Default FS: Thule 936 Bike Rack

Basic 2 bike hitch rack, probably about 10 years old. Made of steel, works fine, a little rust but nothing too bad. The cradles are a couple of years old, not the original but new style Thule from a 936/937XT (these are an improvement over the original). Fits a 2" receiver.

It's missing most (maybe all) of the plastic caps from the ends. I took them out years ago because water would collect inside and naturally they are long since gone. The ramped shaped cap at the bottom is broken. I dunno if it's available as a replacement but it never worked very well anyway and the enterprising fabricator should have no trouble fixing up a better tilt-stop.

The worn out, faded vintage COMBA sticker comes at no additional cost.

$40

hey Dave, quick question: I'm test fitting this now getting ready for next week. If my rear tail gate and hatch already opens with bikes installed, is there any reason why I should even try to fab up a "tilt stop?" I was all ready to start drilling & cutting, but can't seem to think it's actually this easy. thoughts?

Looks like the tail gate and hatch clear it, so looks like you're fine. I had to lower it to open my back window. Is that fully in the receiver and bolted? It looks really long.

yeah, fully bolted. One of the features of the ARB is its incredibly low departure angle, and how they stuck the receiver way out there. I won't be running Cliffhanger with this installed, so should be good for a lot of I-70 and Rabbit Valley time..

edit: and a cross post from the current welding thread, but I ended up modifying it tonight to reduce some side to side action. I think this should work pretty well? I'm going to do something similar to my receiver motorcycle carrier.

I don't remember it being terrible, but that looks like it would make it super stable. We've done White Rim and plenty of other mild wheeling with it, getting back to the 24 hours course, Barlett Wash.

Something is gonna move so the easy to fix or replace rack is better than denting your bike frame or rubbing the paint off the bumper. You can see the rub marks from our bikes, there are matching marks on bikes that cost ten times what the rack did...

But OTOH you don't want the thing bouncing around breaking windows or falling off. Those straps are probably right the right balance.

I'm just trying to figure out why the guy who builds and sells roof racks has his bikes on the back You should give the receiver rack to me.

Art Hog might remember a reason from the WRT why bumper racks are sometimes better than roof racks when 'wheeling around overhangs.
