    is it too large to just go out the open rear window or up on the rack?

    are there any drain holes on the bottom of the door or spots you can hook to, maybe a tie-down from there to the hook on the base of the floor? :notsure:

    Roof or rent/borrow a truck is what I would do.

    Doesn’t your SUV have a strap-handle on the inside of the hatch?

    I'd rent a truck from Home Depot or Lowes, it's like 20 bucks an hour.

    Lower rear seats & let'em hang out lift gate W/Window down. Or tie to roof rack (if you have one) I would not tie down hatch, but that's just me.

    Yep. Middle seats down, Roll the window down, lay a towel or blanket over the sill and stack em 10 wide and two tall across the sill. Maybe put a bungee over them to the tie down loops.

    Everybody knows at least one person with a utility trailer tucked away in their back yard or on the side of their house. Go borrow it and bring them a 36 pack of Keystone Light when you return it.

    I have used a tie down from the hatch interior handle to the d-ring in the floor when bringing a new door home. For larger items I have a 6x12 trailer.
