I installed my rack in front of the spare tire because there is no other place to put the spare. The rack holds 4 bikes, I have used it two times but no more there is too much movement and i do not have a need for it, both kids are ready to leave the nest.

What made me sick was spending 400 bucks to make an all aluminum covered generator rack for the back of the camper and never making it out of the driveway.

Lou, I have a rack similar to yours on the front of our Siverado. I did notice after one of our trips that I had to put a little anti-freeze in the resevior, I never knew if it was from reduced air flow caused by the bike or not. Never saw it running hotter and never happened again. Oh well.

Never an issue for me. Temps normal across the board.
Might have been a "flyer" and will never happen again.

If you want I have more pictures of when the holder was being built.
