I increased the rear door opening by installing a set of front door stops/ checks on the rear and it works perfectly. No rubbing or conflicts of any sort.

P/N Left: 72380-TG7-A02 (replaces 72380-TG7-A01)
P/N Right: 72340-TG7-A02 (replaces 72340-TG7-A01

Price ranges from $10-$15 depending on dealer or site.

I needed more space to fit the ramp for my dog when used on the side doors. Got the door checkers listed above on eBay for $12 ea. plus $4 shipping. Arrived in 3 days. . Had to remove door panel and speaker. Took about 15 min each side to install. Increases door opening by about 5 in. Ramp fits much

better. 11 year old dog is happy now :)
BTW- I was concerned about the doors opening too far in parking lots. But there is a slight "stop" at about where they used to open. Just push past that to open all the way.
$30 well spent!

What brand of rear seat cover do you have installed?

BarksBar from Amazon $27. It is a "hammock" style with bladjustabke buckle straps that go around the four headrests. Or you can use it as a seat cover and not a hammock. I, and my dog, are very pleased with it! I have also purchased a similar cover at Costco for my son. Maybe 3$ less.

Any down sides at all (aside from a few $ out of pocket)?

Since the rear door open wider you have to be more careful opening the door in tight spots. However, the new door checkers do have an indent which you have to push through before they open all the way. I am glad I made the mod.

So far, even the cost was worth it as it was minimal compared to other mods and makes such a big difference for access.
