Video Transcript for Review of Yakima EXO System Litkit - Y74VR

Hello, everybody. This is [email protected]. Today, we're gonna take a look at this license plate and tail light relocation kit for the Yakima Exo system. Now this kit will keep your vehicles street legal with this license plate and tail light relocation kit. As I mentioned, it works with the Yakima Exo swing base. Basically that Yakima Exo swing base is a pivoting hitch extender that installs into your vehicle's hitch and transform your hitch into a modular system for hauling all your gear.

It'll allow you to install a bike rack, a cargo box, cargo tray and even a ski rack to the rear of your vehicle. This kit here will allow you to install these two LED tail lights to the swing base arms to provide stop, turn and tail light functions and make it street legal. It will also include, let me zoom in here and show you, the license plate bracket and license plate light right here. There's the bracket. Here's the light.

To secure your license plate in place. It is designed to fit USA and Canadian license plates and it even comes with the hardware right here to install the license plate to the bracket. Now, this is a nice simple bolt on installation. To get your arms here will bolt on to the Exo swing base arms using these knobs right here and you just tighten it down to hold them into place. And what's nice is you can loosen these knobs to rotate these lights out of the way to easily add or remove Exo system accessories to the swing arm.

Now it also includes you can see here all the necessary wiring harness to plug your lights into. If you notice on the back of the lights, it has your plugs right here, same way on this one, and you just plug it into the harness and then plug that harness into the four way that's on your Exo swing base. It does also come with a nice set of instructions that'll describe how this all hooks up. But that should do it for the review on the license plate and tail light relocation kit for the Yakima Exo system..

I bought this for a Christmas gift. We have a Yakima swing base and box so this will be a nice addition.

So question is does one even open something shipped like this. My hope is to get a return and the same product ... but in a package. So far did talk to someone at help desk ... but not sure if this will will work.

We use this for extra storage in our class B campervan. I'm able to store all the bulky items that don't fit inside the van like chairs, mats, and our grill. I like that it doesn't block the license plate or taillights and still allows access to the Thule bike rack. The SwingBase allows both doors to open for full access into the rear of the van.



by:

Very easy to install. Total installation time (not counting taking photos and opening boxes) was approximately 15 minutes. The only issue I encountered was the left handle on the lower rack had a broken piece inside the locking pin assembly. Other than that, everything was quick and smooth for a single person job. This will greatly assist my business by allowing more room for passenger comfort on long trips to and from airports with a large party. Looking forward to putting this to use.

  • Will Yakima EXO Swing Away Storage System with Cargo Boxes Allow Truck Tailgate to Lower
    From the center of the hitch receiver opening to the back side of that top box for the Yakima EXO Swing Away Storage System w/ 2 Enclosed Cargo Carriers # Y74ZR measures right about 30" and then that same measurement for the bottom box is about 33-1/2" (see attached). I'm not sure how wide your tailgate is but this should give you a good idea whether or not you'll have clearance. If that top box will be in the way of your tailgate it actually has a swivel feature that will allow you to...

  • Will Taillights of Vehicle Still be Visible with Yakima EXO Swing Away Storage System # Y74ZR
    The taillights of your 2022 Leisure Travel Unity Rear Lounge are going to be considerably wider than the boxes of the Yakima EXO Swing Away Storage System w/ 2 Enclosed Cargo Carriers # Y74ZR that you referenced so the taillights would easily be visible. There is also a lighting kit part # Y74VR as well.

  • Internal Dimensions of Enclosed Cargo Carrier for the Yakima EXO Swing Away Storage System
    The internal dimensions of the enclosed carriers that come with the Yakima EXO Swing Away Storage System w/ 2 Enclosed Cargo Carriers # Y74ZR is 51.7" wide x 14.6" tall x 17.5" deep according to Yakima. Hopefully these dimensions work out for your application! If this does work out for you then I also recommend picking up the License Plate and Tail Light Relocation Kit # Y74VR to make sure your tail lights and license plate are clearly visible while heading down the road.

  • Weight and Light Kit for Yakima EXO Swing Away Storage System w/ 2 Enclosed Cargo Carriers
    The total weight of the Yakima EXO Swing Away Storage System w/ 2 Enclosed Cargo Carriers # Y74ZR is 157 lbs so it would be over the weight capacity of a 150 lb tongue weight hitch. For a taillight kit to use with this you'd want the part # Y74VR which does use a 4-way connector. We do not have a camera kit for this at this time. This is very stable in the hitch that it is installed in and does come with an anti-rattle device which keeps it from moving around.

  • Availability of Swingaway Kit for Yakima EXO and Does Light Kit Fit
    For the Yakima EXO kits they offer a swing base with the part # Y34VR that will allow you to swing the rack away from the rear of the vehicle to access the rear door. Since the light kit part # Y74VR attaches to the rear of the rack it would swing away with rack and would work perfectly fine.

  • Yakima EXO SwingBase 2 Tier Swing Away Dimensions For Clearing Rear Door on Camper Van
    The Yakima EXO SwingBase 2 Tier Swing Away Hitch Extender # Y82VR is 29" from the center of the hitch to the locking handle on the base. The locking locking handle does sit 8" above the top of the receiver which you will want to ensure that your door will also clear if the door does sit inside the 29" measurement of SwingBase. Be sure to get the License Plate and Tail Light Relocation Kit # Y74VR as with your gear loaded it will most likely impair the view of the tail lights on your van.

  • Recommended Hitch Cargo Carrier for 2009 Lexus GX 470 to Allow for Rear Cargo Access
    For your 2009 Lexus GX 470 with the rear door that opens to the right, I recommend using the Yakima EXO Swing Away Enclosed Cargo Carrier - 2" Hitches - 10 cu ft - 100 lbs # Y62VR. This is for use on 2-inch trailer hitch receivers, has a weight capacity of 100 pounds and provides 10 cubic feet of space for all of your cargo. The carrier is able to swing out to the right and away from the rear cargo area of your Lexus. The pod itself on this system weighs only 28 pounds, so it can be easily...

    To determine if you will be able to open your doors fully on your Mercedes Interstate 24 GT Class B RV you will need to measure from the center of the hitch to where the rear storage compartment open to. The Base # Y34VR is going to measure 29" from the center of the receiver to the locking pin on the hinge. It will also sit 8" above the top of the receiver to the top of the pin. The Cargo box on the Yakima EXO Swing Away Enclosed Cargo Carrier # Y62VR that you are looking at will sit further...

  • Will Yakima EXO Swing Away Enclosed Cargo Carrier # Y62VR Block the Rear License Plate
    The Yakima Exo Swing Away Enclosed Cargo Carrier # Y62VR will block the license plate on most vehicles, but not all.

  • Exhaust Clearance Concerns on the Yakima EXO Swing Away Storage System and License Plate Kit
    Yes, the Yakima EXO Swing Away Storage System w/ 2 Enclosed Cargo Carriers item # Y74ZR is compatible with the 2" receiver on your 2018 BMW X1. As far as exhaust heat goes, the shank on the swing away has a 2" rise to lift the carrier up and away from your exhaust. On our test vehicle the closest part of the frame was 6" away from the bumper so you shouldn't have any issues with exhaust heat causing damage. Given the size of this system I strongly recommend using the License Plate and...

  • Do the Lights Have to be Removed to Close the Carrier Arms on the Exo Swing Away Systems?
    The License Plate and Tail Light Relocation Kit item # Y74VR takes away the option to close the carrier arms when they are not in use. If you wanted to close the arms you would need to remove the brackets for the lights. This is done with two easy to use knobs on each side. This kit is compatible with the Yakima EXO Swing Away 2 Bike Rack w/ Enclosed Cargo Carrier item # Y34ZR and any other Exo Swing Away configuration.

  • Is the License Plate Relocation Kit Required to Use the Yakiima EXO Swing Away Carrier?
    The license plate bracket item # Y74VR isn't needed or required to use the Yakima EXO Swing Away Carrier and Cargo Box item # Y94ZR but it is recommended to avoid any potential traffic stops. You're not supposed to block your rear license plate so you may run into an issue depending on what state you're in or traveling through. The Yakima EXO Swing Away item # Y74VR weighs 142 lbs so you are going to want some help installing and removing it from your vehicle. The cargo box is 23" long...

  • Auxiliary Brake Lights and License Plate Lights For Attaching To a Bike Rack or Cargo Carrier
    The License Plate and Tail Light Relocation Kit # Y74VR is a very popular kit for many bike haulers. The kit is specifically designed to mount to the Yakima EXO System # Y82VR but it can also be used in other situations. You can choose to use the included mounting arms in either orientation if they will help you to bolt to your particular rack. They can also be bolted or attached directly to a cross bar on the back of the rack by using the mounting holes for the arms. The harness is plug...

  • Yakima License Plate and Tail Light Relocation Kit Wiring Harness Connection Type
    The wiring for the Yakima License Plate and Tail Light Relocation Kit # Y74VR will have connections to a main harness that plugs into a 4-way flat trailer connector. It then has separate connectors for each of the taillights as well as the license plate light. The length of the wiring is designed specifically to fit the Yakima EXO system but you should still have enough length when mounting to your Kuat bike rack.

    I have a solution for you. Reese does not have a swing/fold up cargo carrier, however we do have the Yakima EXO SwingBase with GearWarrior Cargo Carrier - 2" Hitches - 60" x 23" # Y72VR. This system can be highly modified and has many attachments to fit all your needs. The License Plate and Tail Light Relocation Kit for Yakima EXO System # Y74VR are the lights you asked about.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2021 Nissan Murano for a Bike Rack
    I recommend using the etrailer Trailer Hitch # e98907 for your 2021 Nissan Murano because it has a matte black finish that helps it blend in with the trim on your Murano and helps to hide any scratches that might occur from road debris hitting it. Then for a bike rack I recommend checking out the Yakima EXO Swing Away 2-Bike Rack # Y92VR for a few reasons. The first is that the swing-away feature means you can gain complete access to your rear hatch area without removing your bikes, the...

    While we have not used the Yakima EXO SwingBase # Y34VR on your 2022 Kia Carnival we have used it on a 2020 Honda Odyssey(see video below), so I see no reason you will not be able to use this on your Kia. The base is mounted on the upper portion of the hitch that slides into the receiver tube. And the arms angle up to help reduce the chances of it contacting the ground on steep driveways or curbs. Here is a list of the accessories you can add to the EXO SwingBase. TopShelf for Yakima...

    Thanks for reaching out! I recommend installing the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver # e79KR on your 2019 Lincoln MKC for use with the Yakima EXO Swing Away 2-Bike Rack # Y92VR. It has a matte black finish that not only looks more rugged but actually offers better protection against road debris than the glossy black finish we see on the other hitches for your vehicle. The EXO system is an excellent option because it's not only an excellent bike rack but it also gives you the ability to...

    As long as you have at least 4-1/4" of space from the center of your hitch pin hole to the rearmost part of your 2021 Toyota Highlander the Yakima EXO Swing Away Enclosed Cargo Carrier # Y62VR will fit perfectly!

  • Will Adding Cargo to Rear of 2018 Nissan Rogue Obscure Backup Camera
    Installing pretty much anything in the hitch on your 2018 Nissan Rogue (or any vehicle with a backup camera for that matter) will obscure the camera to a certain extent. Depending on the cargo you may be able to retain more visibility, but it's just not always possible. If you plan on using the Yakima BackSwing # Y02483 then it would be good to use a stationary cargo carrier like the Reese # 63153 so that everything sits a bit more solid in the hitch receiver.
