Re: Best Bike Rack for FJ
Hands down the Thule T2. Not Cheap, But "The Best":
It loads VERY quickly, carries any style of bike, be it 45lb Downhill Racing Mountain Bike, with 3" wide tires, a kids 20" tire bike, or a 14 lb Road Bike.
I've had 4 "Big Bikes" on my FJ, and it's totally stable.
flips up vertical when not in use, and drops down enough to get the back open completely with no bikes on, or enough to pull out a bag or two even with bikes on. It's heavy, so I actually pull mine off if I know I'm not going to be needing it. One 3/4" bolt secures it to the receiver. I have the two bike version, but a friend has the 2 bike add-on, which I can use as needed. Locking can be done by built in locks, or a simple cable threaded through the receiver mount.
Here's a poor picture of mine with my bike after a muddy race. You can see the 2 locks...
