Hi
I'm considering fitting a hitch on my FX35 also. did you pull the trigger on it? I'm a little concerned about drilling, did you have to do any?

There is NO drilling withthe OEM hitch. You do have to cut the bumper though.

Yes, it can be done in a garage. Plan for 3-5 hours!

I just installed the Hidden Hitch on an 07 FX35 with the OEM wiring harness and it took about 6-7 hours but I was taking my time and the GF was really good about me basically removing all of the rear interior to install the factory wiring harness. I would say I could do one in 4-5 hours now that I know what I am up against. I should have thought to take pictures but there are some on the site and they look the same. Much cleaner installation than the Kurt/U-Haul hitches and the trailer lights work flawlessly. Overall for $315 I would say it was definitely worth it. The extra $$$ for the OEM hitch was not worth it in my opinion as I can barely tell the difference. The dealer over in Shreveport was out of his mind for wanting $1200 for the factory gear installed.

Hi, Darren
I just bought a 19' boat with trailer (total about 3200 lbs) and now looking for a suitable hitch for my 2010 FX35 AWD. My local dealership quoted me $1400 to install the hitch (class 3) and the wiring. I was told that I cannot tap the wiring from the tail light but have to wire them all the way to the dash board. Is that true ? By the way, my boat trailer is using surge brake and I need a 5 pole connector. Can you enlighten me with how the harness wirings are done ? What is the Hidden Hitch part number for my FX ? Would appreciate your help and thanks in advance,
Do any pals here have answer and advice for me, please.

Can someone please let me know where can I get the "Plug and Play" harness for 2010 FX35. Does part # 999T8-EP000 belongs to "Plug & Play" harness ?
