Comparing the Swagman Semi 2.0 and 4.0 Bike Racks for a 2012 Ram 1500 and Carbon Frame Bike  


Hello, I drive a 2012 dodge ram 1500 pickup. I want to purchase a bike rack for my carbon fiber bike. I have a 2inch receiver. Would you recommend the swagman 2.0 or the 4.0. wasnt sure what the difference was aside from the fact that the 4.0 can be upgraded to a 4 bike rack. I will only be hauling one bike normally.

The Swagman Semi 2.0 # S64686 will fit both a 1-1/4 inch and 2 inch hitch. The 4.0 # S64698 only fits 2 inch hitches and can have a 2-bike add-on installed to make it a 4-bike rack.

Since you just want to carry one bike most of the time and have a 2 inch hitch on your 2012 Dodge Ram I recommend the 4.0 # S64698. Since it just has a 2 inch shank and does not require the use of an adapter in order to fit a 2 inch hitch (like the 2.0 does) it will be a much better fit.
