Bike Rack - 4 bikes

Looking to add a bike rack to our SLX 154bh.

Any recommendations?

I should mention, I don’t have a truck.

I just used this for the first time after purchasing it earlier this spring. I reenforced my rear bumper and added a receiver to mount it. It worked great. I can't recall the name of the kit I used to strengthen the bumper but it supposed to allow 400 pounds now.

The tire holders fold-in if you just want to use it as a tray or they could be removed all together if that was more convenient at times when hauling bikes and/or supplies on it. Click image for larger version

Reinforce the rear bumper either by welding additional reinforcement plates on between the frame and the square bumper or by using one of the commercially available reinforcement kits: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B084ZTS882

Then, bolt a 2-inch heavy duty receiver onto the bumper: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0007M1ZGE

Then the sky's the limit for bike racks. A bike rack can get pretty bouncy back there behind the axle on a spring-only trailer, so bias toward stout carriers that secure the bike by the frame.

Searching the forums for "bike rack" will also give you more info that you'll know what to do with.

I made a removable bumper and bolted on a Swagman 4 bike pedestal style bike rack.

Ideally we won’t have to weld. I think I’ll be doing a combo of the bummer reinforcement + this. Thanks!
