I installed this myself on a 2008 Toyota Tacoma. There was one part that would have been easier if I had help, but I managed to do it with only hand tools. Fit and finish were excellent. No chips or scratches and it bolted right up. I towed a motorcycle trailer through the mountains with no problems.
GREAT!!!!! Once I drilled out the holes that were wrong
My Hitch had two problems: My Curt Hitch came with the holes drilled incorrectly. I was able to install the hitch after I spent an hour grinding two of the holes larger with my dremel. Through the hole in the hitch, I could only see half of the hole in the frame of my car, that is how wrong it was. Next, there is so much black lacquer on both the hitch and the receiver that it doesn't fit!!!!! I got on the ground and tried to kick it in to scrape off most of the paint, and it still didn't fit. I went out to Auto Zone and bought a stainless steel receiver that went right in without a problem. Obviously the guy with the spray gun wasn't paying attention and put on too many coats or something. It works as advertised now, and looks discrete underneath the bumper, but damned it if didn't take some sweat to get it there. All I can say about Curt is that they have an extremely low quality control program at their manufacturing facility. Good Design, Bad Execution.
