Review of the Yakima DoubleDown Ace Hitch Bike Rack on a 2013 Ford F-150

Today on our 2013 Ford F150, well be test fitting the Yakima DoubleDown Ace 4 Bike Carrier, part number Y02451. To being our test fit, well slide the shank of the carrier into the opening of the hitch, align up our pin holes, insert the pin with the red knob into the pin hole and then turn the black knob located at the base of the carrier to engage our anti-rattle device. Now lets go over some clearance measurements to see how the bike carrier and this vehicle fit together. There are about 17 and a half inches of ground clearance. The closest part of the vehicle to the closest part of the carrier is about five and a half inches. Weve added about 12 and a half inches to the overall length of the vehicle. With this bike carrier, you will not be able to have access to your trunk bed as the tailgate hits the mast of the carrier. To load the bike, well pull the red latch located at the top of the mast, swing the cradle arms out and undo the cradle straps.

Well set the bike onto the frame cradles and secure it with the cradle straps. That completes todays test fit for the Yakima DoubleDown Ace 4 Bike Carrier, part number Y02451 on our 2013 Ford F150. .

The Double Down Ace 4 is no longer available. There are a number of similar racks that I've linked to. Locks are available separately for these racks and you can find the coordinated locks on the right hand side of each individual bike rack page.
