I found a Cycle Rack on Craigs. Everyone seems to dig them on this forum so it came home with me.
This thing is huge! (and heavy 8lbs!). I suppose I won't have a issue mounting my Rigid box. To those that have them,does the rack get in the way offroad?
At least now I can mount side bags easier. The military should be replacing the Humvee with TWs with racks instead of 250k JLTV trucks.

The CycleRack is also great off road. Nice to have something to grab onto when your stuck in the mud.
Agreed. Fairly impressed with mine so far.

Way too many past bikes and builds to list. I won't bore you. Questions? Just ask.
CycleRack (and Jimbo Shield) should be standard equipment on a TW as far as I am concerned!
The CR is a $200 add on that substantially increases the load carrying capacity of the TW rear. Your OEM rack is fine for carrying light loads but not much else. I never noticed the CR in my way off road however I never added side bags to a CR which I am sure would be in the way. Some here who have laid their TWs down on trails have found the rack can trap your legs but on the flip side they have also found the CR does protect the back end when you do go down. It is a completely personal purchase as to what rack fits your needs best. If all you need to carry is a gallon of milk or a 6 pack of beer the OEM rack is just about right. The CR can handle a couple cases of beer in a cooler with ice.

Since light travels faster than sound, some people appear bright until you hear them speak.If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.
