Works great, but pain to install
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
The spare tire bike carrier was purchased to allow me to open my tailgate while still keeping bikes on the rack, and, while it serves that purpose, it was incredibly difficult to install. The directions were not clear, and the equipment that was specified for my jeep was actually the wrong size, so I had to adjust the install instructions. Besides taking over two hours to install, the finished product works well, and is nice to attach the tram hitch ski carrier to carry skis in the winter.

No matter how loose I have the knobs, it's difficult to lower and raise the arms? Any suggestions? It feels like it will break....
Bare bones rack, but gets the job done.
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I have used this rack a couple of times for 2 mountain bikes each excursion and feel it is dependable. I wish it had a means of keeping the bikes from banging and rubbing against one another, but I found that tying the bikes together with an old rag (lab coat :P) at the right points worked out alright. Other than that one complaint, rack is very capable of getting the job done at a reasonable price.
