Hitch bike carrier Moto Built!

Over and over again I would almost dump my bike off the tailgate trying to get it up into my lifted Super Duty.  I saw different designs of hitch carriers, but after looking at their price, I decided to make my own.  And one that is lowered since my bumper sits so high.  This is what I came up with.....
