  • Bi-fuel aux trunk

    Additional cargo space when needed. I did this to carry more cargo (not fuel) due to limited trunk space. I purchased a Cavalier model specific class I 1 1/4" receiver hitch with a 200 lb. tounge weight rating from etrailer.com. The 20 x 36 cargo carrier (also from etrailer.com) that fits the 1 1/4" hitch can carry 150 lbs. The container is a Rubbermaid "Action Packer" 35 gallon heavy duty storage box, I think it's about 6 cubic feet. The container and cargo carrier weigh 40 lbs. The the cargo carrier has mounting holes to relocate the license plate if nessesary. Not a lot more room but it beats a car top carrier or pulling a trailer.

    As long as threre's not a CNG cylinder in there you should be good to go.

      I though that was for the goodies to eat at tail gate parties or "Thunder on the lot"

      If there is CNG inside, there could be a safety issue. I don't believe the angle iron meets NHTSA's 5 mph bumper requirements.

        Neither does a hitch ball when left in the receiver.
