Curt Cargo Carrier and 2014 Jeep Wrangler Spare Tire Clearance


will this carrier have clearance to fold up being that the wrangler spare tire is mounted on the rear door?


Expert Reply:

We have measured the clearance between a full sized 255/75R17 spare tire on the rear door of a 2009 Jeep Wrangler and the Curt Hitch Cargo Carrier, part # C18153. With the carrier folded, the uppermost clearance is about 1 inch between the tire and the face of the carrier. (This is the amount of clearance you have without the tire coming into contact with the spare tire. See the image at right.) If you don't mind the tire coming into contact with the carrier you will have up to 3" of clearance.

Check out the video of the Curt Cargo Carrier on a 2000 Jeep Wranger that I have included for your reference. I have also included a FAQ article on spare tire clearance.
