The pamphlet that comes with the hitch says that it'll take 35 minutes to install. It turns out that wasn't far off. I figure it actuallly took me about 45-50 minutes after the car was on the ramps and the proper tools were located. I only needed help getting the hitch bolted up by hand. The rest I did myself. I didn't remove the spare tire or drop the exhaust as suggested and I don't think that fact slowed me down at all. As a matter of fact, the loop of steel on the hitch over the exhaust pipe allowed me to hang the hitch and made it easier to get the nuts for the mount started. Also, the holes that have to be drilled for nuts and bolts at the rear of the hitch are best done when the drill will be at a approximately 45 degree angle through the rear hitch holes. The space is very tight and once the four main nuts and bolts are tightened completely the holes will be lined up just about perfect. One more thing, the Curt T-Connectors trailer wiring harness was very easy to install, the instructions were concise and very helpful.
