    New question here. Help with Thule T2 on Jeep Liberty

    I've been rockin' the T2 for about 4 months and really love it, however, they don't make a hitch extension anymore, so I've had to take my spare tire/reciever off the jeep to run the rack.

    Since Thule isn't planning on making this part, is there a good, cheap, non-wobbly extension out there? All of the ones I've seen just rely on hitch pins to secure them, making the rack that much more wobbly at the end.

    Thanks

    I have a Jeep Liberty with a hitch rack but it's not a T2, it's the cheap performance version, so I'm not sure how much this will help. My rack has a threaded pin which stabilizes it pretty well but my extension uses a regular pin which I expected to increase the wobble considerably. To my surprise, it actually shaked alot less than having the rack directly attached. With that said, before actually trying it I was looking at this, to stabilize the rack:

    I've been running the same rack on my Liberty with a hitch extension I found that uses the large bolt to hold it to the hitch, and the large bolt to hold the rack to the extension. I have to get a longer one though, since the extension part isn't long enough to use the vertical anti-wobble feature on the rack. At least it clears my spare though.

    I'll keep poking around and send you the link if I find one.

    I can't seem to find an extension with that bolt, like the rack has. Got any pics?
