Review & Installation Video

Review & Install Video

Construction. Rugged Ridge's Easy Load trail rack is manufactured out of tough welded steel tubing and finished with resilient powder coating. The fixture weighs 16 pounds, and the basket portion measures 39 inches by 22 inches by 4.5 inches when assembled. Carrying capacity is 50 lbs, well above the dust and debris kicked up from the trail by the Jeep's wheels. The rack has a 5 year limited warranty against defects and fits 1987-2002 Jeep Wrangler YJ and TJ vehicles.

Specs. The Easy Load provides uniquely positioned rear carrying capacity, putting coolers, tents, camp stoves, and other items far above ground level and thus keeping them cleaner. The Euro esthetics of the rack make it look good besides functioning well. It is also very quick and easy to fit, with no drilling or cutting involved.

Application. Assembling the basket is the first step in installing the Rugged Ridge easy load trail rack. The spare tire and its mount are removed, exposing 9 mounting holes. 4 of these are used to bolt on the vertical mount for the trail rack, and the other 5 are used to replace the spare tire mount. The spare tire and basket are attached, all accessible nuts and bolts are tightened, and the rack is ready for use.

I have a swing-away tire carrier already installed. Will this bolt up to the tailgate without the spare tire carrier holding it on?


  • The Rugged Ridge Easy Load Trail Rack can be installed with a swing away tire carrier as opposed to the OEM tire carrier.

    Easy trail rack

    The rack is pretty solid for carrying only 50 pound limit. I had to buy 4 bolts to secure the uprights because the ones they sent didn't fit. I also had to muscle the basket onto the upright arms. All in all, the unit adds extra storage space when hunting or off-roading.
