Oh and it just barely folds up with the spare tire installed but it does which is a great feature.
I like that ramp... That could come in handy

Sccafire It may be a given but either pack the carrier so your tail lights are visible or wire another set to the outside of the carrier.

03Ruth I have a buddy I wheel with that uses the atv carrier from harbor freight. It works great and is at enough of an angle that it dosen't drag going up hills. Needless to say he carries the ice chest!

life iz good I have the aluminum cargo carrier from HF and it works very well. I packed tons of stuff on it, used spider web bungee strap and climbed mount Washington. I have a 31" spare and clearance is not an issue. Good luck

mrpotatohead Scratch that. He refused to take payment for it. Overall cost: freeninetyfree.

mrpotatohead I scored a used one from a guy my dad works with for next to nothing. Also found a lockable hard plastic case for $30 at a local farm store which leaves just enough space for my 20MM ammo can.

doclouie Yes I have bought and used the exact same Harbor Freight one and I hauled a front and a rear TJ axle that I bought. They weighed more than the max weight, but it worked great. I bet I put at least 300 pounds on it if not more.

Buzzf117 I am currently shopping for one of these but most are only 20" wide and won't hold a standard 21" push mower I did find one on Amazon made by a company named ultra fab

wranglerbob1 I have the HF aluminum one and no problems at all. I even attached 4 PVC rod holders for surf fishing. Works as it was meant to.

cballou I just moved from Kansas to Colorado using the HF cargo carrier to move my dresser. Besides some damage to the dresser due to me not paying attention to how I loaded it I had no issues. I used some bungee cords to attach the carrier to the spare tire for some peace of mind. Even with the high winds during my drive I had no issues!

wa_troop I have it it sets preety far out it should clear just go there im sure they will let u try it on

InvisiblePants A ratchet strap over the spare would help negate any wobble from adding an extender.

Dextreme I have a URIAH brand and its about as wide as the Jeep. Works great and I think it was about $80 at farm supply store.

Jwolfer I have the HF version and it works great. I have put jerry cans, a cooler, and firewood on mine with no problems.

I just looked at the Smittybilt one. It's a little wider but the overall dimensions appear to be the same. They're priced the same too. I guess I've got options!

Hitch cargo carrier

Has anyone used the hitch mounted cargo rack from harbor freight? I'm getting ready to move and drive my Jeep across country again and just wanted some extra cargo room for tools/cans as my clothes take up most of the backseat. I'm just not sure if the hitch carrier is long enough to clear my spare.

(Side note i DID use the search function but found nothing similar to mine. I just need a cheap rack for a 1-2 time use.)
