*Wearing a camping headlamp makes seeing everything so much easier in the wheel wells and under the bumper.
*Measure to confirm the center line of the bumper with the metal tailgate latch or anything that is not on the bumper (I explain below)
*I hung the lights up and out of my way with a bungee cord from the tailgate lift brackets, rather than risk damaging a bulb or clip to remove each bulb.
*There is one wire harness connector clip (for the backup sensors) on the driver's side, under the light, that can be disconnected, from underneath, before removing the bumper.... Read More
The installation was straight forward thanks to Torkfit video and written instructions. Talking time to study additional videos reinforces understanding of the process. Using a pry tool on bumper facia clips eased their removal. The hitch itself is well designed as it is specific to the car brand and model.
Awesome!. Easy enough to install yourself in under 90 minutes.
The Hitch arrived in a few days, well packaged and appears well made. The installation instructions were clear, though a couple of additional points would help with a smoother installation. First, you will need a deep 14mm socket to remove the bumper nuts. Second, the metal tab referred to in the instructions is one of the "push clip" (plastic rivet) receive tabs on the chassis that would otherwise interfere with the hitch. it just need to be bent out of the way. You also need to be careful when reinstalling the bummer cover so it doesn't get damaged. There many snap points that could pinch or jam, causing some misalignment. I would recommend this hitch and save some money over the factory install.
Clear instructions were easy to follow and the project probably took an hour and a half total for me. Nothing that a modestly mechanical person can't handle on their own.
The hitch looks great on the car. I've only used it to haul a swing away bike rack, but have plans to do some light hauling with it.
