So far the hitch has worked out great. Installation was a snap, it took me around an hour to get it in an installed. Biggest problem for me was the lack of a floor jack to help me lift it into place. My only concern is that the hitch itself sits under the bumper by about 6", which to me seems a bit far back. Because I had a spare 2" receiver sitting around, I ended up buying a 1-1/4" to 2" receiver adapter at my local walmart, this brought the hitch out the edge of the bumper. Which brings the ball out plenty far and, to me, seems to put the ball at a more reasonable distance from the bumper, then the longest 1-1/4" receiver i could find would have. Very happy with the product. The included flywire was a god send, never seen one of those before but worked slick. Instructions were clear as to order of operations. Word to the wise do a dry fit before you install any of the bolts, just to make sure you get the bolts put in the correct holes as it would be a huge pain to correct any mistakes after the fact.
