Good, but could be better.
Comments about Thule Spare Meâ„¢ 963PRO:
I mounted this on my Jeep Wrangler in December 2007. For many, many years it was what I loved most about my Jeep. It was easy to use and always ready. There were some problems, and these have been mentioned by others:1) The bike can come loose. Mine came off on a highway at 75 mph. Thank God no one was hurt. Now I always lock the bikes to the frame with a steel cable.2) The rack rusts. Mine finally became unusable in 2016 and I had to remove it. I do think it should last the life of my vehicle.Given all that, I am on this website because I am buying another.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I've had this rack for just over a year and love it. I have a 2015 Jeep Wrangler Sahara (2-door), and it fit perfectly on the spare tire. It's been solid with minimal vibration when carrying my mountain bike on both on and off road. It's a bit awkward when carrying two full sized mountain bikes, but that's the only slight issue I've had.
Do not buy ! Your Bike will be lost

Vibration from the road causes the rubber straps to come loose. I lost one bike. The straps popped off and my bike smashed along the highway. Then I got new straps and tried it again. This time my bike tried to fall off again two times in a row. Do not buy this rack. I'm going to never use mine again and buy something else.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
