The package for this thing was roughed up, but the hitch was fine - not a scratch. It took 15 minutes to install - far easier than I expected. 4 bolts, an upturned bucket to hold one side while I lifted and screwed in the other side. And the price is really nice, considering the dealer wanted near $600 for providing and installing a similar unit.

It is a very good product. but installation, not so much. The bolt heads and hardware were just a little too large to fit in the factory holes in the frame - too big by less than 1/8 inch. Rather than trying to drill the frame holes a little larger (would have required a very large bit), I just ground down the sides of the bolt heads and hardware to make it fit. Also, they could have included 1" longer rubber muffler hangers (than stock) so the muffler wouldn't rub on the new bolts.
