Trade bike racks?

I have an older Yakima hitch mounted rack for a 2" receiver, hold 2 bikes. I have a 1.25" receiver. Currently running it with an adaptor, but I'm not liking the extra leverage its applying.

Looking for an even trade for a 1.25" rack, if anyone is in a similar spot...

BTW I stole this pic from craigslist, its not my actual rack but it is the same model (minus the lock in the front).

are you sure you can't swap the receiver part of the rack? Which model is it?

I swapped the receiver part on my Yakima 5-bike rack from 2" to 1.25".. The online retailer said it would void warranty since the 5-bike rack is rated with only a 2" receiver..
understandable...

Don't care since I only use for 2-bikes..

Not sure of the model, I bought it used and I don't think there is a sticker on it. Where did you find the receiver piece? I was looking at it yesterday and it is definitely removable.

Is this the part you bought? I'll have to dig around and find the exact model. It is similar to the Big Horn but I'm pretty sure its discontinued, since I don't see it on the site.

yep! that's it.. I can't for the life of me remember the retailer I bought it from, but I did find in Amazon
