    On a personal vehicle, a Curt trailer hitch was attempted to be installed.
    The incorrect version arrived, the listing was also incorrect.
    In the shop, we can adapt the correct mountings to fit it to the frame.
    It was too much work to finish it with a replacement hitch and decided on a modification.
    Read and purchase the correct hitch assembly to the fit the model year.

    The fitting was accomplished with heavy metal, grooved and MIG welded (multiple passes) on both sides.
    If the installer does not know how to lay down a "penetration pass" then get the correct hitch.
    The installation also included the correct wiring adapter for North American trailers and lighting.
    Read all the included documents as an aid to also match the wiring harness to other models.
