Re: Curt Hitch - Infiniti 2004 FX35
I installed the Curt hitch on our '04 FX35 and was very impressed with the installation and the finished product. I've installed receiver hitches before and I'd say this was about middle of the pack as far as installation difficulty, time, etc., and better than average on finished appearance. The only caveat to this, however, is that you may need an extension of some kind for towing, and almost certainly for things like hitch mount bike racks.
It's worth noting my installation may have gone faster and easier than some others because I removed the muffler before doing it, even though the instructions said you only needed to drop it. I had a rusted out flange ahead of the muffler and was going to have a Magnaflow installed anyway, so I took the muffler out, installed the hitch, then took it to a local muffler shop the next day so they could deal with installing the Magnaflow around the hitch - though it was probably pretty easy because the Magnaflow is much, MUCH smaller than the OEM muffler.
I bought my Curt hitch from JC Whitney and, even with shipping to Canada, it was WAY less than buying one here.
Just my $0.02...
