Can't tell if it will clear your tire from the pics. But I have a similar rack and it works for me. Except that I can't open the tailgate with the rack on. The rack folds down so that you should be able to, but it doesn't fold enough to clear the tire.

If it doesn't clear your spare, you can always get something like this:




Also, you might try these people:

They have a good selection of bike racks and I've had pretty good luck with them.

Thanks for the replies


I ended up ordering it new from ebay for 200 shipped.

I didnt know they made "extenders" for the hitch, ill end up getting that if the rack doesnt fit
