Exiting level ORII

Is there anyway to set the WK2 with ORII to automatically go to the exit height when the Jeep is put in park? Parents bought a 2013 and they are a bit older the the lower height would help them.

Re: Thule (or other manufacturer) hitch rack questions

If it is anything like my thule rack, it takes a minute to take out/put in. Just keep a wrench in the back of your jeep. Make sure you get the locking pin.

Re: thule rack system installation. help?

I usually just step on the rear tire to deal with stuff up there. You can also get some rock rails or tube steps to help with things on the roof.
