Even with the roomiest of vehicles, packing the car for a long trip can quickly turn into a frustrating game of Tetris. CURT cargo carriers are a simple yet effective solution for maximizing the storage area of your vehicle. The advantage of a hitch-mounted cargo carrier is that it can be mounted on the rear or front end of the vehicle as long as the vehicle is properly equipped with the right receiver hitch. Mounting a cargo carrier in the front opens up the rear receiver hitch for towing a trailer or adding a second carrier or bike rack if needed. The hitch-mounted design also makes installation quick and easy.
CURT basket cargo carriers feature a strong bolt-together design and are made with heavy-duty carbide steel and a tubular construction for increased strength. One of the advantages of the basket style is its 6" high sides. These provide extra security and peace of mind during travel. This particular basket cargo carrier features a 2" x 2" folding shank to fold up and out of the way whenever desired, and it comes with a strong mesh platform to keep items more secure. It can accept up 500 lbs. of cargo and has a durable black powder coat finish to resist rust, scratches and UV damage. Whether you prefer the hitch-mounted carrier or the roof rack option, CURT has cargo management solutions to meet your needs.

won't fit my Jeep
The basket will not fold up as it hits the bottom of the spare tire. Oh, and the tail gate will not swing open as the tire hits the basket. Other than that, it's a great item.
Folding shank cargo tray
Very sturdy cargo tray. Well designed and easy to assemble. Being able to flip up the tray was a major selling point for us. The folding shank makes the tray shake a little more than a solid shank when driving but doesn't affect the solidness. Some tips - use something like "household goop" ( liquid rubber in a tube) to coat all nuts and bolts and any places joints meet for extra protection against corrosion I also sprayed on a protective clear coat to add another layer of corrosion protection to the quality finish from the factory. I did this mostly for trips to marine environments. The only negative,which is to be expected, is the weight. Overall I am extremely satisfied with its quality for the price.
