I have attached a pic of the stock Yakima plate with an adapter plate screwed to it on my st to show how it works
Great point Barry - I also noticed that aftermarket carriers have different stud placement too after seeing Josh's ST wheel carrier at Rausch. That is why jpayne's plate design is impressive.

But I heard those SW carriers are worth more than the ST ones,

Also keep in mind that you don't really want to add weight to the SW carrier. The carrier on the stock doors (worst on a green 97) is pure crap. All the weight of the tire is on the door. At least with a soft top the weight is distributed across the carrier.

My 110 door flexed and the framing cracked inside and this was just from a stock tire/wheel combo. If you add weight it will be worse. I had the door welded, added a mantec, and the door cracked again.

I have a call into Thule that I'm waiting to hear back on, regarding the specifications of the Thule Spare Me receiver size, etc., but as far as technical information for now, this was the most useful I found. It looks like for a bike carrier application we'd want maybe a 5-6 inch shaft for the mount. I'm not sure of the width yet.

The nice thing about the Yakima rack is it comes with three shafts that attach to the mountain plate. Depending on tire size you can change shaft. I can provide a plate and shaft for research.

Man that sounded gay

Alright guys let's keep this thread clean. You guys keep talking about your shafts and I'm going to start a new for sale thread to distance myself. Ha ha

Thanks for your willingness to help. I went to REI just now and the guy there was nice enough to open up both the Yakima and Thule racks so I could have a look. I think I have what I need to work on an adapter from my mount to each rack. They should just replace the factory mount plate and function the same with their proprietary locking mechanism.

So the benefit of buying into this system is that you could have your bikes on one day and then you can pull a pin and put your jack mount on the next day without messing with the tire. Kinda cool.

Thanks again for looking into it guys.

Yeah but I think the female end on the rack side will stay in place and I can recreate the male on the plate side with the hole on the end that will eliminate their factory setup with the bolted shaft. Does that make sense?

Thule just called and said they had no idea of the specifications on their own product, Jeff, so I'm glad REI let you have a look.

That's pretty funny Josh. Great customer service.

Hey Barry, did you end up using the longest shaft extension for your rig? I'm looking at what I have and it appears that mine will be 6.5" at minimum. Just wondering if that's too long. It sounds like it might be about right according to Josh's j**p thread above.

What about making it work for the bike racks?

I think I have it worked out for both Thule and Yakima. Haven't figured out cost yet. It might be a bit longer than the medium one you chose on your Yakima, hopefully that's ok because it can't be any shorter.

Did Barry get a longer one or your stock length?

He got the standard length. I might need to make a version for steel wheels and a version for alloys because of the difference in thickness of the two wheels. This could start to get a bit tricky because of so many combinations of wheel thickness and backspacing, not to mention tire thickness. The bike racks rely on support by being up against the tire, so the length of the mount is more critical than the hi lift. We are in the middle of discussions about how to make it best for that application.

It looks like your tire carrier is torquing your rear capping Jeff.

I guess it's time to bump this up so you know there are options in case you want to hang your Hi Lift off your back tire.

I'll be buying one of these soon. I would buy one of these from you way before dealing with the other dude, plus your product looks far superior and more versatile for other vehicles and applications.
