I installed the brackets in about 4 hours, taking my time to do it correctly. There were a few tricky spots to get the bolts in, but it was very do-able. Instructions were good and the brackets fit perfectly and lined up with all holes in the vehicle (2011 Element). I tested towing it behind a pickup and all worked well.
After I was done mounting it, I found out that I needed a 6" hi-low drop to line the element up with my motorhome. That has been ordered. I'm eager to get that equipment and start towing.
