I drive a Ford Ranger pickup with a topper. I'd like to be able to transport two bikes to the trailhead using a 2" receiver rack...but I lack the receiver / hitch.
Hitches are expensive, so I was wondering: would this thing work? Though intended for ATVs, It fits the ball hitch hole on the step bumper of my truck:
Any risks? It's definitely beefy enough to hold the relatively light weight of two bikes and the rack itself (70-80lbs, I'm guessing), but do you think the leverage of the rack and bikes would allow it to sway-- possibly working the nut loose?
