Thanks for Duken4evr for providing great details about install.
But again, it seems it is very trivial install, which should not take more than 30 min to install just Hitch.
Anyways, I ordered hitch from etrailer, got it yesterday, and install yesterday evening. I am not sure why we need to drop the muffler at all. I did it without dropping muffler like psycosmyth did.
It was little tight space there to while installing bolts, but not bad at all. Based on psycosmyth comments, I thought Hitch is going to heavy and I need help, but to my surprise it was light ( probably 25lb without drawbar), I did not need any help at all. As psycosmyth said simply remove last heat shield bolt, bent it little bit and get the bolts. Insert the muffler side first , then bolt it on driver side, then complete muffler side. If want some space you can remove the bumper bottom half. IMHO It is not worth trying to remove those rubber things muffler is hanging.
