I have a jeep JK Wrangler with the Rubicon...

I have a jeep JK Wrangler with the Rubicon BFG/MT 32'' spare tire. WIll this rack clear my spare tire?

Responded on

The rack 'should' work just fine. This rack will give you 9.5" of clearance from the pin on the receiver to the rack. Follow this link for more details:

or if you can't find on that will fit, the Thule Spare Me would be another option:

It turned out to not work with the 32'' BFG MT's. An extender will be required but then I will lose more departure angle.

I had a problem with a Jeep Liberty with an oversized tire and also had to get a hitch extender.

It will work with an extender, but even with my 14" i still can't fully open the tailgate and I had to shave off some of the plastic/rubber around the glass to allow that to open past the tire.
