Keep in mind that the hitch mounted 1UP doesn't use the same tray as the roof rack variant. The roof rack tray has T-slot that runs the entire length and the hitch mount one does not.Turned out great @spazzyfry123
As I'm searching to add my first Land Cruiser to the driveway (a 75-series Troopy at that), you're previously posted OwlVans images got me thinking if anyone has done something like that for the hinges on the Troopy.
I know that on their site they show 'need' for 180* swing doors, as well as a single hole drilled into the vehicle door. With a rear wheel mounted on the right hand rear door, something like yours could work well. I'd have to double the capacity with a carrier plate of sorts to that the receiver adapter. Without a door/bumper mounted spare, that plate design at OWL is mighty nice.
Obviously hinge design/spacing being much closer is one possible obstacle.
I'm waiting on my hitch mounted 1up to arrive via FEDEX guy any moment now. This could always end up being transferred between vehicles if need-be.
For my use, I needed to ensure I received the roof rack as my design relied heavily on the carriage bolt use. Food for thought.
Still working great for me. Next revision will be coming up with a 90° mount to suck the bike in to the truck. May utilize a hinge design of sorts to have ease of load/unload and then turn it for travel. We'll see....
