Had to haul some 8ft lumber today, which is too long for our passports. Small boards you can obviously just run through between the seats and close the hatch with ease. Bigger boards you’ll have to leave the hatch open, but you can hold it down with bungee cords. Just remove the small panel on the hatch door panel and you can hook to the aluminum door.

Thanks for posting this. Someone asked about the same thing in another thread and I went and looked and was like, where the hell do you hook something.

And yes, the back is HUGE. one of the top reasons I chose it over the Grand Cherokee. Much better than having a truck!

Lets not get carried away. Before I use my PP I'll use my truck; and if it can't handle it then I'll use my 7x17 foot utility trailer; its rated for 7500 pounds.

I can only afford one vehicle at the moment and the PP can not only haul stuff but is also roomy enough to sleep in on trips to the mountains and such. It handled 800lbs of pavers from Lowe’s like a champ! Champ!

Yes its a nice hauler, provided you're hauling small/clean stuff.
But ... would you carry 800 pounds of grass sod? 20 pieces of 12' 2x4s? A queen/king mattress?

Match the tool for the job and you'll be OK.

Great tip! I've been hauling lumber and oversized items in my 2003 Pilot for 17 years using the inside door handle around loops in the frame. The Passport seemed featureless and no where to tie from or to so this is going to very handy!

I checked mine today and there’s no hole on the “aluminum bracket” to hook the bungee cords. Does the “indentation” behind the bracket to put the hook into, enough to hold the doors say driving 40-45 on somewhat nyc potholes ? Thanks in advance again
