This is very high quality product. For installation, you will need to two people to perform work.

Missing Holes

The passenger side was off about a 1/2 inch. The drivers side missed about a quarter inch. Honed each side in about 10 minutes. Not bad! Saved about 75.00 ove U-Haul

What a monumental disaster to install!!!!! The receivers fits very tightly against the frame of my explorer. I needed a jack and two jack stands just to get the receiver in place...Then low and behold only three of the four holes actually aligned with the ones in the frame. Since I am only using the receiver to haul a bicycle carrier I am not currently not to concerned. But eventually will drill out the frame to place the fourth bolt on. So much for a drill less installation. Other than the major installation headache I love the receiver.

Arrived without any issues. Installation wasn't as smooth as could be. I could only install three of the four bolts as the holes didn't line up. An alternative was to use a smaller bolt for the fourth hole. Not an exact fit. I'm only using it for a bike rack so I'm not worried about it.

Easy to install, after removing spare tire First!

Looks good and went on easy after taking the spare off first. Spare fits great after installation, without problems.

Hitch an overall good value

The hitch came with 4 days of ordering. This was surprisingly quicker than expected. It was advertised to not require any drilling. However, I had to enlarge a hole on my car frame as the holes did not line up with those of the hitch on the passenger side. I assume this was a Curt error and not a Ford error. Packaging for shipment could be greatly improved. One of the flanges had pushed through the box. I found installation was not possible without removing and repositioning the spare tire. It would have been helpful to suggest this in the instructions. I've used it once for a bike rack. It appears to work fine. Overall a good value.

Hitch is high quality and straightforward to install. Right bracket took some bending to line up with mounting holes.
