Bike Rack W/ Tire Carrier

I have a OR-FAB tire carrier with the Gas cans (plastic ones, whatever you call them).

How is everyone running a bike carrier with tire carriers? Do you think I could get an over the tire bike rack? Or is it to much weight.

I do have a towing hitch on the jeep. But from the sheet metal to the end of tire it is 22.5in. Thats a hell of an extension isn't it? Just curious how you all were doing it. Thanks in advance.

And the reason for the bike rack is my girlfriend wants me to be healthy... and bike... and shit...

2008 JKU, ProComps, 35 Kevlar MT/R's, Dana 44s, locked, 5.13, Artic Trusses, RCVs, all types of OR-Fab stuff, PIAA's, 2.5in Suspension lift, Adams driveshaft, Teraflex SpeedBumps, Warn Winch and some other goodies...

The alternative is to get a roof rack and put the bikes on top. But then I would worry about low bridges or forgetting that they are up there when I park in the garage. Would really cut short any type of riding.
