- How to Install Olympic 4x4 Sierra Rack - Textured Black on your Wrangler
Features, Description, Reviews, Q&A, Specs & Installation
Convenient Storage. The Olympic 4x4 Sierra Textured Black Rack is the perfect product for convenient storage on your Jeep Wrangler YJ, TJ, or JK. Its innovative design allows it to install in the back of your spare tire, rather than on top of it. This allows you to retain vital visibility through the rear of your Wrangler.
Durable Construction. The Olympic 4x4 Sierra rack is made out of good quality American steel, and finished with powder coat paint. The sturdy cargo fixture weighs 51 lbs when fully assembled, while the basket measures 42 inches by 17 inches by 4 inches. It can support 50 lbs if it is mounted on the tailgate of the Jeep, but much more if it is mounted on a quality tire carrier. The Sierra rack is made 100 percent in the U.S.A.. It is designed for use with the 1987-2020 Jeep Wrangler YJ, TJ, JK and JL models.
Easy Attachment and Removal. The Olympic Sierra rack attaches to the spare tire mounting area with its own mounting plate and receiver tube. The spare tire is placed over this tube, which passes through its center, and the cargo rack is fastened on over it. This puts the rack's bottom level with the center of the tire, meaning that cargo usually does not jut up above the top of the spare. This unique placement ensures the Sierra rack does not lessen visibility for the driver. The telescoping tube and cargo rack can be removed easily when access to the spare tire is needed.
Heavy Payload. The most important complementary product for the Sierra rack is the Olympic 4x4 700 tire swing, which provides an ideal base on which to attach the rack's mounting plate for maximum cargo payload.
Simple Installation. The Sierra rack is very easy to attach. The spare tire is removed and the mounting plate is bolted into place with the existing lug nuts. The receiver tube is fitted onto this and the tire is placed over this. Finally, the rack is attached to the outer end of the receiver tube via the telescoping tube that is used for mounting. No drilling is required for this mounting.
Application. This Olympic 4x4 Textured Black Sierra Rack is made to fit on all 1987-2020 Jeep Wrangler YJ, TJ, JK and JL models.
Depending on manufacturer's availability, this item may ship within 3-5 business days. You will be notified of any delays in manufacturing that surpass this timeframe.

Olympic 4x4 Sierra Rack
I received the Olympic Sierra 4x4 Rack in less than a week. Everything I needed to install was in the box except for the clear silicone. I purchased a small tube of clear silicone from Home Depot for under $3. The directions were easy it took me less than 30 minutes to assemble it. It fits on my spare tire perfectly and looks great installed. I have gotten many great compliments . The first time I used it was a trip to the mountains in Helen GA. My cooler fit perfectly. The best money I have spent in a long time.Helpful (13)

Rack on yj
Decent rack for something quick. I'm building one to fit my grizzly ice chest. Main reason I wanted a rack in the first place. Fit was a little loose, it is made of decent material.Helpful (12)

Great Rack for the Money!
I bought the Olympic Sierra Rack for my 2004 Jeep Wrangler as it was the only rack I could find coming off of the spare tire mount. The materials are solid, It fits great and I am very happy with it! The only negatives were it took 3+ weeks to receive it and the assembly instructions want you to seal everything with silicone to waterproof it.. I did it, it makes sense, would have been nice if it came assembled and already waterproofed - other than that it is a good deal for the $$!Helpful (14)
How can this mount on the center of the tire mount when there is a backup camera on the 2018 JL models?
This rack would interfere with the backup camera on the JL model Wranglers.
what is the distance from ground to the bottom of rack (vertigo)?What is the distance from rack mount inside to the outside of rack(horizontal)?Thanks!
The Olympic 4x4 Sierra Rack has the dimensions of 42 Inches x 17 Inches x 4 Inches.
how much weight can this hold if its mounted to the Rugged Ridge Spartacus HD Tire Carrier Kit? it says 50lbs for tailgate mounting but does that count for the upgraded hinge and tire mount?
The Olympic 4x4 Sierra Rack will have a 50lb weight rating when mounted to the tailgate, as this would put the combined weight of cargo plus the rack to 101Lbs, and with the added leverage of this being mounted beyond the spare tire, this can put a significant strain on the spare tire mounting points on the tailgate, as well as the hinges. The upgrade hinges will assist, however with the average weight of a spare tire added, this is pushing the stock mounting location for the tire mount to the limit, and an upgraded mount will not assist the stock bolting locations for this purpose.
