Re: Opinion of the Tow Hitch

Okay just removed my tow hitch today and it definitely wasnt 200lbs lol more like 38lbs but i'm not sure if its OEM. Removal wasnt bad at all, a total of 6 bolts (3 on each side) after dropping the muffler down and it was off. All in all, it took just over an hr.

Anyone interested in a tow hitch?

Yeah 200 is way off, sorry. I found my notes - the Class 3 Curt I was looking at is 44 lbs.

Re: Opinion of the Tow Hitch

I installed the Curt hitch a few months ago, I have some pics and issues I ran into doing it. I dunno if there is a writeup on the install, if not I can post that.

Most tricky part was getting the inner bolts into the bumper. The Styrofoam knobs in the bumper get in the way.

I did the install without taking the bumper all the way off, Taking the bumper off might make the install easier, I wasn't comfortable with it going back on easily.

Installed: Led lamps in parking lights, curt tow hitch, halo ring fog lamps, K&N air filter.
ToDo: Fix DRL mod, Ipod/stream, Tow lighting harness...
