Has anyone got one for a 4x4. I have a land rover defender and am looking for a bike rack for 2 bikes to hang off the spare wheel on the back... I also would like it to fold flat against the spare wheel when not in use... I dont want to keep taking it on and off every 5 seconds... Was looking at the Mont Blanc Ranger...

All suggestions welcome...

    Unless you have an extra wheel rack, you know the swing away ones, don't try it. The door mounting for the wheel is barely up to the main job , having been designed for tiny tyres, say a 6.00 x 16 not whopping great modern ones. Add 30 kilos or so and the door starts collapsing eventually. They are only a tin frame work.
    Having said all that I just use one designed for hatchbacks and adjust it to fit. Goes on my 110 and the Suzi Jimny . i make sure that the top suspension straps hook to the roof though not the door.
