      Dare I ask why? It's really more trouble than it is worth. To remove the headlights, you'll have to remove the bumper. Do that wrong and you'll run the risk of cracking the darn thing. Let's say...

      There are very few locations you can put the receiver. It's just so very tight. I ended up putting mine next to the passenger side fog light with a custom fabricated bracket. I think that is...

      That's pretty much what we use it for, long distance trips. It routinely does full to empty tank runs from the SF Bay Area to Southern California non stop. It's our airplane on wheels.
