A: Sher, these vinyl fence posts are meant to be installed with vinyl fencing.
A: Chuck, You would still use a treated 4x4 post inside the vinyl posts to support the gate on the hinge post.
A: Yes. I used it for the exact same thing.. It fit right over the wood post. Upkeep is wiping it down once in a while. Good luck.
A: Cubby, Yes this post will work for sliding over your existing wood post with enough clearance.
A: YAYA, These posts are to be buried into the ground with concrete around the posts. Be sure to leave approximately a 2" gap from the ground to the bottom of the fence panel. Once the panels have been installed to the posts, brace the panel and post to hold the position as the concrete sets.
