Had one on my XTerra. It was a great clean fit. Wasn't sure about ordering one online and how it might turn out.... never know if the pictures have been photoshopped. But once this was on the MDX, it looked great! Very minimal showing, firmly secured to the frame. Excellent suggestion from AutoAnything on my first purchase. Definitely will shop here again!

2003 C5

Hi :) I am looking for a Class I hitch to haul my track tires and miscellaneous tools for the track for my C5 Corvette. I checked it out on your website, but before ordering, I want to make sure it's able to be removed by cotter pins for quick release...or is this strictly "bolt on"? Thanks, Thelma T.

Hi Thelma, the receiver hitch itself is bolted permanently to the chassis of your vehicle. However, the hitch ball itself is held on by a quick release hitch pin.
