Rebel Off Road is excited to offer our new bike mount for our XPLOR Full and Half height Racks. The mount will attach to your existing Flat Carrier Plates from behind and is fully adjustable to your bikes height and width. This allows for compatibility with most of the roof top tents available. Our mount includes two straps, one for the rear tire, and the other strap can be used to keep the bike secure by strapping it to the XPLOR Rack (this helps with the sway that may come from off roading).
Our mount comes sandblasted, pre-treated with 4 stage iron phosphate wash with deionized water rinse. They receive a Tier 1 OEM Supplier basecoat of zinc rich primer and then are shot with a top coat of black fine texture powder coat finish.
Made In The USA with U.S. steel.
We've also given you two mounting options for the front forks. The first is from Rocky Mounts and is a locking axle mount. The second is a fork locking system from Rocky Mounts. Both can be easily installed to the front mount but you're welcome to use your own brand.

I got a second one of these once I had tried one and liked how it worked. I have the half-height bed rack, so this makes it much easier to carry bikes. It's very strong and definitely keeps the bikes snug and secure. The only drawbacks are that you can't put as much gear on the sides of the rack if you have the bike on, and you need to pay more attention to your clearance, particularly height. But those aren't problems with the rack mount itself, just something you need to be aware of.
I actually just bought my 2nd of these. I got one to try it out, and liked it well enough to get one for the other side. I have the half-height rack, so getting bikes in the back even when the the bed is empty can be a pain. And if I'm taking my 3 boys biking, it seems like it takes longer to load the bikes than anything. This bike mount makes it much easier. It's very solid, and can hold my weight, let alone my bike's. The only negative (not a flaw in the mount, it's just what it is) would be that it blocks a little of your view out your side mirrors. You also need to be very aware of your clearance both up and to the side because your handlebars and seat will be sticking out and up more than you are used to. Not great for tight, overgrown trails, but great for what it does.
