Is there an adapter that would allow me to use this on my 2" reciever on truck but also use it on my 1.25" reciever on car?
Unfortunately Thule only offers the T2 in a 1.25 inch and a 2 inch without any adapters.
You can get 2'' adapters from a number of places for the 1.25'' to work on your 2'' but you won't be able to use the 918XTR T2 Add On (four bike carrying capability) with a 1.25'' size. If you are going to do this, make sure you get the 1.25'' because it is safer to go up than go down. For instance, using a 2'' T2 with an adapter to make it work for a 1.25'' is not nearly as safe.
I hope this helps, feel free to email me back or call at 971 279 5182.

Will the 916XTR T2 rack clear the rear gate mounted spare tire and carrier. How far from the hitch base pin hole to the first tray of the rack?
In our experience the T2 will clear the spare tire for carrying bikes. It however cannot fold up against the back of the jeep when not in use without a hitch extension. We carry the extensions, although they are not recommended by Thule.
Give us a call for more info

We have two heavy ebike (Bionx) 1/ Specialized 2/ Giant both adult bikes. Approx. weight is 50 pounds each. Batteries are taken off in travel mode. In respect to this rack is there a problem? Don
The 916XTR T2 is able to support 60 lbs. per bike, or 120 lbs. maximum for both bikes. So it will be fine for your two bikes, as long as they do not have front fenders. If you ever wish to add the 918XTR 2-bike add-on, then the weight limit drops to 160 lbs. overall, or 40 lbs. per bike.
As you are enquiring about the 916XTR, I assume that you have a 2" trailer hitch on your FX 35. If your hitch is a smaller Class 1 or 2, then you would need the 1 1/4" T2 (part number 917XTR) and the weight per bike would be lower - down to 100 lbs. overall maximum capacity.
