    Kuat NV 2.0 + Jeep Wrangler Rubicon

    Hey all, does anyone know if a Kuat NV 2 will clear the rear tire on a 2016 Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon? I know on an older TJ Wrangler with a bigger than stock rear most racks will NOT fit, so I want to check. Thanks!

    I was checking out the Jeep Forums and several people mentioned needing an extension to clear the spare.

    I found this on Kuat's website and from the top-left diagram it looks like there is only 6-5/8" distance to the hitch-pin hole when in the upright position. Seems to support what's being said on the forums.

    Distance from center of hitch pin hole to:
    Closest part of rack when folded down: 10-1/2"
    Closest part of rack when folded up: 7"
    Farthest part of rack when folded down: 33"
    Farthest part of rack when folded up: 18-1/2"

    I will be doing a full review of the rack today. Just need to edit it all together.

    This may be helpful for the folk who are on the edge of buying.

    ^I put wings on it. This makes it a plane. It's only logical based on the members of this forum.
