RRO Roof Rack With Tire
Learned the hard way that having the spare tire mounted on the roof, using a Rocky Road Outfitters Roof Rack, that the tire blocks the satellite antenna half of the time. When driving Southeast, South, or Southwest, the Sirius radio cuts in and out quite often. I'm sure it's the spare tire blocking the signal.
Choices are to install a new satellite antenna elsewhere, or not mount the spare on the roof. But when I go to a larger tire, the spare will probably need to go on the roof.
