I thought long and hard about whether I should go with the Torklift or the Hidden Hitch/DrawTite. I decided on the Hidden Hitch. Strange, since I live in Washington State near Kent where Torklift could have done my install. But, I did not like the idea of cutting away on the bumper fascia cover, in case some day I wanted to remove the hitch and sell the car. My intention is to do the bumper removal method of installation. I don't care that the horizontal square tubing framing shows under the car with Hidden Hitch and Draw Tite. I have owned other tow vehicles. I also own a Chevrolet 2500 diesel pickup. That is what a trailer hitch looks like. That extra metal under the car gives another mounting point for a future 7 pole wiring set-up. Hiding just a little more is of no interest to me. Ground clearance between Torklift and Hidden Hitch seem very similar - not the same, but not significantly different to justify cutting into virgin plastic in case I decide to remove the hitch in the future.
