    I think your setup is the taller C4 bed rack. i'm looking at going with the bed bars that are a little shorter, although not sure on how much shorter since C4 doesn't list actual heights.

    Oops, totally didn't see you linked to the bars.

    You can see they mounted a pair under the rack I have in this pic. I need pretty much every inch of my rack to clear my saddle, so there is no friggin way you are gonna fit a bike under those mid-rails.

    I think you're right. perhaps with the dropper post down i'd be okay? i'm trying to keep height to a minimum so I can still run my stand up paddleboards up top so the wife is happy, but high enough for me to bring my MTB so i'm happy.

    I had to move one of the bars on my rack to clear my dropper. It just barely rubbed. Even with that extra inch of bed height you have over me, you're gonna be like 2 or 3 inches short. Unless you went to mid-bars and a hitch tray like @ripRavioli

    welp shit, can't win em all. perhaps i'll go with lower bars to mount the RTT so we can still bring the SUPs and find a nice used hitch rack for the bikes. i'm in portland after all, CL is littered with them.

    If you were to do hitch rack and aYakima Dr. Tray it might work for ya. not so much up and down but side to side and front to back. that Dr. Tray is adjustable so it works really well with different types of bikes but also sometimes can help with loads that are in the bed that you need to work around.

    Damn, some McGyver stuff right there. Only thing I’d be worried about is side-loading. Pretty stiff?

    Having dh bike and hardtail, I’m in need of a trail bike. A buddy is selling a 2010 giant trance xr for $200. Does anybody have any experience with the ride of this bike?

    Do you mean Trance X4? Looks like pretty low end components on a fairly dated frame. What kind of hardtail are you on? might be worth spending that 200 upgrading your current rig. a proper hardtail can shred pretty hard.

    It’s actually 09 which had a x3. My hard tail is 2015 giant. I’ve thought about putting fox 32 forks on it, with me being able to get fox half off.

    For trail shredding, I'd lean more towards a 34. A 36 on a hardtail would be a little excessive.

    Gonna be honest and admit I haven't looked through this whole thread to find an answer but is anyone running a tailgate pad with the OEM tonneau cover? I had a pad on my 07 Silverado and had a Bakflip trifold and i could leave the pad on and still close the tonneau just fine. When I threw my bike in, I just unfolded it twice. Thinking about getting a bomber strap so I don't lose my backup camera. Would I be able to leave the strap on with the tonneau closed? I know its not that much work to take the strap off each time but TBH I'm lazy.

    That's an ARB dual, and based on the twisted bracket, thats a Slee Offroad mount with the 3rd gen adapter that is sold here on TW.
