Ok... so I've been busy and lazy.. here are a few pics of my install. I didn't remove the heat shield so I'll be checking the bolts here and there just to be sure. I'll let everyone know if it really does impact keeping the bolts tight. Pics coming shortly.

FocusOnBike - the Thule does tilt out. I have a Yakima holdup which is rated for ClassII hitches.. didn't know it when I bought it, but it too tilts out with bikes on. Thule I'm referring to is T2... not sure about 900xt.

Question: I don't see I'll ever have more than 80lbs of bikes on the Yakima, debating sending back for the Thule. Does anyone have experience with the Yakima on a Class I hitch?
