I noticed you have the hitch mount picture with the smaller rack.



I'm having trouble getting mine on a hitch rack with a jeep tire on the back if the larger cyclerack is installed. Do you have the same trouble?

Hello Larry,

I do not have a problem with the Joe Hauler Rack on the back of my Jeep. I lucked out in that Joe Hauler Rack's are built in my town. So I actually went down there and tested them out before I purchased the rack. This particular one has an extended receiver sleeve. I just went out and measured it and it is 26" from dead center of the hitch pin to the middle of the tray. The guys at Joe Hauler also traded out the loading ramp to one of there wide models. This allows the bike to roll up the ramp freely. I will say that even with the 26" I am very close at the handlebar end next to the tire. But then again my tire on this Jeep is a 315/75/16. That is close to 13" deep. Hopefully something in this rambling will help you out.

Can you add a photo of how you mounted the Pelican case to your Cyclerack?



Thanks,



Mark


Well I will give credit to the original owner. He simply drilled 8 small holes in the bottom of the Pelican box. It is attached with 4 heavy duty zip ties. This is not really my style but it has worked. I think two aluminum pieces of flat stock per side sandwiched between the Pelican and the rack would sound better. If it's not broke, why fix it. I do carry a few extra zip ties just in case. At the present moment it is kind of like a break away system if I were to lay the motorcycle down.



Good question!

Gear,



I have wanted to call you and discuss this a bit. In short I believe you to be an amazing very lucky man to be able to explore this great American back-country as a member of the Overlanders. I have thought, discussed, even brought the topic up to other off-road enthusiast my ideas of back-country exploration versus just convoying to a given trailhead and switching to low lock and crawling up obstacles most others have to winch or endure serious body damage even scraped up wheels trying to claw their way up and down very difficult trails. As an older medium-aged guy I have disabilities that no longer meld well to that sort of physical activity, especially at high altitudes.



That... And the fact I own a very cool lookin' Jeep I no longer wish to thrash so as to sustain my manly ego in front of the "group" any longer. My how age matures a man.



As for the wife? She's very THANKFUL!!! As I once spent even the grocery money on Jeep crap many years ago.



Switching gears... I very much am interested in your TW. But the distance is a problem for me right now as I was just recently switched to a higher dosage of heart medication making me very sleepy at any given time throughout my day. Driving requires a back-up driver I have been unable to secure. My wife on the other hand, actually thinks I should sell my Ranger Rzr and the Rucks and buy the BMW 800GS as I could use it to run errands around town to include getting on freeways without the worries of being ran over by Mister Husky 18 wheeler with his ARB Bull Bars ready to devour poor little weenie sized motorcycles having the gal to share the lane with him.




So, just that you know that is the current sitch-ee-mah-ation at this time!



Pretty lame sounding I know but there it is...



I still cannot speak much publicly about my disabilities, it just sucks.
