We have one aluminum folding option for you and it is the 19x60 Curt Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches - 500 lbs # C18100. This carrier is well made and will store close to your vehicle when not in use.

We have a few other aluminum options also rated for 500 lbs capacity but they don't have the folding option. I've listed them below to assist.

MaxxTow 27x47 Cargo Carrier w/ Pivoting Ramp # MT70100
27x47 MaxxTow Cargo Carrier w/ 60" Pivoting Ramp # MT70275
20x47 MaxxTow Cargo Carrier # MT70108
21x48 MaxxTow Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches # MT70422

Question:

Thanks for getting back to me, but I was looking for a folding cargo rack that when not in use, it would fold up to the tire on the back of the jeep where it would be stored.

The 19x60 Curt Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches - 500 lbs # C18100 is what you would want. The carrier will fold up close to your spare tire when not in use. Because you have a Jeep with the spare tire, you will need to measure from the hole in your hitch where you put the pin to the outside edge of your spare tire. This carrier has a closest point of 4-1/2 inches from the hitch pin hole in the receiver when folded.

If you need more space, I recommend using a hitch extender like the Curt Hitch Extender-- 8" Long # C45791 or the Brophy 7-3/8 inch extender # HE06. The use of an extender will reduce the tongue weight capacity of your hitch by 50% so you will want to stay within those limits when carrying your cargo. To secure your investment, you may want to use hitch locks like # e98882 which can be keyed alike when ordered at the same time.
