We'll close that up. Then to put our bike rack back into place, we'll simply lift up until it clicks. As for how our bike rack is secured down here at the back we have a rack string strap, we're just going to pull up on the red button, and then it actually wraps it down using the black portion here.

Toyota 4Runner Bike Rack Questions

  • Sounds like you are looking for a way to carry a couple bikes and some additional cargo in a cargo carrier. We have the perfect solution for that. Check out the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 Platform 2 Bike Rack w/Cargo Carrier # HR1450-85. This is a 2 bike platform rack that has a cargo carrier mounted behind it. Your vehicle will need to have a 2 inch hitch installed on it though. Check out the review video I attached for more info as well.

  • Good news, I do have a great replacement hitch pin for the Hollywood Traveler Rack # HR8000. Hollywood Rack offers an anti-rattle and cable lock combo # HRLHPTC. This will allow you to lock your rack to the vehicle and your bikes to the rack for added security. Plus both locks are keyed alike for easy removal.

  • What you would need is the RV Bumper Bike Rack part # S80605 to attach to your 4 inch bumper. Since the two sections of the rack can be spaced wherever needed on the bumper you would just need to space the rack so that the wheels of your tandem bike line up.

  • The two racks Thule Vertex # TH9031 and Yakima SwingDaddy # Y02464 you referenced are very similar, but they have a few differences. Although they weigh about the same, the Thule Vertex, part # TH9031XT, has a higher weight capacity than the Yakima SwingDaddy, part # Y02464. The Vertex can carry 150 pounds, while the SwingDaddy can handle 140 pounds. Both Thule Vertex and Yakima SwingDaddy will work with 2-inch trailer hitch receivers. The Thule is USA made. The Vertex has...

  • If the mountain bike does not have a horizontal top tube then it would require the use of an adapter bar like part # UB01 to provide a horizontal attachment tube for the Kuat Beta part # B202-2 to attach to. The adapter attaches to the seat post and the steering stem to provide the attachment point. I looked up pictures to see examples of Kona and Giant mountain bikes and some of them had top tubes that wouldn't require an adapter as they were basically horizontal, but several...

  • The Swagman XTC4 4-Bike Carrier for 2-inch hitches, part # S64665, does have tilting upright masts to allow hatch access when not loaded with bikes but the main horizontal structure can drop only to a level position (as with bikes loaded and going down the road). It does not tilt down below the level position. With your four bikes loaded you will not be able to open your rear hatch. A better option for rear hatch access is the Yakima HoldUp 2-bike carrier # Y02443 partnered...

  • To determine if the Pro Series Eclipse 4 Bike Rack # 63124 would clear the rear spare of your 2013 Toyota 4Runner you need to take one simple measurement. You need to measure from the center of the hitch pin hole out to the furthest point out on the spare tire. If that measurement is less than 8 inches the # 63124 would work for you as this rack has a distance of 8 inches from the center of its pin hole to the upright bar of the rack. For a similar bike rack with more clearance...

  • The upright mast of the Detail K2 part # K2BCR490 can tilt forward and back slightly when you remove the lower pin. It would not fold all the way down in either direction though as the pin that stops it from falling all the way back also prevents it from going fully in the opposite direction.

  • We do indeed have trunk-mount style 2-bike racks confirmed as a fit on your 2011 Toyota 4Runner and you can see all of them by clicking on the included link. For a rack that will gently transport your bikes and also be easier to install and remove from the 4Runner I suggest the Thule Raceway PRO 2-Bike Rack # TH9001PRO. This rack offers advanced design and excellent build quality. Among its included features are built-in locks for the rack itself and for your two loaded bikes,...

  • All of the Thule Apex hitch bike racks, parts # TH9025, # TH9026 and # TH9027, feature built-in anti-rattle devices that are integrated into their shanks. The Blue Ox Hitch Receiver Immobilizer II, part # BX88224, that fits 2-inch hitches like the one on your 4Runner, will not work with these bike carriers but it will do a superb job of stabilizing, both vertically and horizontally, the shank of a ball mount like # 2923 or that of a compatible bike rack like # S64152-2.

  • Yes, the Thule Vertex 2 Bike Carrier # TH9028XT that you referenced will work on your 2010 Toyota 4Runner. I wish we had a video that showed this rack being demoed on your vehicle but we have not made one yet. I did attach a video of this rack being demoed on a similar vehicle for you to check out. If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without horizontal top tubes you may also be interested in purchasing a Thule Bike Adapter Bar # TH982XT to provide...

  • The best solution is going to be the T2 Pro part # TH9034. It's a platform bike rack that will only touch your bikes at the tires and when you are ready you can have the extension piece part # TH9036 installed on it and it would be converted to a 4 bike rack. This will basically give you the nicest bike rack setup on the market that I know would be your best option for a 1,000 mile road trip. I attached a couple review videos for both products for you to check out as well.

  • In order to determine if this Kuat NV 2 Bike rack, part # N101, will work on your 2008 Toyota 4Runner, you will need to take one simple measurement on your vehicle. You will need to measure the distance from the center of the hitch pin on your 4Runner out to the furthest point out on your bumper. If that measurement is less than 9-1/2 inches, then the bike rack will fit with the rack in the down position. If the measurement is less than 7 inches, then it will fit with the rack...

  • The Thule Vertex 2 Bike Carrier, # TH9028XT, offers some of the same great features as the #TH934XTR including the anti sway cradles, folding arms, and tilting mast. The Thule Parkway, # TH958, is another good option. A bit more economical than the Vertex but still offers the tilting feature. The Thule Hitching Post Pro, # TH934XTR, is loaded with features and such a great value that it would be my personal choice even if I was only planning to carrying 2 bikes. It is recommended...

  • The Thule Vertex # TH9030XT does not feature an eye ring to run a cable lock like part # TH538XT through. In all but extreme cases, securing all four bikes together and making a wrap or two around the mast of the carrier would offer sufficient deterrence against theft. Keep in mind that the purpose of a lock is to keep honest folks honest. A determined thief will get what they want despite any precautions taken. The idea is to make the crook move on to easier pickings.

  • Yes, as long as your 2007 Toyota 4 Runner has a receiver hitch installed at the rear of the vehicle the Thule Hitching Post Pro 4 Bike Carrier for 1-1/4 inch and 2 inch Hitches - Tilting - Hitch Mount, item # TH934XTR will work on your vehicle. There is 11-7/8 inches of clearance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the upright bar on the carrier so that should be plenty to clear the rear bumper of your vehicle. If you have added a rear mounted spare tire on your vehicle...

  • The distance from the upright mast of the Yakima KinPin Bike Rack part # Y02458 to the hitch pin hole is 8 inches. Since you have a distance of 4-1/2 inches from the pin hole on your 2007 Toyota 4Runner to the outside of your spare tire this rack should work well for you. I attached a review video for this rack for you to check out as well. If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without horizontal top tubes you may also be interested in purchasing...

  • Both the Thule Doubletrack Platform-Style 2 Bike Rack # TH990XT and the Swagman XTC-2 2-Bike Platform Rack # S64670 are great racks that would do an excellent job on your 2007 Toyota 4Runner. The biggest advantage the Doubletrack has is that it can fold up on your hitch when not in use, also this rack includes locks whereas the Swagman requires you to purchase them separately, part # S64029. I attached review videos for both racks for you to check out as well.

  • If you have a 2 inch hitch on your 2006 Toyota 4Runner I would recommend to use a hitch bike rack like the Thule Helium Aero 2 Bike Rack, part # TH9042 you have referenced. It is a lightweight hitch bike racks and has a total weight capacity of 70 lbs. I am including a link to a video review on the bike rack. If you do not have a hitch on your vehicle you can use the Thule Raceway 2 Bike Rack, part # TH9001PRO. This bike rack has a total weight capacity of 70 lbs. This is one...

  • Vehicles with a rear spoiler, such as your 2003 Toyota 4Runner, can pose a challenge to fitting a trunk-mount bike rack. Fortunately the smart folks at Hollywood Racks have designed both 2-bike and 3-bike versions of their Over-the-Top rack that can deal with this vehicle feature. The # HRF2 and # HRF2-3 racks both feature arched-type construction to allow them to extend up and over a rear spoiler without placing weight on it or applying any friction from its mounting straps.
