i installed this hitch personally took me about 3-4 hours. I had no lift or anything. You do not need to lift it nor remove the exhaust. It might be hard get the screw finger tight but that all you have to do for part one of the install. The second part is to remove the back bumper there is about 15-20 pin clips and screws you need to remove. Once they are all of the bumper slides right off and you can use a wrench with a torque wrench to tighten it 110ft-lb. Strong hitch came with cover.
