Today we are going to show you how the Swagman Pickup Rack 2 Bike Carrier, part number s64702 looks and fits on a 2012 GMC Canyon. Okay we will start by installing the bar itself, and the installation is very easy. You just want to make sure you have the middle section opened up. We will go over to the passengers side here and ratchet it in. You want to set the rack up as close to the front of the bed as possible. Go ahead and release the passenger arm like I said, take it all the way over until it grabs the top of the bed, and then go to the middle and snap it right it.
You can see it grabs the bed and makes a nice secure mount. The bar itself could be mounted anywhere from the front to the rear of the bed, but obviously the closest to the front is going to give you the most room available so that you could get you bike completely in your bed. I am going to grab my bike next, and I already removed the front wheel from the bike, go ahead and place the front into the skewer on the bike rack, tighten it down, and then lock it in. You can see with the rack setup all the way to the front of the bed we can still get our tailgate closed with the bike in place. And that will conclude the review of the Swagman Pickup Rack on our 2012 GMC Canyon..
