Today on our 2014 Dodge Durango, we’ll be doing a test fit of the sport rack Vista folding cargo carrier. That’s part number SR9851. It’s for 2 inch hitches only. It’s dimensions are 20 by 60 and it has a nice weight capacity of 500 pounds. Let’s go and begin the test fit by inserting the shank into the receiver. That will line up those pin holes. That looks pretty good.
We’ll take our included anti-rattle bolt and thread that through here on the driver’s side. The nice thing about this anti-rattle bolt is it’s going to help reduce the play and the rattle within our hitch and our cargo carrier. Without that being tightened up, you can see it’s got a lot of play. Let’s go ahead and tighten that down. Just about got it there. As you can see, with that tightened, most of the play is gone.
Let’s take a few measurements. We’ll start with our nearest point. Looks like it’s going to be from here to our bumper. That’s going to be about 5 inches. Overall, to our Durango, we’ve added about 16 inches.
For our ground clearance back here, about 12 inches. Now, we can go ahead and lower it down. What you want to do is you want to come over here to this clip right here, pull that out, pull the pin, and lower it down to platform like that. Then what we want to do is replace that pin and clip just to lock it in place. Re-insert the clip and then we’ll just take a few more measurements. For our nearest point here, about 10 inches from here to our bumper.
Then overall to the Durango, we’ve added about 39 inches. For our ground clearance back here, 17 inches and our loading height will roughly be about 26 inches. Let’s go ahead and open up the rear hatch, check our brake over point. Looks pretty close there. About 29 inches before our rear hatch breaks over our carrier so just want to be aware of that when you’re stacking any materials about that height. One last thing I’d like to point out is there are exhaust exits right here on our passenger side straight out. We’ve got about 24 inches between that and the carrier. You just want to make a note of that if you’re carrying any heat sensitive materials. That’s going to complete our test fit of the sport rack Vista folding cargo carrier. Part number SR9851 on our 2014 Dodge Durango. .
