Wilco Offroad Hitchgate Max
So I ordered one of these from 4wheel Parts to mount my Spare tire back in April and still waiting on it to be delivered. Currently my Spare tire is located behind the rear gaucho. I'm starting to get a little concerned tho', having mounted a rear hitch mount thule t2 bike rack for a while now, with how violently the bike rack shakes when I hit bumps or driving offroad. Even more so because during my last trip, the lively rear end finally caused my 12 year old thule to break at the front tire hold down mount while I was driving down the highway. My bike got wedged between the bike rack and rear of vehicle with teh front tire only a couple of inches from the road. Luckily I was alerted by a motorcyclist and was able to stop in time to avoid a bad situation.
Oh, and one last thing, I do have some plans to upgrade the suspension with the Agile Offroad RIP kit which from my understanding will alleviate the liveliness and bounce of the Quigley setup.
So with that incident, I'm starting to get some concerns about using the hitchgate max with such a heavy load like a rear tire. Was also planning on getting the fuel carrier as well as the cargo carrier for it. But that's all up in the air now. Not sure if I should just cancel the order and find a different solution. Anyone use one of these and can comment on this?
