    2 inch receiver hitch extension for Swagman XC 2??

    I recently purchased a Swagman XC 2 hitch mount bike rack.
    It uses a 2 inch receiver.

    Due to big off-road tires on my Jeep the rack doesn't clear the spare. I've called Swagman but they don't make an extension longer than the one I currently have.

    Does anyone know where I can get a 2" receiver extension that is about 22 inches long and is just the plain piece of square steel the whole length?

    It cannot have a flange or collar on the end or change in diameter since the rack part at the end is also 2 inches.

    I've looked all over online and cannot find anything.
    Any help would be appreciated!
    Thanks!

    Long Hitch Extension

    I ran across one that is 18" in my search for an adaptor some time back

    If it has to be 22", try looking up a machine shop in your area. They should be able to make you one easily if they have the material (they appear to be two pieces of square tube welded with one inserted in the other with a couple of holes drilled in it). Paint it up (or powdercoat if you have a source) and you should be good to go.

    I would worry about the rating of the rack by positioning it out so far. I would keep it to 2 bikes if you do that.
