Hey Joe!

Yes! I made twin steel receivers set on a 20 degree pitch. They're bolted to the truck where the factory tow hooks would've been. Pull 2 receiver pins and she's hanging in the garage waiting on the next trip! Look close and you can see the 2 receiver pins.

I know not everyone is gonna like the looks of the pitched-up receiver tubes....but as far as clearance when your dropping down the buggy access at the bottom......you don't have to worry about the rack plowing into the sand!!! It's more work than doing straight tubes and mounts....but the pro's out weigh the cons in my opinion!!!

Git'r done!!!

Very very nice setup. Just be really careful on the local streets, u need Lots of clearance with a 10' rod or longer. And definitely dont leave your rods out , while on any of the LI southern parkways for example.
On the beach, you are SET though.
Very NICE!!!

How is the air flow for the radiator on those HOT Summer days?

Please look closely at the opening for the air-ram just under the rack......if a rack becomes a heating issue any auto-parts store sells aftermarket radiator fans that can be mounted to aid in the cooling process...hope this helps!
