I have an FJ Cruiser and I wasn't going to go for the hitch type of rack and give up opening the rear door. The spare tire rack solved this problem very nicely. Easy adjusting for 2 bikes to strap on quickly and easily. The only negative I have is that, once on, the rack doesn't want to unbolt and come off. The bolt gets dirt on the threads inside the tire mount and won't unscrew. If the mount and the rack receiving port were a little beefier it could be locked on with a hitch pin making removal very easy. Overall, this is the best rack I have seen for this application.
