How to measure hitch extension ??
On my wifes Compass, we want to use a hitch mounted bike rack but find the receiver is not long enough, I would like to extend the receiver 6" but when checking extensions on line the means of measuring are not specific, one site mentions measuring from pin hole to pin hole, is that how it is done, also not all sites have the same length extensions, some start at 4" some start at 6" sure could use some help here
2008 Compass Sport Jeep Green 2.4 L CVT
2005 Liberty Limited Black 3.7 L
The Necessary Evil
Pin hole to pin hole is correct. Just run a ruler or yard stick into the end of the receiver up to the center of the pin hole and then measure straight down from the bumper and this will be the minimum that you need depending on the bike mount itself.
