A very nice and well built rack useful for vehicles with a rear lift gate. Swings nicely out of the way with two easy steps. Despite arriving damaged and having to pound the mount plate back true, it has served me well. I highly recommend it

When you order make sure to look for Hydraulic-Assist Access Dura Rack. The one without hydraulic-assist is cheaper by about $40. Softride shipped me the one w/o hydraulic-assist but AA helped get the right product quickly. For installation you will need a deep-socket (13mm or 0.5") and a ratchet with an extension. It is a great rack overall - solid build quality, ease of use, offers easy access to back of SUVs, great price. AA provided great customer service.

Very nice bike rack; high quality. Love the tilt back feature while bikes are on to access our hatch on our cross over vehicle. Only reason for 4 stars, is that the rubber straps are a little tough/not as stretch as other bike racks I've had, the 1 1/4" adaptor holes were slightly off so I had to re-drill myself, and the locking cable could be a few inches longer.
