Jeep Liberty Bike Rack Questions

  • The weight of the Swagman Original Towing Bike Rack, part # S64600, is 23 lbs. The bike rack can handle a maximum of 3 bikes with a maximum weight capacity of 35-lbs per bike (105 lbs total). That would total 128 lbs of tongue weight on your vehicles hitch if you were hauling three bikes on the rack. That would leave you 372 lbs of tongue weight still available on your hitch for towing. I am including a link to the installation instructions on the bike rack.

  • I believe I have a solution for you. However, I do not think the Thule Vertex 2 Bike Carrier # TH9028XT that you referenced would work for you. The difference between the two measurements you referenced is where the measurement is taken from.
