Thule T2 on Nissan Xterra - Anyone?

Probably a long shot, but does anyone out there use (or know someone that uses) a Thule T2 hitch rack on a current-generation Nissan Xterra?

If so, can the hatch be opened with the rack folded down, but bikes loaded? (Pics are a bonus!)

Thanks.

The T2 lets you adjust the racks in and out, so if the stock setup doesn't fit, you should be able to make it work by making the bikes a bit closer together, which is fine since the rack is made with room for much wider MTB handles. If you can't, you can always go for a hitch extender of some kind.

Not an XTerra, but it works great on my 99 4Runner.
