  1. Hitch Bike Rack recommendations?

    My pleasure. Glad I could help. I might go 2.25 myself someday, but I envision being in 4 rack configuration most of the time so that extra .25 is nice when reaching from 4th rack. Mostly I think I didn’t want to regret cutting to much. im brainstorming what to do about magnetic pin since...
  2. Hitch Bike Rack recommendations?

    I bought a 4 bike EZ pull. I totally recommend EZ pull, even if you only have 2 bike rack. Not so much to help with reach but to ensure you pull on the latch evenly. 1up notches have tight tolerances and if you don’t pull evenly it’s hard to tilt. Initially i wanted to leave rack on all the...
  3. Hitch Bike Rack recommendations?

    Thanks for responding. I actually pulled trigger on passenger side bc we camp a lot and it’s convenient to have tailgate and bike on same side. Fortunately tailgate opens enough to use tailgate table.

    I have rubicon a I have a rubicon w 35” wheels and a spare tire relo kit that moved spare up ~1” and no issue w normal bracket (tested w friends 1up double rack). I have about a 1/2” of clearance to rack in bike loaded position. I do use 7” hitch extension which I think is required regardless...

    I forgot to ask. What configuration of the 1up did you install? 2,3 or 4 bike rack?
  9. Hitch Bike Rack recommendations?

    How do you like it (driver side) so far? Any regrets? Do you have larger (than stock) spare and did you install relo kit to move spare up a bit?

    Hi Kent, Did you end up ordering passenger side RakAttach?
  11. Hitch Bike Rack recommendations?

    Did the guys at 1up recommend the driver side swing for wrangler? I keep wanting to keep it all on the same side so driver side is clear of obstacles, but even my current Thule apex swing keeps the tailgate from opening all the way. opens enough to utilize my tailgate table though. Not sure how...
  12. Hitch Bike Rack recommendations?

    Personally I’m struggling with the rule of thumb that hitch extensions reduce tongue weight by 50%. Most racks require an extension to clear spare on wrangler. That would bring tongue weight to 175lbs! With a 4 bike rack that leaves no lbs for the 4 bikes! It’s tough being a fam of 4 in a...
  13. Hitch Bike Rack recommendations?

    You probably purchased a rack by now but for what it’s worth the Thule apex swing is a great option. A bit of a challenge to load 4 bikes (especially if you don’t want them to ding each other) but it’s worked great for the past 5 yrs! I’ve bought higher end bikes so im looking for a platform...
  14. Hitch Bike Rack recommendations?

    Hi, That’s awesome that the reverse brackets don’t require an extension. I was looking to buy a RakAttach but was concerned about the impact to tongue weight of using extender/swing (apparently it reduces tongue weight by 50%). I the tailgate can be opened w bikes off that’s great. When bikes r...

    I had the lift installed a couple months ago. love the way it drives. Only thing I added was Front adj track bar.Brackets r included for rear so no need for rear adj track bar. off road tracked well (nothing serious so far) n on road was way better than stock. Drives great on high way. Find...
  16. AEV 2.5"

    i agree. 37s a bit more than want to deal with for everyday use. thankfully both my wife and i like the gap in fender look so no reason to go 37s. lol your jeep caught my eye b/c i really like the way it looks with 35s!
  17. AEV 2.5"

    nice looking jeep. are those 35s?
