Re: Bike (Bicycle) Racks - Tailgate mounting - MY2014

It will be fine with two bikes. Just make sure the foot is down on the bumper so that the downwardforce is not 100% on the spoiler. The spoiler seems sturdy.

Re: Bike (Bicycle) Racks - Tailgate mounting - MY2014

"Saris Bones" is what I ended up with. Works fine. Didn't cause any damage. I only carried one bike.

Re: 2014 Overland Speakers

Fair addition, but that is only on the top level "Executive" trim - much like the Summit with the HK system. So it is an option effectively.
