Only gripe is I live in TX and so is 4WD so I had to pay taxes. It took 5 days to get the part which meant it was drop shipped from out of state warehouse. I could have ordered it out of state but figured I'd get it in 1-2 days by ordering it in TX.
Install was a snap, I used needle nose vice grips to get the nuts started. I would not waste the time of removing the plastic bumper like the other reviewers suggested. The wiring harness already has attachment clips for the predrilled holes in the frame, no need for wire ties. The whole process took me 30-45 minutes.
what is the towing capacity of this hitch?
