UltraSwing™ FAQ

Q: What is the difference between the 4th/5th Gen UltraSwing the Multi-Fit and the Mega-Fit?

A: Click here to find which UltraSwing is best for your vehicle:

The 4th/5th Gen UltraSwing has an ultra-short receiver tube and one hole position for the closest possible fitment to these 4Runner's super short hitch receiver. The Multi-Fit has a longer receiver tube with two hole positions to accommodate a wider range of vehicles, while still maintaining as close of a proximity to the rear of the vehicle as possible. The other key difference is the latch location being on the front of the Multi-Fit vs. the rear on 4th/5th Gen. Outside of those two changes, the two versions of UltraSwing are identical. 


Q: How much does the UltraSwing weigh?

A: 70 lbs (with wheel plate)


Q: Do I need a license plate relocation kit?

A: On all versions of the UltraSwing license plate relocation tabs are included. Click here to learn about license plate lights.


Q: Do I need a hitch extension to use a bike rack?

A: If you are running a spare tire, yes, you will need a hitch extension.

We recommend the adjustable anti-wobble one we designed called the WobNot, but others will work as well.

The one exception is a Sprinter or Transit van running 31" tires using a Mega-Fit does not need an extension.

A: There are several existing options available for backup camera relocation. Here's a link to our Toyota kit. Call or email us to help you decide what option makes sense for you.

The Rago Fabrication UltraPlate is a great option for mounting additional accessories like a Front Runner Camp Table. Other accessories include the Hi-Vert Hi-Lift mount, MAXTRAX to Hi-Lift mounts, and WobNot hitch extension.


Q: Can I mount two Rotopax to the UltraSwing?

Q: Will the UltraSwing affect my departure angle?
