      Does not fit

      Does not fit the 2021 Ram promaster 3500 , the rear door door will not open when the swingbase is in any position. Many places such as Rack Attack don't have fitment guides and the yakima fitment site is apparently misleading also.

      Love the idea, but...

      I don't own this. But I have thought about building a similar custom rack. But why create a new standard for the rails and attachment? Why not just have standard roof rails on it and allow us to install any of the existing ski, bike, etc mounts designed for the roof on the back of the car. I would be much more likely to invest in the mounts if I knew I could mount on the roof, or on a hitch system like this. So close to what I want...

      great feedback from Steven Vetterdiaz -- I am wondering what do you mean to bend the spare holder, the reason is that I am getting my Subaru Wilderness and love the design of the EXO system.

      EXO SwingBase with EXO GearLocker + EXO LitKit, nicest looking hitch mounted cargo box on the market

      In order to install the EXO SwingBase to my 2021 Subaru Outback Onyx (with OEM hitch), i had to bend (with pliers) the spare tire holder about half an inch back. The tailgate opens clearing the installed EXO GearLocker. It came with two matching lock cores. With a control key from Rack N Road i was able to switch out the core on the EXO GearLocker to match the EXO SwingBase making it a single key system (SKS). My Blind spot detection seems to work the same as well as the rear cross traffic alert. Backup camera has a view around the box which is nice too. Tail lights 100% visible but i opted for the additional EXO LitKit anyhow. Didn’t move my license plate as it is still visible as well. I don’t notice any noise when driving on the freeway, i made dividers with dollar store foam boards. Hope this helps as I don’t see many (if any) reviews so far.
