    I am looking to mount the spare tire rack you are using but before I buy I need to be sure it will fit in my enclosed trailer. Can you tell me what the height is to the top of tire? Thanks

    Mine is sitting at just under 72". I do not have the sprint and shock work done yet so it will be a little higher depending on the shock and spring setup you are running.

Because the jack is secured to the spare tire by a mounting bracket, the tire/wheel/jack assembly has to be assembled before hoisting it onto the rack. It's kind of a PITA to get it down and separate the jack from the tire if you just want to lift the machine to check bearing play or fix a flat tire when not out on the trail. I purchased a drop leg screw jack from Amazon and welded a short tube on the side that fits into the OEM jack receivers that are mounted to the frame just inside the door on each side of the machine.

    It's plug-n-play, works like a champ and you don't need extra tools to make it work, unlike the Can Am jack. It's not any heavier that the OEM jack and if I'd known then what I know now, I would have fabricated my own receivers and saved myself a lot of $$$ for other accessories. The jack was $51 on Amazon and another $20 in materials would have covered all the mounting tubes/brackets -vs- $460 for the OEM jack kit.
    if you jack up both sides at same time is the bike balanced evenly so all 4 wheels are off the ground? nice set up

    Haven't tried it cuz the Can Am jack is a PITA to get down and separate from the tire. I doubt it would be balanced but you could probably teeter it by hand and stick a block under the heavier end.
