Hate pulling my bikes in and out of the back of my 110. I hear rear receivers with bike mounts need an extension to clear the tire and are a booger to clear the door. Don't want a cheap tire mounted rack -- I hardly trust my rusty door just to hold my tire...


So, looking to put the bikes in the front. Anyone hear/see any options out there for this? Anyone see any issue with doing this?


I had a front receiver on my Ford F250 and it worked great --- right up until I installed my intercooler. Now it won't fit. Maybe I could have a welder retrofit that to my LR 110.

That's close, but I don't need the winch. That bumper is a big'un too -- not sure I need something that beefy. Is there a receiver unit that just bolts to the frame rails and sits under the original bumper?

I just have a regular bar type bumper. I did a search on the internet and came-up with snake-eyes. Do you know a company that sells them?

Used to be able to get a receiver that was welded to a plate and drilled to match a winch bolt spacing.
Shouldn't be an issue getting one made up.
