Installing tow hitch

Just got done installing the tow hitch. Took about 40 minutes. Relatively easy. Biggest pain was removing plastic. I forgot to take a pic of the old bumper (installed)before removing it but the aluminum bumper on the ground is the one from the factory. Keep it around if you ever want to take the hitch off. It can only pull 2000 lbs but I have a trailer for Home Depot runs.

Great I am doing this on Friday or maybe this morning after work 12/22/2017..

I may be wrong, But I purchased the same Draw-Tite Hitch and according to the instructions, you are meant to "Sandwich" the hitch between the frame and the bumper beam(Aluminum color thing on the ground on your pics). That piece is supposed to be reinstalled using provided bolts that are a little longer. the old bolts are to be put away.

Maybe I read the instructions incorrectly so here is a copy.

Yes youíre absolutely right. I sandwiched the bumper in. I meant to say (bumper bolts) to save them. Sorry for the confusion

Oh when to put the bumper on with the hitch even if you have someone helping def use the jack under the receiver. It will save lots of aggravation!

Correct.. or what I did was to loosely attached the hitch(alone) on 1 upper corner, while starting both hitch and bumper on opposite lower corner.
After that is all easy
