  • How i get my bike on the ute...

    I bought a Patrol ute not long ago and was thinking of way to get my bike on the back of it by myself.
    The tray is a bit too high for ramps, and those one man bike ramp/winch things was a bit too expensive. So this is what I came up with...





    It worked a treat

      DIY hiab, good thinking!

      How stable is it while lifting with those attachement points?

        Yeah the sphincter was working a bit the first time I lifted the bike. But its all sweet. Its bolted down with 8 high tensile M10 bolts.

              Not DIY, they are sold under the name of "Backeze" or something like that.
              For a few extra bucks you can get then with an electric power pack so you dont have to jack/pump () the handle (snigger)
              They are easy to fit with a subframe to a tray back but can be quite difficult with a well body.

              It's better to be thought stupid than open your mouth and remove all doubt

              Pure speed in sixth gear on a 5,000 foot straightaway is one thing, but pure speed in third gear on a gravel-strewn, downhill, ess turn is quite another.

                Hope you reinforced the tray under where the hoist mounts... else it will weaken over time
                Good stuff though!!

                I have put the Brute on the back of my old Hilux with tray (higher than the pootrol) using two ramps and walking up while riding the clutch. Didn't faze me, but everyone's different about how much they risk their baby or have confidence in holding her :-)

                  Dude, I think I saw you today with that bike on the back aswell. On Waneroo rd Crossing Ocean Reef road at about 8:30 maybe. And I thought to myself did he use that HIAB to get that bike on there?

                    Usuallly ill find a wall close to the height of the tray, like a retainer or something then park next to it, so the ramp angle is alot lower.
                    Thats a bloody good setup though mate!

                        you could of course got two ramps and wheeled the bike up one while walking up on the other. But hey. that looks cool

                          i was lookin to get one of these when i used to have my Lux as it was stupidly high and getting bike in the back was a bit of an amazing balance act.

                            The top pic has the bike lifted off the ground, so the tray is sitting lower than it normally sits. It sits at 1100mm normally. I've held some ramps I've seen in shops at 1100 and I didnt like the angle, dirt bike maybe but not with the clearance of the r1.

                            I got it at MALZ for $260, but last week they were on sale for $200 dammit. I was away at work so missed out.

                            Yeah AWSE I was taking the bike to dynotime. Looking forward to picking it up tomorrow.

                            I have a car engine hoist for sale now! (one of the ones with the folding legs) If I need to pull an engine I'll just reverse the ute up.

                              I've used the hydraulic version before, those things are awesome! Perfect for pulling out fence posts without having to drive the front end loader 15km's down the road. Very strong too, I put out the stabilising leg a few times as the suspension was getting a beating on some heavy lifts. They can be slow to use, but perfect for occasional use.
                              Go soothingly on the grease mud, as there lurks the skid demon! Press the brake foot as you roll around the corners, and save the collapse and tie up.
