We’re in the midst of what is shaping up to be an epic Winter here in the Northeast (knock on wood). With record numbers of skiers and riders headed to the mountains in their Jeep Wranglers, the eternal question of how to get your skis to their destination safely and securely is raised once again. What’s that you ask? “Can’t I just throw my skis or snowboards down the middle of the inside of my Jeep”? Go for it. And enjoy the wet snow melting all over you and your interior while you and your buddies/family elbow your gear for room during the long ride home. Is there a better option(s)? Yes.
Thule has updated their Jeep Ski Rack solutions for us for 2013 (see above). Step 1: Attach the Thule Spare Me (963PRO) Bicycle Rack to your Jeep Wrangler’s Rear Mounted Spare Tire. Yes this doubles as a bicycle rack in the off season. Step 2: Hook the newly re-designed Thule 9033 Tram (carrying capacity of up to 6 pairs of skis or 4 snowboards) to the Spare Me. Step 3: Get up to the mountains and start having fun! Note: This solution works for any Jeep (or other vehicle) with a spare tire.
The other option for a Jeep Wrangler Ski Rack here at JeepWorld.com, which also happens to be the solution I use personally, is the Thule 300 Footer with Thule 58″ Load Bars combined with a Thule Flat Top Ski & Snowboard Carrier. Simply attach the footers to the rain gutters on your Jeep’s Hard Top and attach one of Thule’s Flat Top Ski Carriers to the load bars. Voila! Another easy and safe solution for getting your gear to your favorite ski area. This solution is for 2007-2013 Jeep Wrangler JKs with Hard Tops only.
Both options are available here at JeepWorld and can ship same day (if your order arrives by 2pm EST).
We know that your Jeep is your favorite vehicle, so tell us what your favorite mountain to ski and ride is in the comments below.

It’s that time of year again! Whether we like it or not, Winter is on the way. Is your Jeep ready for all the foul (or wonderful, depending on your perspective) weather that’s headed your way? There are a couple of must-have’s for your Jeep in regards to protecting your vehicle’s interior from all the snow, slush, water, salt, and sand that our roads and parking lots can send its way. Start off with the all-weather Jeep Floor Mats . With great options from Mopar, Weathertech, and Rugged Ridge, www.JeepWorld.com has your Jeep’s Floors covered. See this list below for mats to fit your model Jeep vehicle:
Jeep Wrangler Floor Mats, Grand Cherokee Floor Mats, Jeep Liberty Floor Mats, Compass Floor Mats, Jeep Patriot Floor Mats, Commander Floor Mats, and even Jeep Cherokee XJ Floor Mats are a great way to protect your vehicle’s interior and extend the life of your Jeep!
Another must for interior protection is the Jeep Cargo Tray. An awesome way to protect your Jeep’s cargo area, these heavy duty trays are a must for anyone who lives in a Winter Weather Climate and enjoys an outdoors lifestyle. Available for the Jeep Grand Cherokee, Liberty, Commander, Compass & Patriot, and Wrangler. An extra-thick and rugged Cargo Tray by Weathertech is available for the Cherokee XJ, if you’ve still got one of those bad boys on the road.
For those of us who think Winter is wonderful (count me in as one of those fools), we’ve got a full line up of Jeep Ski and Snowboard Racks to fit your vehicle and help you transport your skis and snowboards to the mountains. We happily offer both roof-mount and spare tire mount options as rack solutions for your Jeep.
Either way, humans weren’t made to hibernate all Winter. Let www.JeepWorld.com, your online source for Jeep Accessories, help you get out there and have fun!
