MAIN BAR LENGTH:
90% of vehicles are STANDARD LENGTH Main Bar.
Style side Pickup Trucks and SUV’s with NO spare tire on rear door are STANDARD LENGTH.
Jeeps with a spare tire on the rear door, 4×4’s with swing away spare tires, jerry can holders will need a longer main bar.
On the standard length main bar your bikes inside foot peg is 9″ from the center of the hitch pin hole.
Jeeps want 50-100mm (2″-4″) between the foot peg and the spare tire.
Pickups with a service body want 50-100mm (2″-4″) between the foot peg and end of tray.
Standard length bar is not supplied with longer bar option.
If you run a tape out 50″, 60″, 70″ from the top of your hitch to the ground you’ll see the loading angle.
50″ Ramp – On a standard height 4WD (receiver is up to 20″ off the ground) your bike is easy to load.
60″ Ramp – If you have a lift kit or your hitch is 22″ + off the ground this will make it easier to load .
70″ Ramp – Higher lifts and bigger tires will need this.
HIGH LIFT BARS:
For 90% of people with 4×4’s the standard height works fine, fire trails, easy access 4WD into camp sites.
If you want to do the Desert, Cape, High Country or any other serious 4×4 then clearance is king.
Also stronger as it’s braced with 4mm Bluescope plate each side of joints.
Lifts are measured center to center.
