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

*PLEASE NOTE: 2023 Jeep Wranglers may not offer enough clearance to sit under the tire. You need 3.75″ 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.

(*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.)

Be aware of proximity to exhaust. Heat from vehicle exhaust can damage paint and can melt cargo products loaded. This is primarily a concern on rear-facing exhaust.

    just received it and the quality and finish seems great! looking to use in the next couple of weeks.

  2. Robert B. (verified owner)

    Very sturdy platform. Makes you proud to see the things made in the USA still carry the quality.

  3. Mark H. (verified owner)

    Feels great to buy a quality product and to know that it is American-made, supporting American businesses and families. I’ve owned a business for 34 years and get it. Last year I hauled my enclosed trailer for my yearly trek to Idaho for an archery elk hunt, this year I’m ditching the trailer and taking my Pakmule.

    Awesome product. I am able to take all my wife’s stuff on camping and weekend trips now

    I really like my Pakmule Swayback. The welded aluminum is superb and I know it will last my lifetime. I really like the width of the carrier. I don’t believe there are any in the market with these same dimensions. We recently took a beach trip that required some off-road/beach driving. I’m so glad I don’t have to worry about rust, or wobbling/shaking things off the rack.

    Just wanted to say thanks again for getting me the cargo carrier in time for my trip. What an awesome product y’all have!! I’ve had many different cargo carriers over the years, but PAKMULE is the Mecca of them all. The overall size is perfect, the quality is amazing, and the fact that it has zero shake is mind blowing. Also, the brake light is a great addition to it, especially since it has turn signals.

  7. Cole S. (verified owner)

    Can’t wait to try it out! Looks like it will last forever!

    Uniquely durable.
