    They work but be aware of the load. I have one that I used on my F150 and never had a problem. I did take the extra measure and tie the outside ends to the back of my truck. This minimized the wobble but did not eliminate it.

    Is this 1 of those cargo mounts that hook in the 2" reciever?If so ,I added two eye bolts to the back corners,looped a strap over my spare and hooked it.Held a ice chest (36pack), a small gas grill,and a 2'X2'X2' box of cooking junk.I borrowed this 1 and it works great (watch out going through dips)so I'm getting 1.
    Feed it some Green and watch it grow

    They work great but like it was said before, watch the weight. I just went camping and I have one of these and it was indispensable. However, you're wasting money at that price. Walmart has the same one (which is where I bought mine) for $55. The brand is Hitch-Haul.

    I looked at those and spent the money for the off road reciever rack that raises the rack up even with the spare so you don't lose your departure angle. I have carried four 35" M/Ts mounted on steel wheels on mine about 400 lbs and the rack is rated for 500 lbs. I do notice the front end felt a little light. On the trip out here I had it loaded as well, but also had weight on the overhead rack and in the Jeep so it was more balanced. Even the expensive one rattle a little in the reciever when empty, but with weight it seems to be fine.
