    Leaving Hitch Rack on Pickup

    For you pickup guys that opt to use a hitch rack, do you find it inconvenient to leave it plugged into the receiver full time? I'm looking at tray style racks, so If I needed to drop the tailgate, the rack would be folded down.

    Thanks, Photos of your hitch racks on trucks would be cool too!

    i leave my t2 on for long periods sometimes, though it has never bothered me having it there. i actually made an adapter to run a single tray rack of one of my T2 3-4 bike extensions that sits right in front of the bumper and requires no folding down. I leave this one on all the time now as I am usually going alone.

    I take my T2 off if I am going to have a significant stretch where I'm not riding. That way it minimizes the chances I'll ever get pulled over for obscuring my license plate, which has never happened to me. It is bulky/heavy, but it comes off and on fast and I keep it close to my vehicle, so it's not much hassle.
