Talking Not that difficult to see over the bikes.

Not that hard and I'm short! Like 5'3" short lol. I can see the handle bars from where I sit and know the furthest distance by looking at the last bikes' handle bar. If I can do this I'm sure most of you can too. Just remember to take things slow because of the additional length. When I got home this last trip, I told myself I'm not gonna stop just to unload both bikes, flip the rack up and then back it in and gonna wing it. Took twice as long and I let several cars sit there and wait till I am done backing in lol. Next time I'll have popcorn at the ready

I apologize for the dark shadow, and if anyone wants a better pic I'll post it up. It'll be a while before I mount the Thule up front again (I only mount it when we're on RV trips) and if I do I'll take a better pic.
Does the bike rack interfere with any of the forward sensors on the truck?

Thumbs up XLT with no bells and whistles.

No, because its just an XLT with not much bells and whistles therefore no sensors. On that note, its been decades since I've had cloth seats and after owning this baby for a little over a year, neither the heat or the freeze bugs me unlike leathers I've always had. The cloth is now my fav over leather, to each their own and whatever makes you happy :P

Can you show where you bolted this to the frame? I have the Curt as well, but using the instructions, mine sits about 2 inches lower and sticks out much further. In fact, I had to cut the bottom of the air dam to make it fit. I have a 2016 f150

Funny thing is, he never plowed a damn thing with it because he had an Argo, lol



i was considering adding tow loops to my 2wd, but i like this idea much more. plug in the end of a strap and use a hitch pin. plus, a ball mount plugged into the drivers side would would make neat work of moving a trailer around the yard.
