To see if the telescoping rods for the Performance Tool Vehicle and Trailer Aligner # PTW1276 will clear the spare tire and brake light on your 2016 Jeep Wrangler, you will just need to take a couple measurements on your vehicle.

The telescoping rods are designed to magnetically attach to both the ball mount on your vehicle and the coupler on your trailer. In order to determine if the rod will sit far enough out from the rear of your Jeep to clear the spare tire, you will just need to measure the distance the ball mount will stick out as it relates to the spare tire. As long as your ball mount or hitch receiver extends past where the spare tire sits, there will be no clearance issues.

The rod can extend up to 41 inches tall. You can measure this distance in height from the ball mount on your vehicle to see where exactly this will be. This will tell you whether or not the foam ball or LED light will sit higher than the brake light on your Jeep.
