Review Product
Great easy to install hitch that arrived in a timely manner
I put this hitch my 98 mercury mountaineer, so that I could pull small trailers as well as attach a hitch-mounted bike rack. It has only been a couple months, but the hitch has worked flawlessly. It took only about 20-25 minutes to install with help of my father-in-law with a basic ratchet set and bolted directly on to the frame of my SUV with very little problems. At less than $150 for the hitch (shipping included) and the ease of installment, I don't think I could have got a better hitch.
