2012 Jeep Wrangler Sport: Will The Bike Fit?

November 25, 2011

Now here's an area where the four-door Jeep Wrangler Unlimited has a clear advantage over the regular-wheelbase model: Utility.

So, how easy/hard is it to get a bike in the back of our new Jeep?

Obviously the rear seats need to be folded down (even then, they still stick quite high up off the floor), and the rear window needs to be unzipped.

Since we're going to be making upgrades to this Wrangler, I'm officially requesting we get both a hitch and a hitch-mounted bike rack for it.

On a separate topic, driving with the rear window unzipped lets you hear a rasp from the Jeep's exhaust that I had never heard with the top/windows in place.
