Did you get the normal Journey on the one specific fro Disc Brakes? The normal one fits just fine. You do NOT need the disc brake model. But the normal model does need to stretch a smidge to fit.

And remember, 100% of the rack's load is sitting on the 2 mounting bolts. (The forward bolts that connection higher up at the top of the frame just keep it from swaying forward and backward. They aren't supporting the load.) The rack is only as strong as those 2 bolts. I can't remember what it comes with but I used stronger steel bolts to mount the rack. Bear in mind the steel bolts are harder than the aluminum frame. So if you cross thread it, you will screw up mounting hole quickly. Be careful. But it will make for a stronger rack.
Thanks for the advice. Yes, I ordered the regular Axiom Journey (non-disc model). Out of all the racks I researched, it looks more like an OEM rack that was meant to be there.

I'll keep an eye on the bolts.

The weight it can carry is staggering!
