5 Stars Nice fit

The extender gets my bike rack out past the spare tire on my Jeep. Now we can take our bicycles with us when we go out in the motor home.

Purchased to extend a mobility chair transport rack to keep it from hitting the lift gate of our 2014 Subaru outback. Works perfect, and doesn't loosen or rattle while driving long distances. Great price, free shipping, quality product.

5 Stars RV reciever for towing dingy.

Just the solution for extending the hitch so the tow bar would clear the motor home when in the stowed position. A lot cheaper than a new dingy tow bar.

5 Stars Awesome!

Needed to extend cargo carrier about 6" to allow access to the rear of my FJ Cruiser. This item fit the bill perfectly. I originally reviewed the wrong item (1.25 to 2" extension) as it should have been the 2" to 2" x 8". This item is a perfect fit for my needs, was priced in line with what I was willing to pay, was received when committed, and so for I would have no issues with doing repeat business with Discount Ramps. Their price was more than competitive and free shipping on the item was a definite plus. Thanks to all!

5 Stars Right extender for the job
