Dbuck, not sure wether you've seen my system I've got for my explorer (on our trip to Austin last year) for carrying the bike, but it was cheap to build and holds the bike great. If you want I can take pics and send them to ya or post them here. Just let me know.

I'd like to see some picks, I'm looking for a cheap way to get my bike around without getting monkey in Texas heat (I'm from MN and not use to it here yet).

You have a SportTrac huh... was hoping there was something I could do for my Grand Cherokee... Oh well a trailer doesn't cost too much... Guess it is my only option. Thanks anyway! BTW Cool setup, looks like it works nicely!

That is exactly what I want, I'm also not comfortable with the strength of it because I know the tongue load on my hitch receiver is 400lbs. I really want something that I can bolt onto more points on the frame of my Jeep to control twisting and the extra weight that my hitch can't stand. Anyone have bad experiences with one of these? Loading and unloading doesn't look like it would be that bad though.

Basically have it because it will hold the bike straight up without straps when I first load it, so it's easy to then just walk around it and strap it down, plus it gives me a place to run a lock through aswell. Everyone to there own though.
