I recently had to ad a topper to the ranger for work purposes. The topper conflicting with my MX bikes didn't even cross my mind, because I have been wanting to buy hitch-hauler for quite some time. Not only would it save me some headache, it would REALLY help when we took my dad's full size truck to the races, we could haul one extra bike with no trailer.
Off to CL I went to find a hitch. Scored one the first day for $75 bucks, and installed it yesterday. I soon realized that this thing was LOW.
I'm hoping you all can check out the pics, and give me some advice. When the carrier goes into the hitch, it sits pretty low. When you thrown on a 350lb Dual sport bike or a 250lb race bike, it takes it almost to the ground. I am not kidding when I say that there were only 2 inches of clearance from the rear tie-down point to the ground.
What do you think the easiest solution would be? I would have to get a BL to flip the hitch. Add-a-leaf? Different tires?
