Yakima Bike Rack Mod.

After all the help I have received from this forum I thought I would add this minor mod that may help someone in the future.

Removing 1/2inch allows rack to lower enough so tailgate can be opened without removing hitch.

The less weight the better, the JK tailgates are known to break welds

I wanted to mount recovery ramps to my spare tire, hence the hitch mounted back rack.
