My only regret with this product is that I didn't put it on years earlier. The installation process was simple. Remove two bolts on left and right rear portion of my Volvo S60T 2005, using a torque wrench. Then I used a small flower pot, which I put upside down, to hold hold the muffler from falling. Next, holding up the Curt Hitch (you'll need a helper), I secured 3 bolts on each side (one loose bolt on each side is enough to make you independent again). Next, tighten each bolt - I didn't own a proper torque wrench so I think I over tightened one bolt but the others seemed good. I used some lithium grease from my grease gun. I purchased the Hitch with the 2" Euro Ball, which was easy to attach with the complementary pin lock. I didn't really trust the manufacture lock, although I'm sure it would work fine. This was an incredible value considering the world of options that are available to you once installed. Our local Home Depot will only allow me to rent a log splitter with a 2" ball tow, which is why I got this. I'm not sure if I'm going to bother getting the electric portion completed, but overall I couldn't be happier with a product that looks bullet proof and was so simple to install that even a novice like myself was able to do with their wife temporarily holding up the hitch. One caveat was that the muffler support had to be cut with a pair of large wire clips, not a big deal, since when you re-bolt the part it's better supported then before. Overall, Strongly Recommend this manufactures product.
