Questions from Toyota FJ Cruiser owners about this Bike Rack

  • The Hollywood Racks SR1 2-Bike Carrier # HRSR1 should work just fine on your 2013 FJ Cruiser with a backup camera. It will fit around the wheel and would not interfere with the camera aside from its view being mostly blocked by your bikes. On an FJ forum there was a guy who removed the camera and mounted it to the bike rack frame so that the camera would be use-able with bikes loaded. Also, I do not recommend you have your bikes loaded on the rack while you open and close...

  • If you are okay with not using the back up camera while carrying bikes I recommend going with the Hollywood Racks SR1 2-Bike Carrier - Spare Tire Mount, part # HRSR1, which you reference. You will have to remove the plastic cover from the spare tire for it to fit. Since you plan on carrying a womens bikes, I recommend picking up the Bike Frame Adapter Bar, # HRBA-PRO. Bikes with small or angled frames can be difficult to load on a bike rack and cause ground clearance issues....

Questions from Toyota FJ Cruiser owners about this Bike Rack

  • Yes, indeed! We can help you select a 2-inch hitch-mount bike rack for use on your 2008 Toyota FJ Cruiser with rear-mounted spare tire. We offer a range of 4-bike hitch racks that will fit the 2-inch Class III hitch on your FJ. First, you will want to take one simple measurement of the vehicle. Measure from the center of the hitch pin hole to the rear-most part of the vehicle; in your case this will likely be the spare tire cover. The linked article illustrates how to take...

Questions from Toyota FJ Cruiser owners about this Bike Rack

  • The Yakima SpareTime Spare Tire Mounted Bike Rack, part # Y02598 would be a great choice that would work very well on your 2008 FJ Cruiser. If you click on the provided links, you can see the install details as well as a product demonstration video. For womens bikes or bikes with sharply angled top tubes or step-through frames, using a frame adapter like the Yakima Tube Top, part # Y02531 is recommended. The adapter spans the distance between the seat post and the handle...

  • If you are looking to carrying all 3 bikes at once, SportRack offers the 3 Bike Spare Tire Mounted Rack, # SR2813, for your 2008 Toyota FJ Cruiser.

  • The Thule Spare Me 2 Bike Rack, part # TH963PRO mounting plate will need to be removed in order to mount the SportRack 3 Bike Rack, part # SR2813. If you are planning on carrying bikes with alternative frames like kids bikes or women's bikes I recommend using an adapter bar like part # 64005. This attaches between the seat post and the handlebar stem and allows the bike to be carried more level in the carrier while providing additional ground clearance. I have attached a product...

  • All of the spare-tire-mount bike racks offered for your 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser are incompatible with vehicles that have the OEM spare-tire-mounted back up camera. This is true for all four brands, Yakima, Thule, Hollywood Racks and SportRack, whose spare tire racks are shown on the link at right. Since you paid for the functionality of that camera a better option is to install a hitch and use a hitch-mount bike carrier, which you can do as long as you do not have the auxiliary...

  • To determine if the Yakima SpareTime 2 Bike Carrier, # Y02598, will fit your 2007 Toyota FJ Crusier, there are a couple of important measurements that you will need to take.

Then, measure the distance from the back of the wheel, where the mounting plate will bolt up to the wheel, to the farthest out part of the spare tire. This measurement will need to be...

Questions from Toyota FJ Cruiser owners about this Bike Rack

  • If the backup camera is mounted anywhere on the spare tire or spare tire carrier of your 2011 Toyota FJ Cruiser the Thule Spare Me, # TH963PRO, will not fit. Otherwise it is listed as a fit. If your FJ Cruiser does have a back up camera that is mounted right in the center of the spare then I recommend using Hollywood Racks spare tire mount bike rack # HRSR1 instead. But you will have to remove the plastic cover from the spare tire for it to fit. I have linked video reviews...

  • To choose a compatible rack, you would need to measure the distance between the hitch pin hole in your receiver and the furthest rearward portion of your spare tire, as shown in the photo I edited and the help article I have linked you to. You would then choose a rack whose hitch pin hole to closest portion of the rack dimension is greater than the measurement you took. For instance, when we installed a Draw-Tite # 75461 or a Hidden Hitch # 87412 on a FJ Crusier, we found that...

  • You have two options that will allow you to carry 2 or 3 bikes on your 2012 Toyota FJ Cruiser with the spare tire camera. You could use hitch mounted bike racks or roof mounted bike racks. The spare tire camera will prevent you from using a spare tire mounted bike rack. The first option that I would recommend would be a hitch mounted bike rack. This will require you to have a trailer hitch on your vehicle. If you do not have a trailer hitch on your vehicle and are interested...

If you find that the 9-1/2 inches is insufficient to clear the spare tire, you have a few options. You could use a Hitch Extender, such as part # HE06, which would add 7 inches of clearance but would lower the tongue weight capacity, or the amount of downward pressure on the hitch, by 50 percent.

  • On the Prorack bike rack # PR8062404 it measures 10-1/2 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of the upright mast of the rack. That should provide you with 2-1/2 inches of clearance. There is a little support gusset on the shank to the bottom of the mast that is 6-1/2 inches back from the pin hole but that should only be an issue if the bumper is further back than that. I have linked a video review of the rack for you. If you will be carrying any bikes that...

  • There is a quick way to take a measurement on your 2013 Toyota FJ Cruiser to see if you have the clearance for a bike carrier. You will need a tape masure and a straight edge like a yardstick or a dowel.

  • That is a tough one, I can usually come up with some sort of recommendation but this one has me stumped. Any spare tire bike rack, see link, is going to use the same mounting location as your backup camera is using and any hitch mounted bike rack is going to block the view of the camera. The only way I can see that bikes could be carried with your 2010 Toyota FJ Cruiser would be to use a Front Mount Trailer Hitch, item # 31367, and a bike rack like the Swagman XC2 Wheel Mount...
