When using this hitch extension for a bike rack, it is IMPERATIVE that you install anti-sway bolts and nuts to prevent wobble in the extension. Failure to do so may result in metal fatigue and catastrophic failure. We recommend exclusively the Softride 25219 Tightening Hitch Pin for this application. Still have questions?

- Carry more than two bikes on your Wrangler!Review by Cracks & Racks - Brandon
I sell one of these to almost every customer with a Wrangler, looking for a bike rack that carries more than two bikes. The extension allows the hitch to get out from under the large, sometimes oversized, spare-tire. This allows the bike rack to be properly inserted into the hitch and the tire wont interfere with the mechanisms of the bike rack. Plus, it does not limit you to a couple of bike rack options for the spare-tire. You can now select from almost any hitch mounted bike rack. This product gives you options!
Ease of Installation Functionality Quality / Durability Overall Value
It is nice to pair it with Softride's 25219 Tightening Hitch Pin. This will not only lock the extension to the hitch, but it will also take out the wobble, so your bikes are not slamming around.
TIP: This is steel and will rust. Remove when not needed. (Posted on 10/21/2016)
