Hello all,

I am the proud first-time owner of a 2021 JLUR and I have a Thule 4 bike carrier but, I need a way to extend it so it will extend past the spare tire. Do ya'll have any recommendations or do I need to sell this carrier and get one that works for the Jeep?:)

I got one from a tractor supply, I think it was Reese. I wanted to be able to return it easily if I didn't get the clearance I needed so I tested it in the parking lot. : )

I went with the Kuat Hi/Lo Pro to provide a bit of clearance between the tire and the extension.

My tire was still hitting the arm of my bike rack (Kuat) and dropping a couple inches was easier than installing a rear tire relocation bracket.

I run the kuat nv 2.0 bike rack with the same extension above on our new jl and it works perfect. Whatever you buy definitely get something with anti-wobble built in.
