Anyone have one I could borrow for this weekend? Need to pick it up today/tonight. I ordered one several weeks ago and it hasn't arrived yet, and I have no tracking info...

I've got a receiver hitch - 2" ball with 3" drop. Is that what you're looking for?

No - I need an extension tube that extends the receiver outward 12-18" from the truck. Thanks though.

Sumthin like this:

I bought that bike rack setup from Mike before he moved:

It has an extension piece that might work for what you are needing but for some reason I recall that the top part will hit with larger tires :confused: - Of course I'm way south and won't be home till later tonight to confirm for you...

I think I need to pick up one of those extension dealyos though like you bought...Where did you find them?

Don't have one here either. 88th & Sheridan is pretty north side though.. $25, and comes with a step!

^That actually might be the ticket. Thanks!

I found one at Jax, but it was only a 7" extension and wasn't quite long enough (1" too short) to work. :mad:

Jeff - The one I bought is like this:

I plan on running it "upside down" and putting a bike rack in the bottom receiver. It'll ensure I can open the tailgate, and make it easier to load/unload bikes. For you trailer folks, it's handy for adding something above the trailer.

I have one but am south, C-470 and Wadsworth. It is just what you need, 18" extension for 2" receiver LMK if you want it. call me, that is the best way to contact me. 3o3=829--o7o3

Thanks Tom. Too far of a haul for me tonight, but I appreciate the offer.

No worries, figured but I thought I would offer. Most likely cost you as much in fuel RT as the extension.

It sounds like you got the bike rack on the spare tire installed?
