yes, removal of the spare tire is necessary also removing the rubber hanger from the hanger pin is also necessary, but easy, just put a little liquid dish detergent on the end of the protruding protuberence and push the rubber hanger over itOriginally posted by Coach7@Dec 16 2005, 12:37 PM
I ordered a Hidden Hitch earlier this week and it should be delivered on Monday. How easy is this to install? I can have it put on for $30.00. From other post it looks like lowering the spare tire is all that needs to be done. The online diagrams call for lowering the exhaust as well, does this need to be done? Thanks. By the way, I got a great price at etrailer, cheaper than anyone in town could get it.
