Nice set up.
I'm looking into doing this myself, or a roof rack system.
If this is OEM hitch, how much?
Worry about using a non OEM bolt-on hitch, may effect the warranty??

This is OEM hitch, I paid like $400 and install with my brother, it comes with instructions and all hardware, also $100 for OEM harness. DON'T MESS WITH AFTERMARKET HITCHES. OEM is like welded to the car basically, it has like 12 bolts comparing to 4 on UHAUL HITCH .If you have garage or car ramps and have some tools you can do it. It took me 2 hours, and 1 hour for harness, donít mess with cutting wires, itís not worth it.

Re: Hitch BIKE Rack by THULE . PICTURES

Great pix... I'm going with this as well based on the post.

Question though (the sales assoc couldn't help me, and I'm awaiting a call back from EMS)... I'm buying the rack, and the STL2... do I buy the lock cyclinders seperately? If so, do I buy 2 for the rack that matches the STL2, or do I need to buy 3 matching ones? Thule's website isn't that helpful, and the EMS assoc didn't know.

Thanks,
Stephen

Re: Hitch BIKE Rack by THULE . PICTURES

Finally heard back... apparently, when ordering for EMS, they don't have a way of matching new cores to the STL2 til you get it home and submit another order. I just ended up buying a 4-pack instead. Oh well...

Re: Hitch BIKE Rack by THULE . PICTURES

BTW, guys... just as a data-point... the pictures in the original pots has the front-wheel caddies installed backwards. You need to turn them around to help facilitate for the correct support of the arm. This results in the caddy closest to the car interferring with the rear bumper... take your dremmel, and trim it down an inch, and you'll be good to go. It'll be obvious once you install it.
