    Need help IDing this rack

    This Mystery Rack was given to me when I bought Steve Wolf's (RIP) 2012 Special ed Stumpjumper. Any clues on who makes it and what I will need to put it on my SUV? I have no hitch of any kind now, and am a beginner to the whole rack scene.

    And is it crap? The arms are kinda wobbly. I tried tightening them down, but they are not moving.

    Thanks!

    Looks like it's a 1UP. Can anyone answer my other questions?

    Here's the link. I wish I could see the pictures, but the menu covers them. How lame is that?

    Definitely a 1up USA.
    Going by their website, a ' Quik Rack Add-On Adapter (Silver)' is available from them for $89.
    You would also need a Trailer Hitch for your vehicle to use this rack.

    Are you kidding me, This IS a QUALITY PIECE and an AWESOME rack !
    Arms wobbly? In what way, maybe worn, but doubt it.
    Not moving? Did you lift up on the black knob attached to the red lever to disengage the locking mechanism from the teeth to move the arms, or Maybe you tightened too much?
    Should be nylon shims / washers between hardware and snug to allow uprights to move up & down with some drag, but not tight.

    I'm pretty sure you wouldn't have any problem getting rid of it !
    don't tell me, "Show Me " !

    Thanks for the answers. What I meant to say was that the Allen bolts that hold the wobbly arms are not moving, they must have Loc-Tite on them or something.

    Glad to hear it's an awesome rack, I needed to know that before I spend the $$ to have my car set up with a hitch.

    Here's what their site looks like for me. The menu hides the pictures so I can't see what stuff looks like! I emailed them about it.

    Thank you MTBR for the review of this rack system with the comprehensive pictures (since I couldn't see the pics off the 1Up site). It looks like I have the part that bolts to the rack that comes off the hitch. An extra tray, so to speak.

    Waiting for 1Up to call me back to see if there's a way I can use this instead of buying a whole new tray. If not, I'll probably be selling it, if anyone's interested.

    Website works fine for me. I have a 1up USA rack with an add on rack. You have an add on rack and need this part to make it slide into a receiver hitch. It's called a quick rack add on adapter. http://www.1upusa.com/product-addonadaptersilver.html

    The only downside is that you will not have the ability to fold or tilt. Not the end of the world if you're only using it as a single...

    Thanks, guys. jp00865 was correct (and now Coolhand) about the adapter. I was able to look at pics from an MTBR review and determine this is what I needed. Had trouble with the site again when it came time to pay, but it looks like it's cool now and the part is ordered. I was getting this, even thought I triple-checked to make sure I had given all my info:

    A Problem Has Occurred

    Please See Below For Details:

    Your order is not large enough to process. It needs to be at least $0.01

    Error Code : Not Available


    Wonder how many sales they've lost because of the wonky site? Luckily, they respond to emails fairly quickly.

    Sorry, NS-NV, no sale.

    Why don't you just call them and talk to them?

    It's the add-on extension of the best rack in the world. I'll buy it from you if you don't want it.
