Had this ideia not to loose hight, sorry the pics aren't very good. Will finish the hitch tomorrow and take better pictures. But is very sturdy. One of the pics I raised the back of the car on the hitch, and it didn't moved at all.

Woah you even made your own ball hitch? Do you plan to tow or bike rack or storage basket? You can plug into the wiring harness with a wiring kit. Good job. Where do you live where they had diesels available?

That's beautiful. Great job. I tried to get various shops here to do something like that, but nobody was willing to do the entire thing---plastic body removal and welding---would have taken two different shops. Therefore, I ended up going with Renegade Ready's retrofit kit. Worked great, and just one shop, a body shop, was able to instal, but it is a lot of money.

The ball I bought, i made only the steel plate suport, I´m planing in making a storage basket, I already made the baggage hack, going to post some pics later on. The eletrical harness I still didn´t make. I live at Brazil, and the 9 gear diesel is awesome!
Thanks for the complemets

that looks great but like they said


safety chains go where?
Thanks eveyone!

The safaty chains. About that. I forgot. LOL. Put its easy, just take it out and weld it. thinking in doing undeneath the car inside the bumper with the eletrical harness. Will see!

Hope u guys copy the ideia. Its very easy. didn´t spend 50 bucks doind that. the most dificult part was taking the bumper. Only broke 1 bracket from the fender.

That would be against the law in the uk only oe spec manufactured towbars after 2002 made cars are legal how do you get on in a crash insurance wise as they are big in claiming in the usa. Nice job
