    1up on a FJ or Jeep w/ Rear Mounted Spare

    Does the 1up quick rack (bike loaded) clear the rear mounted spare without an extension?
    Too many toys, not enough time.

    I just picked up the 1 UP rack for my Rav4 with the rear mounted spare. With the recommended insertion into the hitch receiver (couple inches, don't remember exactly) I can raise the rack to the 3/4 up position but not quite full up. There is clearance with the rack down and the bike loaded, but it is pretty close and I need to position the bike and the cranks to clear the spare (ie cranks at 3:00 and 9:00). since you can move the bike in the rack before securing it (ie into the center, or off-center either direction) there is plenty of room for adjustment, and mine fits in the center of the rack. anyway that is a long winded way of saying I don't know if it will work on your vehicle, but assuming the rear is similar to the Rav I bet you can make it work. I'm very happy with mine so far.
