Mine felt tight (the need to adjust it a lot) initially and it went away. I suspect letting a little air out of the tires will help that too.Forgot to mention the steering takes a little getting used to. The mechanism feels tight but the steering (track of vehicle) tends to wander somewhat.
By the way, I have no skin in this game, but some like one or two of these on their rigs (front and back receiver hitches notwithstanding)
for longer Kayacs on shorter Wranglers (like your 2 door)
another manufacturer who sells on etrailer.com makes a similar product. Good luck
