Latest project: making a swing away hitch receiver. I know they make bike racks with these built in, but I already have a bike rack and don't care to buy another. This swing arm is originally intended for a wheelchair carrier and is not all that expensive (>$140). Already cut the hitch down so it sits as close to the bumper as possible. Currently looking for a receiver with a right angle downtube, I'd like something that I can just bolt on, but I may just get a buddy to weld one on. Main issue with the current ones I've tried that would bolt on is that they sit up too high and the tailgate hits them when it's open (don't wanna have to swing it out EVERY time I open the rear, just want the option).
