Comments about THULE Hitching Post 4-Bike Carrier:
I purchased this carrier for my Jeep Wrangler based on the description on the Sports Authority website, specifically "Tilt-down" design with full vehicle Access" - NO; and "Clears most Spare wheels on the back of 4 x 4s" - NO. After the initial unsuccessful attempt to install, I searched for an extender for the receiver hoping that would give enough clearance for the spare tire. That worked, but it stuck out a lot! Problem #2, yes it tilts down, but the spare tire won't clear the rack so the back door won't open far enough to really access the back. I then tried the rack on a Jeep Liberty, just for kicks. It does fit without the extension, but the tilt function doesn't work for that vehicle either because of the way the rack is designed the stationary part just sticks up too far - it is clearly a design flaw. I really can't imagine any type of 4 x 4 vehicle that this rack would work on. Unfortunately for me, it is now 12 days past the 30 days I had to return this thing to Sports Authority so I'm stuck with something that isn't really functional. Don't waste your time or money.
