4 Bike Rack

What would you recommend for a 4 bike rack that will work with the spare tire sill mounted on the rear? This will be on a JK Unlimited.

I have this one

I use an extender for the receiver to clear the spare tire. You might not need the extender if you have a stock size spare but I have a 325/65 so it sticks out more.

I first went with the Yakima 4 bike rack with hitch extension...Hated it, PITA to load the bikes & open swing gate!!!

So, I sold the Yakima rack and went with the Northshore 4 bike rack (NSR 4), couldn't be happier!

North Shore Racks

those North Shore Racks look awesome - a little spendy at $450+. Found a few picks on JK's:

Yes the NSR 4 is spendy...but worth it IMHO for the quality, convenience of loading as well as easier access to the rear of the JK.

Wonder if you can add ski/snowboard adapters to this? That would be a huge bonus for me.

Check out the Saris Freedom hitch rack. You can get it in a 4 bike.

I have the Saris Freedom spare tire rack and really like it but it only comes in a 2 bike. It's handy though because you can open the rear without doing anything extra.

Either rack will work with almost any bike as well. I even haul my fat bike on mine.

I've had a Draftmaster for several years and have been very happy with it

Which fatbike is that? Been out of the mountain bike loop for a good 10 years. These fat bikes have got me interested again.
