from folding properely. I saw one in the Cabelas catalog, but haven't seen one in person.

Monday 11/12/08 -owner of a 07 X model - I didn't see that coming.

Thanks for any suggestions
