sthomp I have the Harbor Freight aluminum one. I had to mod it a bit to get it to clear the spare...just drilled a couple new holes and slid it back, took 5 minutes. It still wont clear the rear door when open but it is pretty light and easy to take off. I like side rails to keep stuff from moving around and they stick up pretty high. Keep in mind even if the rack clears the open door when empty it probably wont with anything in it so you will have to unload the rack anyway.

rclark My wife has the Hidden Hitch 1040000 20"x60" for $62.99 on her 2011 JKU. No problem with opening the rear door.

dano0726 I have had the Harbor Freight aluminum one (paid $69), but it won't allow the rear door to open (my 2011 JK Sport's spare tire hits the top of the rack)

Deacon Get the Harbor freight one - the Aluminum one looks great - holds up to 500#, Instore price is $129.00, almost always on sale for $99.00 and you can get a 20% off coupon from their flyers or in the back of Mens Fitness magazine which will lower the cost down to $80 plus tax....
Thats what option we went with for our TJ.. and it works great clearing the 33" Spare tire... we haul all kind of stuff.
We have no regrets , its light, easy to assemble, cheap and looks great.

The tire does come below the door but when people say it clears the tire I take it to mean that it extends past the tire but what I need is for it to clear the door indefinitely so that I can open the rear door while the hitch is attached

Receiver Hitch Cargo Carriers

I am looking for a 2" receiver hitch cargo carrier for my 2010 JKU Sahara. I want it to clear the tire and allow me to open the rear swinging door with it empty. I have seen a lot of forums talking about clearing the tire but they were not clear on whether it cleared the rear door as well.

Here are the few that I saw most people had.
Hidden Hitch 63153 - Hidden Hitch Class III Basket Carrier - Quadratec

Hidden Hitch 1040000 - Hidden Hitch Cargo Carrier 20" X 60" for 2" Receiver - Quadratec

Aluminum Hitch Cargo Carrier - 500 lb. Capacity

Would any of these clear the rear door? If not how could I get them to clear it, a hitch drop/extender?

Edit: When I say clear the rear door I mean will i be able to open the rear door without taking the hitch off.
