What do you plan on loading back there? With the short wheelbase and soft springs on the Xterra putting weight behind the rear bumper really screws with the handling. I tried a hitch motorcycle hauler once on a dirt bike. I made one trip and got rid of it and went back to pulling a trailer. Leverage is a nasty thing. Every pound on the back of one of those hitch carriers is a pound and a half on the rear axle and a half pound off the front. The short wheelbase is what makes it so bad.
I think those are the only pics I have right now or at least worth looking at. My next thing to do is to add Pauly's custom built rack. Look up Xterra Zombie lights. I am building the same rack with a 40"led light bar in front, 20" led in the back and 2 floods on each side.Most times will be a 120qt icee freeze with ice. And maybe a few gear. Ill probably have someone custom it higher because of the terrain here. We have no freeways here so im good on the squillery part. More pics appreciated, gives me more ideas to add to this thing as im a shoreline fisherman also.
