Can you explain how you made the extension? And what brand rack it is? I'm pretty sure I'm just going to copy yours. The only thing I can think of that would make it better would be a swing away hitch.

That rack is one of these on Amazon.
The extension is made with one male end and one female end to fit into what's existing total length added is 40", I figured that off the tallest frame of anyone we boat with and the shortest hitch in the fleet. If I had a do over if make it shorter and hang off a crossbar that's isn't one of the ends. I had channel iron added horizontally to keep the frame from twisting into the vehicle and to strap to. I coated the extension in bed liner from a rattle can in hopes of the rubber component would reduce scratching on frames where they rub against the rack.
I've added some pics, sorry for the fuzz, my camera lens was cracked by some clutz.
