Compatibility of Swagman XC Bike Rack on the Front Mounted Hitch of a Chevy Silverado


I am interested in this bike rack for the front of my silverado truck. Im trying to stay under $125 and would be interested in this, but if not compatible, another type to use on the front. I think the platform is best since the bike wont ride so high up on the rack lessening the chance of blocking forward visibility.

The Swagman XC 2-Bike Rack Platform Style for 1-1/4" and 2" Trailer Hitches # S64650 will work well on the front mounted hitch of your Chevy Silverado. I recommend using the Anti-Rattle Hitch Lock and Cable for Swagman Bike Racks w/ 1-1/4" & Combo Shanks - 7' # S64031 for added security.

The only thing to be aware of other than visibility is to make sure you don't block air flow to your grille. For instance, using a weather cover is not recommended.
