    Default Hitch Extension

    Anyone know where I can buy something similar to this off the shelf?

    Seems no one stocks/makes anything like this, and the only person who knew someone who would make something wanted to charge me a bogus amount for it.

    Lusted for a Landy but the Pajero was sexier and bigger in the right departments, just like my Missus.

    It just needs to be longer than I currently have and I could flip it to get some ground clearance. I just don't see this kind of stuff off the shelf anywhere.

    Any hitch extension is illegal (unless tested and approved as a unit with the tow bar you intend using it) and can lead to insurance claims being rejected (influence on vehicle stability and weight distribution).

    Thanks Mike. It's not for towing though. My bike rack doesn't quite clear the spare wheel, so I need an extension to do that.

    Frontrunner also have them. Not extensions, but replacement bar with ball, cost is around R1000 if I remember right.
