    Picked up the check today, going to pull the hitch off tomorrow. It's bittersweet... I'm going to miss that car but profit and less insurance and plate fees for me is pretty nice, too.

    That's generous of you.

    FYI, it's probably easier to just remove the rear bumper cover & bumper bar to do a hitch installation or removal. Bumper removal is easy - takes 10 minutes or so. There's access to the inside of the boxed frame rail once you the crash bar is off. I did that because one bit of hitch hardware was stuck inside.

    These cars are like skittles. You'll have another one soon enough.

    Well, it's the dealer's car now... I don't think they would like be pulling the bumper cover off of it but they said I can take the hitch off so I'll try to save the hardware as well. Otherwise, a new hardware kit is like $30 at Camping World.
