It would be a good idea, except that my spare tire will be mounted right above it. The one on the flatty we put in pretty tight, and now I cannot use the receiver for things like bike racks and stuff because they hit the jerry can on the back of the jeep (about the same thickness as my spare)
I am not changing out the axle because all my rigs have different bolt patterns anyway. I wish I could ditch the spare.
The H3 will have Yakima trays on it, but down the road if I am towing with something else I may need the hitch mounted rack.
