How To Determine If the Kuat Transfer 1 Bike Platform Rack Will Clear the Tailgate While Folded Down

Question:

2004 GMC Sierra 1500 SLE. Hello. I understand that I will not be able to fully open my the tailgate while the bike is on the Kuat Transfer single bike rack. Once the bike is removed and the rack tilted downward, will the tailgate fully open?

Helpful Expert Reply:

The tallest part of the Kuat Transfer 1 Bike Platform Rack part # TS01B while the wheel hook is folded down and the tray is tilted will be 10-1/2" from the top of the inside edge of your receiver tube opening (see photo on Transfer 2). Therefore, you will need to have 10-1/2" from the top of the inside edge of your receiver tube opening to the bottom of your tailagte while folded down in order to clear the Kuat Transfer 1.
