Wilco Products is excited to introduce the new Utility / Gas Can Rack and Cargo Rack systems for the popular Hitchgate Tire Carrier line.

The Utility /Gas Can Rack may be equipped to carry up to 10 gallons of either gas or water with either Jerry cans or the 10×10 race cans, both easily mount to the Hitchgate with no modifications. In addition to added fuel and water many vehicles are still at capacity for storage on adventure trips therefore we have designed a Cargo Rack System that adds a 35″ wide x 16″ x 4″ deep x 50lb payload capacity platform outside the vehicle perfect for coolers, ammo boxes, and many other items necessary for a safe and complete outdoor trip. Both accessories are powder coated black and include all hardware required. Call for details. (Gas cans / Gerry cans not included)

The Adventure Hitchgate is one of three Hitch Mounted Tire Carriers. This new carrier is like our very popular Universal Hitchgate and even utilizes most of the same components, such as, the Truck Mount Assembly; that slides into your vehicles 2” receiver. Where the Adventure differs is how and where we mount the spare tire. The tire rests in basket like frame structure that, regardless of wheel offset or tire size (up to 37.5×12.5 Tire), keeps the spare very close to the rear of the vehicle. With this change we now have a tire strap and net exclusive to the Tiregate to restrain the spare. The tire strap is easy to use and allows for secure but rapid tire removal and has a safety cable along with our quick link union. You can add a lock to the safety cable for an added anti-theft device.

Like all Tiregate products, the Adventure Hitchgate is powder coated and comes with all hardware required for safe and secure mounting of your tire.
