Need cargo space and ground clearance? The Ridgeline features an 8″ rise to improve your vehicles departure angle. Perfect for UTV’s and Trail Running Jeeps where departure angle is a necessity. But also a great fit for sedans or SUV’s where the hitch is really low to the ground.

The Ridgeline has the same rail height as our Original model, and features the same burly TIG welded quality as our other models. It is 12″ narrower however, than our Original and SwayBack, and has a 350lb capacity.  This 100% aluminum, wobble-free Ridgeline will haul your gear into the most remote arduous terrain you can find. Or up your driveway!

PAKMULE installs into a 2″ square receiver opening

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

If you are buying for a Jeep, please call to confirm fit.






Tested on all newer model Polaris Ranger, Honda Pioneer, Kawasaki Mule and the CanAm for fit.

SUV lift gates still clear this basket for un-obstructed access to your cargo

We’ve installed this unit on a number of sedans too, including the popular Subaru Outback.

Jeep swing gates WILL NOT open with this unit installed.  We recommend accessing your gear from the cabin area. Fit with the spare tire can be tricky. Please call to confirm fit.

We ship by freight carrier, and it is not quick like UPS Ground Parcel.  We do not guarantee timing of shipping, and are not responsible for freight not arriving on time.  Because of the high cost of freight shipping, there is a 20% restocking fee on all returns or exchanges.

Because PAKMULE is HUGE and fully assembled, it is classified as an oversized item. UPS freight is not as fast as ground, and there are some limitations to where they will deliver. If you live in a rural area and have any questions, please contact PAKMULE first. Due to the nature of freight shipping, we cannot guarantee delivery timing. Due to the high costs associated with freight shipping, there is a 20% restocking fee on all returns and exchanges.

    Thanks for helping select the best PAKMULE for my Subaru Forester. It was perfect for our 5 day trip to Dixie National Forest. My family of soon to be 4 had all the room we needed as it basically doubles the cargo space from the Fozzie. It was also awesome that you don’t even know it’s there because it doesn’t block your rear or side view mirrors and you can’t hear it since it isn’t blocking airflow like a roof box. We had additional storage space for the our expanding family. Finally, I have a sleeping platform in the back for camping and the space between the PAKMULE and my rear bumper allows for totally unhindered access.

    We bought our Pakmule about a year ago for a few road trips we had planned and we are so glad we did. The additional space it added to our SUV made the trips that much more enjoyable. We love the quality and weight of this product. It is very well made and has become a fixture on our trips both short and long. We also particularly love it at the ranch on hunting trips!

    My family purchased the Pakmule Ridgeline about 1 year ago. The quality and craftsmanship is exceptional. The Pakmule has enabled us to take the more comfortable and roomy SUV to the beach and leave the truck at home. When installed, the Pakmule is solid as a rock and doesn’t have a sloppy fit that you would expect from a cheaper Chinese made product. It’s nice to see a family owned company building solid American made products that are built to last. Way to go!
