Yakima SwingDaddy Reviews
Coachrated this item 3 out of 5 on 6/30/2013:
The Yakima website's fit guide says it will fit, but it won't! Test mounted the SwingDaddy today on my 2010 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with 'Stock' spare tire. It will not fit. The tongue pin hole will not line up with the hitch pin hole. With it close, access to the wing bolt to unscrew the mast is blocked by the spare tire. The guys at the Toronto location were extremely helpful as we tried several different hitch mounted racks on my JKUS. Didn't want to go with an extension so ended up having to get the Sparetime rack.

I've had the rack for a week and have yet to use it. It was sent back because the key did not work in the integrated bike lock. The other problem which wasn't made clear on the summary of the rack is that there is another accessory necessary if you are using a woman's frame bike. The bars needed to balance the bike on the rack were then needed to be ordered separately. Rack Attack was quick to respond and sent out a new rack due to the lock issue and had arranged for the first rack to be picked up and they were also quick on getting the accessory bars ordered. I'd give their service a high rating, but I think their website should be modified to let someone know of any extra equipment that is necessary when ordering a rack.

One of the best swing away racks out there. Bend in foot really helps with ground clearance issues that some other racks have. Nice attractive finish, looks strong and burly. Easy to adjust and swing out of the way. Locking cable slides into back of unit, no way for it to pop out. Big straps fit large frames. Still wish I didn't have to use a tube top to put on some bikes otherwise a great rack.
