Wilco Offroad Hitchgate Switch

Wilco Hitchgate Switch is a lightweight, easy-to-install swinging rear tire carrier that easily mounts to all popular Subaru platforms. Throughout the years, Wilco has made amazing products, including this carrier. If you are looking for the perfect combination of quality, price, and performance, then the Hitchgate Switch is your best choice. The Hitchgate switch comes in two different options, a low-profile and an high-clearance design for the hardcore off-roader. 

We now have more options and better fitment. There are options to carry tons of gear and a 37" tire with the Hitchgate Switch. This tire carrier is designed to maintain structure strength when hitting the trails or rough terrain, and is virtually wobble free even with larger off-road tires attached.


  • Integrated Bolt-Action lock-pin to hold gate open when at camp or parked on an incline
  • Secondary Cargo Hitch on the swing arm to carry a bike rack or cargo rack
  • Adjustable Wheel Mounting Plate allowing the tire to be set closer or further from the vehicle depending on wheel offset and gear load out
  • Tow Rated hitch for up to 7,500lbs with a 750lb tongue weight

Identify that you have at least 4 ½” from your hitch pin hole towards the front of your vehicle. Doing so will ensure that the Hitchgate will be able to engage its wedge lock design eliminating any wobble or play in your receiver that you may have. 

Factors that can result in the receiver tubing not fitting can be caused by: 

  • Receiver tubing has a plate on the back end of the receiver that restricts the hitchgate tubing from running back enough for the wedge lock to have room to engage or hitch pin holes to align.
  • Some model vehicles have a muffler in the rear that interferes with how far back the tubing is allowed to run. This will require the muffler or exhaust components to be relocated.
  • You want to make sure the face of your hitch receiver recedes no more than 1” behind your bumper. 

Hitchgate Switch (UHG4100): Most popular product. Great for Midsize vehicles up to a 37”(4Runners, Tacoma's, Colorado's) and Full-Size up to 37”(Silverado's, Dodge Ram, Ford F150, F250, Sequoias, Etc.) *Raised 4.5" (High-Clearance)

Hithgate Switch Low Profile (UHG4100-LP): Best for midsize vehicles where the bumper is molded around the hitch. (ex. Current body style Grand Cherokees). Subaru Outback & Crosstrek. *Sits 4.5" lower than the Switch

**Notice of maintenance required** - Periodic tightening of the pivot bolt with a torque wrench to at least 60-70lbs every few months is needed to prevent movement on the swing arm. Also, over time replacing the Delrin washers and T handle bushings.
