Well, I now have a hitch. Had a buddy coming tomorrow to help but wife was gone so I figured what the heck.
First off I have to tip my hat to NewSRT-8. His directions saved a lot of time, cause I would have been scratching my head in a few spots.
I just had to pull one side of the Fascia off and just left the other side loose, but still connected to the hidden "mystery fastener" that is hidden behind the fender flare and blocked by the steel inner fender well. These are some really funky looking fasteners that dont even give an obvious apperance how they work.....
The Fascia was really flexible and I just pulled the loose end out and sat it on a milk crate. Since the Fascia sagged down some You can slide the factory bumper out and slide the new hitch into the frame rails without stressing the Fascia.
I didnt have to unhook the rear sensors since I just removed the passsenger side.
NewSRT-8 was spot on. Its pretty nerve racking pulling it off and dealing with the main "Mystery clip" and getting it disconnected.
Before you add the hitch go get some new plastic pop rivets for the plastic trim that goes around the fender well. I didnt know know that I would need some and even if you dont break them getting them off they wont hold the fiber splash gaurd tight again. However, the hitch kit comes with 4 new pop rivets which I used to secure the strips until I can pick up some new ones tomorrow.. .Oh, and my old aluminum pop riveter didnt have a fitting big enough for the plastic rivets, so I had to hold the rivet base down with a small wrench and pull rivet out with channel locks.
So, get the proper sized rivet tool and 10 or 12 plastic rivets before you start. If you dont the lower part of the Fascia will stay really loose.
I had the job complete in 2 hours and then monkeyed around with the plastic rivets and fiber wheel wells for another 30 minutes.
I will sleep better now that my hitch is on
Its exactly the way it comes form the factory. The wiring kit comes with the liitle light connector box that snaps in the steel receiver itself and looks very clean. It has both 7 and 4 pin hookups.
Also the SRT hitch cover looks really slick. It adds some curves to the azz end and really breaks up the old flat look.
Thanks again for the help NEWSRT-8 !
