      You should check out the Fort Collins GTG's. There's a thread for it here in the RM forums.

      That's an awesome hitch, I like that it's hidden. It looks like to install it the bumper needs to be removed, an access opening cut into it, and 3 holes drilled into the subframe. Is there anything else for the project?

      That's it. 2 holes into the spare wheel well. 1 hole into the rear bumper rebar. The hitch also clamps around the rebar posts. I have the original receipt and the dimensions for the bumper cutout

      How much work is involved in the install? I'll be interested for sure.

      Remove rear bumper, drill two holes in spare wheel well and one hole in the bumper rebar. Bolt tow hitch into place. Cut opening in bottom panel of bumper cover, reinstall bumper, install rack, add bikes, drive to trails and RIDE
