Road trip with the Thule Cargo Hitch Box (Transporter Combi)

Very informative thread. Considering picking one of these up for some extra space on long trips. On gas cars I've done roof boxes, but with the widely spaced V2 Supercharger installs and increasing SC prices, I'd rather not cut range by 30%.

So did you cut exactly 6" off of the shank? Angle grinder? And did you just use a standard drill to re-drill the hole for the hitch pin?
Took the easy way out. Had a fabrication shop remove 6” and then drilled & tap, $35. Then went to the hardware store and purchased two shorter bolts to replace the single supplied bolt that doesn’t go fully through

Note that you can purchase the Thule box directly from Mazda far cheaper then any other source
