I have 2 suvs one with a 2 and one with a 1 1/4 hitch, I assume this will work well with both? The tail gate on both lift up Ford Explorer 1996 and 2007, when tilted, can the tailgates be lifted?

The Thule Transporter Combi Hitch Mounted Enclosed Cargo Carrier # TH665C will fit 2 inch hitches. It can fit 1-1/4 hitches but the hitch must be a Class II hitch. Class II hitches can carry more weight than Class I hitches.
According to Thule the carrier tilts down at an approximate 45 degree angle away from the vehicle. The folks at Thule tell me that the only vehicles that could present a clearance problem are those whose tailgates open to the side. If your vehicle has a liftgate that is hinged at the top, you should have no problems clearing the carrier when it is in its tilted position.
I have included a video of the carrier in action.
