Yep that's it! I run the straps through the wheel and to the bottom of the door so I can still open the back.
Nice! That seems convenient to be able to open the tailgate with the bikes still on the rack. Any concern about the added weight on the tailgate? I know some folks add hinge reinforcements for larger spare tires.

I can tell it does weigh down the gate significantly if I have both bikes on the rack. Its not so bad with only one bike. If it was a regular thing I did I would probably add reinforcements.

What kind of bike rack are you running and do you like it?

I just picked up this 1up for the jl and it is beef. I also like that it keeps the bike high and tight. Simple & fast to operate and Made in USA.

Might be the same reason why I have not seen a rack while riding my bike.

Funny, I thought the best part of growing up and getting a driver's license was that we didn't need to ride bicycles anymore...
