Questions from Ford Explorer owners about this product


  • Will the Prorack 2 Bike Carrier, # PR8062403 Fit on a 2002 Ford Explorer XLT
  • You will need to take one measurement to determine if this rack will work for you. You will need to determine the clearance for your Explorer. You need to find the amount of clearance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of your bumper. You would need a straight edge, like a yardstick or a dowel rod, and a measuring tape. Hold the straight edge vertically against the back of the bumper, making sure it extends below the receiver. Measure the distance from the center of the hitch pin

Questions from Ford Explorer owners about this product


  • Does the Thule Vertex Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack Require Assembly
  • The Thule Vertex # TH9029 comes nearly fully assembled. All you will need to do is put the anti-sway cages on the cradles and the rubber straps. If you are using the rack in a 2 inch hitch you would also put the sleeve on the shank. It will probably take you 10 minutes at most from opening the box to putting it in the trailer hitch. The 2006 Ford Explorer could have either a 2 inch or 1-1/4 inch receiver. You can measure the receiver opening ahead of time if you want. This rack will fit eithe
