where to buy hitch mount racks?

10 posts in this topic

where do you guys get them from? ive only seen like 2 different models online, do you make them? specialty shops? what is it...

 

basically heres the deal, ive been putting my list together for the FJ for awhile, finding exactly what i want, pricing it yadda yadda yadda and planning to basically put it all together at once (in a two month window). but i cant find cooler/rod racks.

 

i have a 2" reciever in the rear and ill be getting a front bumper with a 2" reciever (attached pic). so depending on where i go i can mount it to the rear or front. or switch it out when i get to where im goin ect...

 

i guess id like one about 4ft long, 2ft deep with a rail around it probably about a foot or 18" high... i can add rod holders or get one with them, doesnt really matter to me.

custom ..

 

imho buying what is 'on-line ' is buying junk ..

 

thinner tubing , non anodized

 

to get what 'you' want you have to have it made , but you have to watch out for the 'fly by nite' fabricators .. but from someone that has been building racks and knows what they are doing ..

 

ya just can't get one of these on line

oh man i miss my bumper....drool.gif stan builds awesome bumper..i had his prototype.

you gotta go custom..i had a cooler rack designed last year to fit that bumper exactly. any store bought cooler rack will have the bottom of the cooler above the hood. I had about a 9" drop on mine because of the hieght of the front receiver on the bumper.
