I just ordered the Stealth 2" hitch from Torklift and the wiring from e-trailer. Now I can use my hitch rack again and pull a utility trailer if/when needed.

Awesome! They are one good looking hitch. I put my Stealth on a few weeks ago. This walkthrough from nigelvh is what I followed. It does a good job of explaing everything.

I unbolted the muffler and then just let if hang by the outside hanger, being a brand new car it was easier to do that and have it out of the way.

Also, I broke one of the plastic tabs on the bumper, it was a little chilly out and even though I had the heat on in the garage the bumper wasn't as flexible as it probably should have been. I'd try to work in a warm place and let your car warm up if that's an option for you.

Thanks for the input. That was a great write-up. The wiring came yesterday and the hitch arrived today. I will make sure that I have a full free day so I can take my time with the installation. I hate rushing something and taking shortcuts.
