Re: Rear Tire Carrier - HITCHGATE SOLO

Great pics @student4life,

This is why the Solo doesn't move, wiggle or make noise. (odd, picture isn't posting)


FYI to those asking in the thread, the License Plate Relocation kit will be available in a few weeks, helping keep Johnny Law thinking about other things.

It will also have available a single Roto-Pax fuel mount that can also accommodate a hi-lift jack if so desired.

Attached is the picture of the wedge-lock anti-rock/wobble/noise device and a picture of what the Roto-Pax/Hi-lift set up will looks when it's ready.

License Plate Relocation kit pics on the way.

Re: Rear Tire Carrier - HITCHGATE SOLO

@WilcoOffroad - Thanks for sharing the photos of the setup! Is the Hi-Lift lockable on that setup?

It isn't lockable stand-alone but a cable looped through the wheel and into the hi-lift is what I do to take care of that.

It's still a Hitchgate! But Wilco was called "Tiregate" back then. =) DBA "Wilco Automotive Products"

Re: Rear Tire Carrier - HITCHGATE SOLO

Very nice idea,Love the whole look But defiantly needs some tweaking IMO , Not liking the fact that the rear view camera is blocked , I know you have somewhat of a view but really all depends on the style wheel you have , ( a relocation camera kit ) would be great and im sure the rear back up sensors would have to be disabled ,, and come on Wilco more pictures on this HITCHGATE SOLO
!! Maybe a relocation rear license plate with a camera ?? Thanks guys for all the info
Again I do love this setup a lot !! , Just not sure if im ready to splurge 900 bucks and loose some of my favorite features (Rear camera / back up sensors)

I would have put on a roof rack and been done with it.
