Review of the Yakima StickUp 2 Hitch Bike Rack on a 2012 Toyota 4Runner

Today on our 2012 Toyota 4Runner well be test fitting the Yakima Stickup two bike carrier, part number Y02420. To begin our test fit well slide the shank of the carrier into the opening of the hitch, line up our pin holes, thread our anti-rattle bolt through the pin holes and tighten with a wrench. Now well go ahead and go over a few clearance measurements to see how the bike carrier and this vehicle will fit together. Theres about 17 inches of ground clearance. The closest part of the carrier to the closest part of the vehicle here at the rear bumper is about seven and a half inches. With the platform folded up weve added about 15 inches to the overall length of the vehicle.

Well now go ahead pull the red knob on the left-hand side of the carrier to tilt the platform down. Well then measure from the cargo door to the end of the platform, and well get a measurement of 38 inches. Now with the platform down, this will allow us to have access to our cargo door. To load the bike, well unfold the mast by pulling the red knob at the base of the mast. Well raise the frame hooks to the top of the mast and well undo the cradle strap.

Well set the bike into the wheel cradles, adjust the frame hook tightly against the frame and secure with the strap. That completes todays test fit for the Yakima Stickup two bike carrier, part number Y02420 on our 2012 Toyota 4Runner.
