Default my tips on installing hitch for the B9

well i worked for uhaul so mine is a uhaul brand, my brother who works at a suby dealer said the OEM one, you have to trim the bumper. my guess is the only difference is the height that it drops down for the receiver.

my instructions looked like the printer ran out of ink, so i didnt get the best views on everything.

tip 1:
realize this is harder than a normal hitch to put on. there are tight areas so have someone with small hands handy.

tip 2:
make sure you drill the outer acess holes... stupid me drilled the inside ones first...

tip 3:
you might want to take off the bumper for drill out the 1 1/2" acess hole, i couldnt get my drill in there enough to ream it out to the right size with it on.

these are in no way a *problem* just some time savers.

other than that, its a simple as putting one on your rex.

took about 1 hour to install.

wiring for this should be simple. you would just need part number 13486 from uhaul. this is a 3 wire system car, so you need the converter box. wireing should take you 15-30 min.
