I took two 1UP USA van trays, a pair of toggle clamps to latch to the stock D-ring tie-downs, and built a wood frame for bike trays. They oriented opposite of their hitch rack. it wedges the front wheel down against the rear of the cab/front of the bed. I'll run a bungee or strap through these rear wheels. Originally tried using some rivet nuts, but the location I drilled near the cab had a bracket nearby that prevented install of rivet nut. The ribs on the bottom of the bed are also narrower than the base of the bike tray so it didn't support it well from side-to-side wobble.
Boy, If ever the saying "a picture can tell a thousand words" this is it :)! Have any?

😂 Was thinking the same thing. I think he’s describing an install in a pickup truck.
