Review of the Surco Hitch Cargo Carrier on a 2008 Dodge Nitro

Today on our 2008 Dodge Nitro well be test fitting the Surco 24 inch by 60 inch cargo carrier, part number 52018. To mount our carrier to the vehicle well insert the shank of the carrier into the receiver tube of the hitch. Well line up our hitch pin hole and secure the carrier with a standard five-eighths inch pin and clip. Now well go over a hand full of clearance measurements. Weve got about 13 inches of ground clearance at the rear of the carrier. Weve got about five inches of clearance between the closest part of the carrier and the closest part of the vehicle.

Overall weve added about 30 inches of length to the rear of our vehicle. Weve got about 11 inches of clearance between our tailpipe and the closest part of our carrier, so heat transfer shouldnt be an issue. The cargo door breaks over our carrier at about the 18 inch mark. Thats it for our test fit of the Surco 24 x 60 cargo carrier, part number 52018 on our 2008 Dodge Nitro.
