Bike Rack for Isuzu Trooper
Roof Rack is out, way too high, I'd need a 6' stepladder to reach the top. Hitch mount is a possibility, but what of the rear door mounted spare tire ? Any other Trooper owners here ??

rhode gear has one... it goes over the top of the spare tire... GOOD LUCK!
I use the roof
Sorry not much help here, I have a Trooper but I use a Thule roof rack. Its not that bad...but I am 6'4" so take it with a grain of salt. You could stand in the doorjamb or the rack companies make a step ladder that goes on the tire. I guess it depends on the weight of the bikes, if you are riding some downhill rigs maybe I would not want to put them up there either.
If you are dead set on a rack for the back I would guess a spare tire rack, because of the tire you may lose the first spot on a hitch rack. I am not a big fan of the spare rack because they seem kind of cheesy, only my opinion, and the fact that multiple bikes rub together.
