The Thule Hitch Ski Carrier converts most Thule trailer hitch bike racks into a ski rack that fits up to six pairs of skis or four snowboards. It converts Trailblazer, Hitching Post, Expressway, Rak-N-Loc, and Spare Me bike racks. Thule makes loading the Hitch Ski Carrier easy by included a rubber strap that holds the skis while you tighten the locking arm. Thule redesigned the Hitch Ski Carrier to accommodate fatter skis. The Hitch Ski Carrier locks with the same cylinders as your bike carrier, so you can just swap them when you convert the rack.

Install and use problems
Not a huge fan of this ... but not many other options out there for my Jeep Wrangler. Paired with the simple Thule bike rake and the install was a pain b/c the instructions aren't that clear. Only holds 6 skis total. The locks on the end keep on getting stuck so I may return it based on all the trouble.

Do I need the Thule bike rack in order to use the Thule Snowboard rack on a Jeep Wrangler?
Yeah, the key word in the description is convert.
Mount it up
The carrier is easier to assemble than IKEA furniture. I'm using the Hitch Ski Carrier with the Thule Spare Me Spare Tire Mount on a 1998 Jeep Wrangler. The ski carrier fits snugly on the Mount but is slightly off center. It's not going anywhere but if it fit a bit more flush I'd like it even better.
