Do you think it could handle a 200-300cc 2 stroke enduro type bike?
I think it would be fine. I went down one Jeep trail that was a little to much but on road or gravel it is fine. I use a extra strap from bike rack to roof rack but Im a little overly cautious
I have a hitch mount hauler and have carried an F650GS on there before. I regularly carry my Husky 501 on it
I had my 500 EXC on the back of mine a few times. The position of the carrier worked out perfect, where the bike was snug up against the spare, so it really wasn't going anywhere, even on so rougher terrain. I definitely dug in the carrier a few times though.
I would agree with your assessment, I have a 18 JLU sahara with 35's and the 4 cylinder and while it actually does not feel under powered I am normally in 7th going down the highway. I would like 4.10's but mine is a lease for a company car so I will not be gearing.
Just ordered the BajaRack for my TrailHawk. Been using Thule AeroBlades but for random stuff I wind up needing space for on trips this will work better. Mfr. pic below, will post up the real thing in about a month when I have it (assuming the zombies haven’t taken over yet).
On 2 door Jeeps, not the school bus version ?
Mine is a 4-door.
My hitch is just bolted to the bumper. If off-roading you may do better with a frame mounted hitch or aftermarket bumper. Not sure. Its fine for me
There's enough rigid structure on one of those bumpers to bolt a hitch to?!?
I've never bothered checking on my JKU with factory tow package, but I would have assumed it was bolted to the frame. Hmmm, guess I should look.
No. Im wrong it is frame mounted
Just loaded up
Cant wait to social distance tomorrow morning
My friend got new tires delivered to his house yesterday
The Mopar hitch for both the JK and JL is a pretty simple hitch that bolts to the frame behind the bumper.
Most of the aftermarket ones are very similar and bolt to the same place.
I have a Draw-tite that has a longer receiver tube than the Mopar on mine.
Works better for the bike rack I have and just general trailering as the ball is not under the spare.
It bolts up the same way though.
I had to run an extension tube for my bike rack when I had my JKU and a factory hitch.
I see a few open square inches where he could bolt some more stuff onto.
With a color matched winch cable, even.
Orange Synthetic Winch Rope.
A must have, even if I don't have a winch.
