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

*PLEASE NOTE: 2023 Jeep Wranglers do not offer enough clearance to sit under the tire. You need 4″ between the upper inside wall of the hitch and bottom of the spare*

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.

*If you drive a 2023 Toyota Sequoia, a 2023 Lexus LX600, or a 2022 or later Toyota Tundra: please say so in the notes section of your order – the lock WILL NOT fit on your wide hitch but we have another solution*

(*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.)


PLEASE NOTE:  Due to high demand, orders will ship approximately  7-10 days from order placement

  1. Brad G.

    This is a great carrier! It will carry a large load and is stable going down the road. It also looks really cool!

  2. Alan C.

    Lighter than I expected and the bolt takes out any wobble. Very pleased with this purchase.

  3. Daniel H. (verified owner)

    It works well as intended. Outperforms any other hitch mounted cargo carrier available. No fasteners. All welded. Stout.

  4. Charles D. (verified owner)

    Just got it and have yet to use it but can’t wait! It feels and looks extremely well made and should be just what I need to pack extra gear to the ORV beach trails on our Jeep!

  5. John K. (verified owner)

    Looks sturdy – can’t wait to put it to use!

  6. Joshua A. (verified owner)

    Haven’t even used our Swayback yet and it’s getting compliments from lots of friends and family I’ve shared the photos of. Super burly build. American-made in TX with recycled aluminum. What else could I ask for? Thanks for expanding our storage capacity while getting “out there in the wild”. Cheers!

  7. Nicole A.

    Love the swayback, I do lost dog recovery and it’s the only hitch carrier I have found large enough to carry the traps. Very excited to be able to transport traps with the Bronco now. Excellent quality!!!!

  8. Ben D.

    Today I loaded 597 pounds of flooring onto the mule (without realizing the weight) and it did the job. No problems. No evidence of damage. Just happen to calculate it when I got to the site.

  9. Drew Panter (verified owner)

    I measured and bought one of these for my Bronco Raptor. It clears under the spare tire and fits just fine even with a 37” spare back there. Awesome quality and will definitely come in handy.

  10. Russ B.

    Helps with our lack of storage space on the camper. Dealer highly recommended it and after a lot of research, I agreed. Can’t wait to try it out.
