Anyone using a Sherpa on their Wrangler ? I'm between that and the Thule T2. I like the Sherpa because of weight. My bikes are XC/trail
Wondering how it fits with the spare tire

the only thing i caution about using this rack on the wrangler is making sure you have enough rear clearance for the spare tire.
also, you will be limited opening the rear swing door with a rack like this.
i understand your desire for a platform rack...they're good, but in our experience, spare tire racks, like the yakima spare time or thule spare me work best on the wrangler.

I have a Spare Me rack on my wrangler and I hate it. The arms are too far apart for my Homegrowns. I have to play Tetris every time I load up. The rack also bobs up and down a little more than I would like.

I have a Yakima hitch rack that my bike hangs on with an adapter. I also hate it. I want a platform rack. I wonder about the 1up rack

if you can measure from the center of the bolt hole on your hitch out to the point where it clears the spare tire, i can help you with some measurements on the sherpa and others to make sure they will clear without an extension.
