If you have a bike and your vehicle has a hitch, get the All Jacked Up Switch Hauler and you’ll be ready to securely and easily take your bike anywhere you want. The Switch Hauler works by mounting to your vehicles hitch and lifting your bike up off the ground and into the ideal transportation position using the integrated hydraulic jack. Your bike is securely held, cargo/bed space is left open for your gear, and you don’t have to push your bike up a ramp.
There are other hitch haulers out there that use integrated jacks, but the Switch Hauler is superior for several reasons.
-A mounting screw is used to secure the hauler to your hitch and, unlike a traditional through pin, removes all slop and movement during transport.
-Safety bolts/pins lock the support arms when in the upright position so your bike has zero chance of dropping down as you drive.
-Foot peg restraint bolts hold your bike firmly in place with a specialized hook design and a robust wing nut fastener.
-The bike platform is completely removable from the lift assembly using the connection clip design. This lets you store the Switch Hauler completely flat and attach one of the Switch Hauler’s other platform types. (other platforms sold separately)
With these features getting put into an overall construction that’s super tough, getting the convenience of the All Jacked Up Switch Hauler on your vehicle is a no brainer. And if you want more options, the Switch Hauler is also available with a 2 inch drop and 0 inch drop.

Quality product, stable, and secure. I purchased the 3.25” drop for my standard height Ford F-150. I wanted the 2” Drop model but it was not in stock so went with 3.25” drop model. At 51 y/o I am done pushing my bike to the bed of my truck especially when my knee gives-out sporadically. This product has taken the possibility of knee collapse or another mishap while loading out of the equation. The 3.25” model will drag on certain driveways when loaded on standard lift trucks, but it’s not an issue 99% of the time when you become aware of the load characteristics of your vehicle. The 2” drop should allow you to just role on without having to lift and manhandle on an F150. Very happy with this product.
Great product - works as promised - exceptional support
I purchased the Switch Hauler after looking at a lot of other options and spending time talking to the manufacturer (who was very helpful). I found the quality to be exceptional - everything is over-built and fits together perfectly. I assembled my unit in a few minutes with good instructions. Had to learn a few things to get my bike loaded just right the first time, but after that it very easy (Honda CRF250L). The carrier has worked well on the road as well. Very solid, even over some unexpected bumps in the road. I highly recommend.
After much deliberation and research I settled on this bike hauler to carry my 2013 YZ250F behind my truck. I have a shell on my truck so needed a hitch mounted system for the bike. The fit and quality of this hauler are first rate and I have been extremely impressed with how well the parts fit and work. Assembly was easy and the instructions were comprehensive, almost to the point of being too detailed. The system works very well. I have been using the hauler on weekends for about 3 months and have had no problems at all. The bike is always held firmly and securely and barely moves when I am driving. The jack works very well and it is easy to raise and lower the bike. It is great to be able to drop my tailgate with the bike still mounted to the carrier in the lowered position. I had an issue with the hydraulic jack when I first assembled the unit. Within 48 hours of e-mailing the manufacturer I had a new jack delivered to my door at no extra cost. Then had two follow up e-mails to make sure the new jack worked ok. Customer service has been superb. I am very happy with the hauler and strongly recommend this system.
Depending on hitch hight of my 1 over stock higher Toyota Tacoma 4x4 rear end will this platform go to the ground or very close so I can roll my bike over it then jack it up? Little guy heavy bike! Lol. Ktm 350 EXCF.
In my experience the platform top will drop to about 5 inches lower than the bottom of your hitch receiver if you use the lowest mounting option. I also use a couple 2x12 boards at times under my wheels to help boost my bike, as I have a high hitch as well.
High Michael. Do you have the 3 1/4 inch drop hauler? I also have the same problem with a high hitch on my truck and was going to do the board thing too and back the hauler into and under my bike. My bike's wt is 320 #'s and is too heavy for me to lift it at all onto the platform. Thanks for your help! Lance.
Yes, mine is the 3 1/4" drop hauler. I actually pull the bike up next to the hauler platform, then lay the boards down in front of the bike's wheels and roll the bike onto the boards and over the hauler in one move. Easy to do, and works great. Just position the bike so the rear wheel is headed directly into the middle of the platform side, and front wheel is parallel to the platform with the hub aligned with the platform side opposite the rear wheel. Then just turn the front wheel sharply toward your vehicle and push the bike right over the platform.
