The SwayBack features a lower rail height to fit Jeeps, Broncos, Land Cruisers, and Vans.

Featuring the same burly T.I.G. welded quality and huge cargo space as the PAKMULE Pro-Original, but with a lower rail height to accommodate 35″ spare tires, swing open rear doors, and the tailgate on Land Cruisers.  Made from 100% aluminum, the PAKMULE SwayBack will never rust, weighs a mere 40lbs, and yet is burly enough to handle 650lbs of cargo!

Our Pro series racks feature a solid aluminum tongue (yes a burly, 2″x2″ solid piece of structural grade aluminum right into the hitch) to handle the toughest loads and the knarliest roads.  All Pro series racks are hand welded, and then heat-treated for extra strength right here in Texas.

Everything you need, and nothing you don’t.  The pipe frame design of our Pro series units are made for big gear and large loads.  They self clean, resist holding dirt or mud, and provide unlimited spots to wrap your MULEstraps around, to ensure your gear doesn’t go anywhere.

Includes our patented anti-wobble connection that bolts your PAKMULE directly to your hitch, keeping everything secure, whether you’re crossing a continent or rambling down some backroad.  Pro Series racks also include our Stainless Steel lock for added hitch security.

All PAKMULE Hitch Racks feature a patented design that make it easy to raise SUV lift gates, and drop truck tailgates while loaded down with gear to make accessing all your gear easy.*  Otherwise, what’s the point?

It’s not just a hitch basket, it’s a PAKMULE.


PAKMULE installs into a 2″ square receiver opening. With reducers, the PAKMULE will fit in a 2.5″ receiver hitch. If you have a 3″ hitch, be sure to purchase a 3″ hitch pin.

(*in many configurations. Coolers sizes tested up to a Yeti 65 along outer rail for most SUV’s and Land Cruiser Tailgates. Yeti 45’s for truck tailgates. Larger sizes may not open.)

    Got the swayback and works great with the tailgate on my lx570! Stout build, lightweight, and quiet. Hell of a product!

    Mounted the “Hitchin’ Post” today!
    The Swayback is a game changer for my 2 door Wrangler.

  5. Adam W.

    Really well made product. Works well with Kuat swingout on my Land Rover Defender 110. I have a completely black vehicle. Would love to be able to order it powder-coated or black Rhinolined…

  6. Taylor R.

    Bought for our ‘14 Land Cruiser 200 & ‘06 Lexus LX 470. The Swayback provides just what we need for traveling, hunting, fishing, and enjoying the great natural gifts that TX has to offer! Cheers.

    Just got the swayback delivered today. I am very impressed with the craftsmanship. Can’t wait to take it camping.

  8. Benjamin R. (verified owner)

    Fit and finish is beautiful. Low profile SwayBack works as intended with LC200. My wife and I are extremely pleased we stumbled upon your product, it checked all the boxes for our particular needs.

  9. Jared M.

    Bought mine from a local dealer and was very impressed with the build quality of the rack, as well as the little swag bag that was included. Sticker and a neoprene koozie! Looking forward to this thing outliving me.
