Thanks!

If you aren't putting the bikes on the swing out, you'll have no trouble with the extender. I added in my thread that I bolt both the extender and the bike rack into the hitch, not sure...

Couple of small issues so far with the duals:

One: Don't be a dumb dumb. Don't forget/lose your shifter oil slinger for the front case. Lots of gear oil will belch around the shift ball on the...

I should point out that I bolt the extender and rack on. So there is no movement like there would be with just a simple hitch pin. I just use the Yakima Capture nut deals with the lock bolt so the...

The extender works fine on the washboards. Its definitely a bit more wobbly with it though. Noticeable, but not bad.

Installed Dual Cases in the truck. On this truck, I left both cases stock, which puts the final crawl ratio at 3.9x2.3x2.7x4.3 ~ 104:1. Plenty slow for this truck.

LOL, I get a lot of questions about that grill!

Back on another set of these. 285/75R16's on the new runner. Had some Yokohamas in the same size, but switched out just to get back to the tried and true for peace of mind on the trails.
