Hauling bikes?Oh yeah! i plan on using a "U" alu bar that you can clamp it
on top (that bikes can stand on their tires )and bunggie cord 'em on the spare.
It's main duty is going to be carrying baby strollers and stuff like that...

Junkyard hitch rack recycling

I had a retired Thule bike rack lying around.

It could carry 3 bicycles but there was no way to be installed
on my TJ couse there was an issue with it hitting the spare tire...

So i disassembled it

Cut the length of two of the vertical sectors so they can fit umder my spare

Drilled new holes and reassembled it

After some tests i figured that there was some need for reinforcment in order
to do what i want it to do...

I fix the support brackets with a pin on my hitch.

When not in use i unlock it fold it and store it in under my seat trunk
