Which 1UP do you guys recommend? I've been tossing 2-4 bikes in the back of my 4Runner for months now and i'd like a rack solution.
I'd vote for the 2" heavy duty double and a couple of add-ons. It's not going to be cheap but you'll never have to buy another rack. Between the weight and the rust, I was tired of fussing with the Thule and Swagman racks I had. I purchased the 2" heavy duty double and planned on selling the Swagman. Within a month, I bought a 2" super duty single for the wife and 2 add-ons and sold every other rack I had. Two years later, I have zero regrets and still wish I would have done it sooner. I use the single most of the time as I don't like leaving the rack on the truck and it takes less than 5 minutes to install it.
I've been shopping for a decent rack in the 300-400 range but honestly, based on the information in this thread, i'd rather get a 1UP than anything. I just need something that can carry 2 bikes minimum.
Looks like the one you recommended is $569 silver or $619.00 black. What's the silver finish? just a natural aluminum, i'm assuming?
Yes, the silver is just aluminum. The black is anodized. I like the looks of the black but I'm too cheap to pay an extra $50 for fashion.
