Awesome!! I just picked one up from a local store, maybe Ace Hardware? I see they are plentiful on Amazon too.Hey, I have the exact same set up (JKU on 35's, 16 500 exc, HF Hitch Hauler). I just moved from NYC to CO and just got back into riding dirt too. Kind of weird actually.
Anyway, where did you get the hitch extension? I took off my rear bumper a long time ago so I have the exposed frame. Lately, I have been tying up my peg out of the way and strapping the inside fork of the KTM to the frame of the Jeep and strapping the outside fork down to the hitch hauler itself. The tank shroud does rest against the spare tire but the setup seems to be rock solid. No sway or anything and I did about 1 mile of offroading before I unloaded the bike to go ride.
I'm trying to figure out which setup will be better in the long run.
Still trying to re-learn how to ride dirt but this bike is pretty amazing.
That's awesome. I had a hitch carrier on my old TJ two door and you could definitely feel the bike back there. It made the front of the Jeep feel real light and flighty. The LJ should be better though.Awesome!! I just picked one up from a local store, maybe Ace Hardware? I see they are plentiful on Amazon too.
I'm going on a ride this weekend to a new area of Michigan, but I'm going to take the bike up with my LJ this time....I have a ton of parts just sitting at home waiting to go on it to put on 37 Iroks with hutchinson beadlocks, but its sitting totally stock at the moment as far as the suspension goes. I'm curious to see how it will handle the weight behind it, I don't expect it to be quite as nice as the JK with AEV suspension Will be sure to post some pictures of the trip.
