    Any recommendation?
    I installed the draw tire today and it was a pia. There are no built in nut zurcks. You need to run the 4 bolts and plates with a coiled spring through the frame rail and then bolt the hitch to the bottom. Otherwise, looks great on the Mirage.

    That's how most hitch installs are. On older ford trucks you have to drill out the frame for the hitch. I thought it was pretty easy, the ford truck hitches are much more difficult. Mirage hitch took about 30 minutes, only have to drill out the driver side I think

    I have never had to do this before now, and I didn't have to drill anything. My previous Kia optima, both Hyundai elantras, and Ford zx2 had zurcks already welded in and bolts just tightened in, way easier than this was.

    Anyone else have concerns on how this could affect the warranty in the USA?
