    Very solid and well built. Helps from swaying and makes it harder to steal.

    The extender allowed me to use the rack with my Ram truck. Now I can lower the tailgate when the rack is upright. Great product!

      Small piece of equipment that makes a big difference and does not create other issues.Thanks for the review.

    Solid addition to the rack but only had some ugly silver splatter painted one. Looking for alternative swing mount to buy or build.

      Hi Bryan,
      I sent you an email as well, Silver vein is our third most popular color and. Totally understand if you don’t like the color though, we have some extenders in black and will gladly do an exchange. Please reach out to us and we will make sure you are satisfied with your purchase.

    Super happy with our alta rack and the service we’ve received from Ali. Highly recommend this rack for anyone looking for the sturdiest, easiest-to-use taxi on the market!

    The extender for our Alta Six is the complete solution. Full rear door access for our 2019 Sprinter van. The build is durable, matching the sexy look of the entire Alta Six!

    Super fast shipping and item is very solidly made. Best hitch rack extender/riser I’ve ever used!

    Used this on a sprinter van so that I can have full access to the back when the rack is dropped down. Worked like a charm!
