Thule Spare Tire Bike Racks Review - 2014 Jeep Wrangler

Today on our 2014 Jeep Wrangler, we're going to test fit the Thule Spare Me 2 Spare Tire Mounted Bike Carrier, part number TH963PRO. Now we've already taken our tire off and we placed our metal plate in place. We followed the instructions for that so just double-check. Make sure that's the right way for your vehicle. Simply slide it on and then we can mount up our tire. Before we mount that up, we want to take off this cap here.



Yakima SpareTime Spare Tire Bike Racks Review - 2014 Jeep Wrangler

Today on our 2014 Jeep Wrangler, we're doing a test fit of the Yakima spare tire mount two-bike rack, part number Y02598. We've already taken off our spare tire and taken our plate and mounted that as per the directions on there. Now, you may want to double check but this should be the way you'll mount it on yours. First thing we'll do is take our spare tire. We want to pop out this little plate here. To do so, I'm just going to take a flat head screwdriver.



Stromberg Carlson Hitch Cargo Carrier Review - 2014 Jeep Wrangler

Today on our 2014 Jeep Wrangler we're doing a test fit of the Stromberg Carlson 23 by 60 cargo carrier, part number CC-100. It has a 500 pound weight capacity. Now the first thing we're going to do is take a few sets of measurements. The first is going to be our ground clearance. Down here to this bottom bolt we've got about 16-3/4". Overall to the back of the Jeep we're adding about 29-1/2" here.



MaxxTow Hitch Cargo Carrier Review - 2014 Jeep Wrangler

Today our 2014 Jeep Wrangler we're doing a test fit of the Max Tow 48x21 Cargo carrier. Part number MT70422. Designed to work with 2 inch hitches and have a capacity to hold up to 500 lbs. So the first thing we will do is take a few measurements here. Ground clearance is going to be first. We've got about 18 1/2 inches of clearance. Overall from the back of the Jeep we are adding about 29 1/2 inches there. And our closest point is about 7 inches away. Our spare tire here does hang over just a bit, it's about 3 1/2 inches away or so but with this carrier we can open that back hatch and get anything in or out that we may need just be aware that you won't be able to do that if you have a lot of materials stacked up onto your carrier. Also on our Wrangler we do have a single passenger side exhaust. It comes just about straight out at that carrier there with about 11 1/2 inches between the two so just be careful if you plan on carrying any heat sensitive materials in this region that you might run into a little bit of a problem. This carrier comes with a hitch pin and clip although it does come with it it still allows for a lot of movement and shake. You can purchase an anti-rattle device to slide in there so you won't have as much movement. That's going to complete our look at the Max Tow 48x21 Cargo carrier, part number MT70422 on our 2014 Jeep Wrangler. Let's see how it does on the test course. Here on our test course let's start by running through the slalom.



Lets Go Aero Hitch Cargo Carrier Review - 2014 Jeep Wrangler

Today on our 2014 Jeep Wrangler we're doing a test fit of the Let's Go Aero GearCage, part number HCR222. The dimensions are 48 by 32. It has a 300 pound weight capacity. The first thing we're going to do is take a few measurements here. Our ground clearance at the bottom is going to be up to this bolt down here. We're going to have about 17-1/4" of ground clearance.



Curt Hitch Cargo Carrier Review - 2014 Jeep Wrangler

Presenter: Today on our 2014 Jeep Wrangler, we're doing a test fit of the Curt 20x60 Cargo Carrier, part number C18150. This particular cargo carrier has a capacity to hold up to 500 pounds. The first thing I'll do is take a few measurements. Our ground clearance will be first. Got about 21 inches of ground clearance here. That's because we have that nice raised shank in the back. Which is going to lift that cargo carrier up even higher than your hitch there. Overall to the Jeep, we're adding about 30.25 inches there. Our closest point to our tire is about 1.75 inches. Now with this particular tire that we have here, we are pretty close, but our cargo carrier still does fit.



Roadmaster Tow Bar Wiring Kit Installation - 2014 Jeep Wrangler

Today on our 2014 Jeep Wrangler, were taking a look at in installing the Roadmaster Universal Hy-Power Diode Wiring Kit, Part Number: RM-154. The first thing that were going to want to do in the installation of our Hy-Power Diode Wiring Kit is going to be to remove the Phillips head screws here at the back of the taillight and remove the taillight assembly from the vehicle. Once you we have it removed from the backside of the vehicle, well go ahead and unplug the manufacturing wiring harness. To do so, depress the tab and pull out. Then well pull back the tape here and peel back the wire loom so we can expose these wires. Once we have the wires exposed, well go ahead and take a wire tester and test our circuits. Now go ahead and test our right turn signal.



Roadmaster EZ5 Base Plate Kit Installation - 2014 Jeep Wrangler

Today on our 2014 Jeep Wrangler we're going to be taking a look at and installing the Road Master EZ-5 Base Plate Kit, part number RM-521448-5. This is what your Road Master EZ-5 will look like once it's fully installed on the front of your vehicle. You're going to have that nice sleek look with that black power coat to help prevent any kind of rust and corrosion, as well as that fully-welded construction and computer-cut design. You're going to have that built-in ring for your easily detachable arms that you can pull in and out for easy connections to your tow bar. Slide them in just like so and rotate them around. Make sure when you slide them in that you're sliding them in with the pin towards the top like so, and rotated around. It's also going to have that built-in wire harness connector up here at the front where you can put in your connections and anything else you need.



Rampage Towing Mirrors for Jeeps Installation - 2014 Jeep Wrangler

Today on our 2014 Jeep Wrangler, we have our Rampage Custom Tow Mirrors, part number RA8605. Now this has a nice look because it's a custom fit, it follows the sides of our mirror and it matches the look of our mirror as well. Another nice feature of our mirror, is it's got a fully manual, fully adjustable face on it, so you can adjust it to whatever point you need it to be at. This does come with both the driver's side and passenger side mirrors. It's got a nice, sleek hook and loop strap here and it has two hooks on the front here giving us full access to our stock mirror and it won't scratch the vinyl. We also have our alloy hook over on this side. That way we have full use and it doesn't get in our way. This is a very simple installation.



Best 2014 Jeep Wrangler Hitch Options

Today on our 2014 Jeep Wrangler we're going to take a look a the class three options that we have available as far as hitches go. We've got two offerings from Curt. First is part number 9883544, the second is part number 13432. We also have Hidden Hitch right here, this is part number 87424 and our Draw-Tite offering, part number 75515. A couple of things that are going to stand out about the hitches right as you see them, hardware's a little bit different. Our two Curts have bolts, washers and flange nuts that need to be added.





2014 Jeep Wrangler Questions and Answers


  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2014 Jeep Wrangler Behind a Motor Home
  • There are different types of lighting solutions available for flat towing any given vehicle, including a 2014 Jeep Wrangler. But first, there are 5 main items needed to flat tow a vehicle: base plates, tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking. Starting with the base plates there are a few options, see link to the right. Since you have not yet purchased the Jeep I can warn you ahead of time that if you get one that is stock then you will be fine as far as base plate...

  • Supplemental Braking System that Does Not Require Splicing in 2014 Jeep Wrangler Wiring
  • To install the Blue Ox Patriot, # BRK2012, you will not have to cut or splice any of the vehicle wires on your 2014 Jeep Wrangler. Also, I got a good tip from the installation supervisor here and he said that the feet come installed in the bottom of the unit but in most cases they are not needed and you can just take them out. This will help the unit to stay in position. One issue with the Patriot is that it does not have a way to tell you if the Jeep brake pedal is actually moving or...

  • Items Needed to Flat Tow a 2014 Jeep Wrangler Sahara Behind Motorhome
  • Flat towing a vehicle behind a motor home safely and legally requires a number of components, including base plates for the toad, safety cables, a tow bar, a lighting/wiring kit and a supplementary braking system. The linked article explains each of these items in some detail. We offer a range of base plates that will fit the 2014 Wrangler Sahara so long as it does not have aftermarket bumpers, winches, or brush guards. I suggest the Blue Ox # BX1126 with removable arms which comes...

  • Thule Apex Swing on Jeep Wrangler Rubicon, Will it Clear Rear Spare
  • You will need to take one measurement on your 2014 Jeep Wrangler to determine if the Thule Apex part # TH9027 will clear the spare. You will need to measure from the center of the hitch pin hole to the furthest point out on the rear spare. If that distance is less than 10-1/2 inches this rack would clear. I attached a help article with more info on how to take this measurement as well.

  • Why Must the Negative Battery Cable Be Disconnected on a Jeep Wrangler to Flat Tow
  • Jeep recommends disconnecting the negative battery cable when flat towing to prevent the battery from draining. When you flat tow your Wrangler, the ignition must be left in the ACC position. This would leave certain electronic components on that could drain the battery. For your situation, I would recommend installing the Roadmaster Automatic Battery Disconnect, # RM-765, that you referenced. This will eliminate the hassle of having to disconnect your battery cable each time you want...

  • Spare Tire Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2014 Jeep Wrangler with Wide Tires
  • Hollywood offers a cost-effective 2-bike carrier, part # HRSR1 , that mounts around the outside of the spare tire, rather than by using the tire lugs, so you do not have to remove the spare tire to install the rack. This carrier also has dual folding arms, fits tires up to 12-inches wide, holds up to 75 lbs and is made of black powder-coated steel tubing. Another rack to consider is a Yakima SpareTime 2 Bike Carrier - Spare Tire Mount part # Y02598. The Yakima includes two extensions,...

  • Will the Pro Series Folding Trailer Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier Fit a 2014 Jeep Wrangler
  • The Pro Series trailer hitch mount cargo carrier # 6502 does fit a 2 inch shank but to determine if it will clear the spare tire on the back of your 2014 Jeep Wrangler you will need to take some measurements. Measure from the center of the hitch pin hole straight back to the distance required to clear the spare tire. If that distance is less than 13 inches, the carrier will clear the spare tire. If it is less than 7-1/2 inches it will also fit when folded up. We have had customers...

  • Could Cable Tire Chains be Used on a 2014 Jeep Wrangler
  • The owners manual of a vehicle is the final authority on whether or not snow chains can be used. If there was a cable exception that would be listed there and the part # PW2028C would be something I could recommend for you. I attached an install video for these cables that show them being used on a very similar Wrangler as yours. I also attached an FAQ article on chains as well.

  • Roof Rack for a 2014 Jeep Wrangler 2-Door Hard Top to Carry Kayaks
  • The roof racks we carry for the 2014 Jeep Wrangler hard top are for the factory hard top and are not verified to fit if you have an aftermarket hard top. I have included a link to the options for you. The hard top will need to have rain gutters to mount the roof rack feet. It looks like you have previously ordered Yakima roof rack # Y00409 and # Y00101. There is no drilling required to mount this rack. The feet clamp to the rain gutters. The bar spread is going to be only 18 inches....

  • Will Saris Freedom 2 Bike Spare-Mount Platform Rack # SA999TB Fit 2014 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon
  • The Saris Freedom 2 Bike Spare-Mount Platform Rack # SA999TB may fit your Rubicon with 32-inch mud tire and you can check by taking one measurement. Measure through the hub to the plate the tire is mounted on. If this measurement is between 2-1/2- and 5-1/4-inches you'll need to use adapter plate A, part # SA999TB. If the measurement is between 5- and 7-3/4-inches instead you'll need adapter plate B, part # SA996B. Both adapters are sold separately. If the measurement is more than 7-3/4-inches...

  • Bike Rack that Allows Rear Door to Open on a 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sport
  • On the Thule Vertex swinging bike carrier # TH9031XT it measures 14 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back up the upright mast. But to the foot of the carrier it is 8-1/2 inches. It does not appear to be a problem on the 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited we installed it on, see video. The only other issue is that bike rack manufacturers say not to use bike carriers on a vehicle that is being flat towed because it can change the way the suspension on the vehicle behaves and...

  • Roof Rack, Kayak Carrier and Paddleboard Carrier Recommendation for a 2014 Jeep Wrangler Hard Top
  • First thing you are going to need is a roof rack. For a rack confirmed to fit your 2014 Jeep Wrangler Hard Top you would want the Yakima roof rack that consists of the following components: Round 58" CrossBars # Y00409 Yakima 1A Raingutter Towers part # Y00101 The two things you will need to consider is the weight of your kayaks and how wide they are. This roof rack can handle up to 165 lbs and has a width of 58 inches. You will need to consider the weight of your boards and kayaks...

  • 2014 Jeep Wrangler Hitch Mounted Bike Rack Recommendation
  • Most likely not, when we installed a Curt Hitch part # 9883544 on a 2014 Jeep Wrangler like yours we found that it measured 10-1/2 inches from the center of the pin hole on the hitch to the spare tire cover. So you would need a rack with at least that distance from the center of the pin hole to the closest portion of the rack and the # Y02465 only has 6-1/2 inches. Instead check out the Thule Vertex Swing 4 Bike Rack # TH9031XT, this is a very similar swing away bike rack that has 14...

  • Tire Chain Recommendation for 2014 Jeep Wrangler Sport-S with 225/75-17 Tires
  • According to the owner's manual for a 2014 Jeep Wrangler, traction devices should be used on the rear tires only. It is also recommended that a Class S traction device be used with a P225/75R16 tire. Class S tire chains are recommended for vehicles with limited tire clearance because they do not protrude above the surface of the tire as much as traditional tire chains. Since you have the P225/75-17 tire which is even larger, I would stay with the Class S recommendation. I have included...

  • Cargo Carrier With Ramp Recommendation that Folds Up Against Vehicle When Not in Use
  • I may have an option that will work for you, however, the Pro Series Steel Cargo Carrier, # PS10401-10402, does not fold up against the vehicle. The widest folding cargo carrier with a ramp that we offer is the MaxxTow 30x50 Cargo Carrier, # MT70106. The interior dimensions of this carrier are 48 inches long x 28 inches wide x 5 inches deep. It comes with a 48 inch ramp and a 500 lb weight capacity just like the Pro Series carrier. I have attached a demonstration video of this carrier...

  • Will Rola 22x59 Cargo Carrier for 2-Inch Hitches # 59502 Fit 2014 Jeep Wrangler
  • Your 2014 Jeep Wrangler could be fitted with either a 1-1/4-inch Class II or a 2-inch Class III hitch so you'll want to confirm which size you have before selecting a cargo carrier like the Rola # 59502. The linked article shows how to measure your hitch. The other thing to measure is the distance from your hitch pin hole to the rear-most part of the Jeep, either its bumper or spare tire. This will tell you how much clearance you need from the carrier so that it fits on the vehicle...

  • Best Way to Transport 2 Paddleboards on 2014 Jeep Wrangler Sport Hardtop
  • Your Jeep Wrangler with its hard top gives you two options for paddleboard transport. One is VERY low in cost and simple to use. Roof racks are available for your hardtop and these would allow use of a paddleboard carrier but not the discontinued Thule SUP Taxi Paddleboard Carrier that you referenced (this carrier requires a minimum crossbar spread of 24-inches and the racks only provide 18-inches of spread). The link provided shows these roof racks, which include the most cost-effective...

  • Adding a 7-Way and Brake Controller to a 2014 Jeep Wrangler Sport
  • Since your 2014 Jeep Wrangler Sport already has a 4-Way connecter in order to add a 7-Way you will need # ETBC7. This will allow you to hardwire in a 7-Way and a brake controller, which will be needed to activate electric trailer brakes. You could perform this installation yourself, it would not be all that difficult. It just takes time. For example it would take a professional installer about 2 hours or so to complete the installation including the brake controller. I have included...

  • Roof Rack Options for 2014 Wrangler Unlimited Hard Top
  • With the hard top removed, Thule offers the Crossroad Roof Rack, which is assembled using parts # THARB53 and # TH450R. The crossbars would attach directly to the vehicle roll bars. With the hard top in place, you can go with a rain gutter mount system, consisting of the Thule Rain Gutter Feet, part # TH300 and the 58 inch square load bars, part # THLB58. If you're needing a bar spread greater than 18 inches (distance between the front and rear crossbar, measured center to center) you'll...

  • Hitch and Cargo Carrier Recommendation for a 2014 Jeep Wrangler
  • None of the cargo boxes including the Sportrack Cargo Box part # SR7018 that you referenced will fit on crossbar spreads as small as 14.4 inches. The only option I could recommend for you that would allow you to carry additional cargo would be a hitch and hitch-mounted cargo carrier. For a hitch the most popular option would be the Curt Hitch part # 9883544. The most popular cargo carrier we offer is the Pro Series Carrier part # 63153. I attached a video of this carrier being demoed...

  • Recommended Tire Snow Chains for a 2014 Jeep Wrangler Driving in Moderate to Heavy Snow
  • I think adding snow chains are a nice addition, especially when you are heading skiing and potentially deep snow at times. But snow tires will be the superior option for snow. This is because snow tires dig down right through the snow to make contact with ground. I recommend the Pewag tire chains # PWE2228SC because of the square links. These provide excellent traction in snow, ice and mud. Just what your Jeep likes. These have a reversible design so you can wear on either side which...

  • Diode Tow Bar Lighting Kit Recommendation that Uses a 6-Way Connector Instead of 4-Way
  • Instead of getting the # RM-154 which comes with 4-way connectors you would instead want the part # RM-152 which does not come with a connector so that you can use the one that you like. You will also want the # BX88206 to connect this lighting solution to your tow vehicle. This comes with a round 6-way connector that you will install on the front of your towed vehicle and enough coiled wire to go from there to the RV.

  • Hitch Extender Recommendation for 2014 Jeep Wrangler Transporting Saris Thelma Platform Bike Rack
  • In order to mount the Saris Thelma 3 Bike Platform Rack, # SA4239B, on your 2014 Jeep Wrangler, you would need to use a hitch extender. To limit the amount of added stress on the hitch, I recommend going with the 7 Inch Hitch Extender, # HE06, because it is the shortest extender available for a 2 inch hitch but still gives you the room needed to clear the spare tire and use the folding option on the rack. Please keep in mind that using a hitch extender will reduce the tongue weight capacity...

  • Will the Kuat NV Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack Fit a 2014 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon X
  • The Kuat NV bike rack # N101 measures 10-1/2 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the nearest part of the carrier when in the down position. You will need to measure from the center of the hitch pin hole straight back to the distance needed to clear the spare tire on your 2014 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon X. If less that 10-1/2 inches the rack will fit. If less then 7-7/8 inches it will fit when folded up as well. I have linked a helpful article showing how to take the measurement. Since...

  • Swing Away Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack Recommendation for 2014 Jeep Wrangler
  • The swing away bike racks basically only come in a 4 bike configuration, but they would still work well to only carry 2 bikes. The rack I would recommend is the Thule Vertex # TH9031XT as long as you have less than 14 inches from the center of your hitch pin hole to the furthest point out on your spare tire. This rack has the most clearance for the spare tire and is the favorite of the demo guys here for the swing away racks. Check out the review video I attached for more info. If...

  • I believe we have exactly what you need. Check out the Thule Hitching Post Pro # TH934XTR. This rack has a distance of 13-1/2 inches from the pin hole to the upright mast of the rack so you would have the clearance. This is a great rack loaded with features, but it would not break the bank either. It can tilt for rear cargo access, has anti-rattle hitch pin and anti-sway cradles to help prevent contact between bikes. Check out the review video I attached. If you plan on carrying any...

  • Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Carrier that Allows Rear Door to Open on 2014 Jeep Wrangler
  • For a bike carrier that folds way down the Thule Parkway # TH958 is a good choice. However, it will not fold down far enough with bikes attached to be able to open the rear door on your 2014 Jeep Wrangler. The best and pretty much only option to be able to open the rear door and keep bikes loaded is to use a swinging bike rack that will swing off to the side of the vehicle allow you to open the rear door most if not all of the way. The most economical swinging bike carrier we have...

I attached a link to an install video for you to check out as well. If you plan on doing some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also includes a 1-7/8 inch ball, 2 inch ball,...

We offer a complete installation kit # ETBC7 that includes all the parts needed, including a 7-way. Although you have a 7-way socket now, its not a bad idea to have a spare on hand. The kit includes the duplex wiring to bring brake and 12V power signals to your trailer connector, and circuit breakers and connectors to install...

  • 4 to 5-Way Adapter Recommendation for a 2014 Jeep Wrangler towing a Boat Trailer With Surge Brakes

This will plug into your existing 4-way on your 2014 Jeep, and then the blue wire will get ran to the reverse light circuit of your vehicle taillights and then tap into that circuit with the included quick-splice connector. I attached a video that shows a typical installation for this product for you to check out to the right.
