Re: Cool Useful Ideas for 2" hitch?

Studgun, that's a LOT of weight to be hanging out back there so far behind the rear axle. How does it affect handling dynamics? Admittedly it probably doesn't exceed the tongue weight rating of pulling a large trailer...

Cool idea, nonetheless!

Yeah, it's only a 250 and it's well under tongue weight, and QuadraLift levels out the car. Handles much better than when towing my SeaDoo. Don't even notice it's there, except for the diminished rear visibility. I usually leave the reverse camera up on the screen so I can see if the bike shifts, but it's a very tight setup and high quality straps don't slip. Zero wobble too. I'm impressed by it.

Re: Cool Useful Ideas for 2" hitch?

Put my GSXR 750 on a similar setup. You could tell it was back there on the curves in the Mtns, but with QL it was great. Highly recommended for anyone with light enough bike.

Re: Cool Useful Ideas for 2" hitch?

Studgun, how the hell did you get the same license plate for all 3 vehicles?

Had it on the bike first, then went to transfer it to the Ford and they told me that I could have it on both since cars and motorcycles have different plate codes (C and MC).

When I got the Jeep I got the plates remade so I'd have a spare for the bike rack. I then did a plate swap so I had the personalised plates on the Jeep. I took the photo before I swapped the plates on the Ford to regular ones.

I have RHYS on my SeaDoo trailer too. It's only a one-off payment of $147 for personalised plates in the NT, and $43 for a remake, so I figured why the hell not.

How did you leave the reverse camera up when driving?
