Re-route exhaust, sorted. I can comfortably get 8 in the landy.i have done that a few times but i blew out a tyre on the hot exhaust once :/
Yeah that's just bizarre, even with much lower/smaller utes thats never happened in several years of shuttling. You probably pissed off the gods of riding.We shuttle with 5 guys and 5bikes in dual cabs all the time.
This has never happened to us or even come close to happening.

To rememdy sacrifice a virgin mountain bike, but don't cheap out. Kmart bikes will only anger them further.
I assume you know the ritual?
I think i have it, Any chance you could upload a photo or two?Screw two three sided aluminum guides(one each side) just before tail gate inside ute tub. Slip a cut to size piece of ply into them that is a good 7" higher than tail gate. Cut 5 big Vs out of top of ply, line with thick rubber(bike down tubes sit here), screw thick piece of rubber or underlay to ply that will hang over tail gate.
The best set up ever for shuttles. If your ute tub has the ridges in the floor you can drive like a loon and still no bike sex without ropes.
You can screw some wood at bottom of Vs to make forks stick out more or depending on the height of ply, and the wheels will skip tail gate I think, but better having it low for ease of getting them on and off, and rubber protects tailgate fine.
Hope that made sense. So damage to ute is 4 holes drilled in tub. Channels can stay in when board is not slid in.
I don't think I have any sorry(sold ute ages ago).I think i have it, Any chance you could upload a photo or two?
