Nothing is ever simple. Our '05 is about to be donated. It needs more work (and resulting cost) than we want to put into it. We'd rather put the money toward a lower-mile machine, either another Gen 4 or maybe a Gen 5. I'll need a hitch, so am considering yanking the Draw-Tite brand hitch off our '05 in case the (as-yet-unbought newer Gen 4) van I find does not have one and I can bolt this one on and save a few bucks but I'm hitting a snag: I can't figure out how they worked in the hitch mounting brackets past the rear leaf springs and rear spring mounts. It looks like unbolting the six bolts (three per side; two on the rear hitch bracket and one on the front hitch bracket) will allow the hitch to drop down slightly but not have room to be worked out past the obstacles. Has anyone done this, or bolted one up? Do the rear springs need to be unbolted? Any tips? Also, I have not looked under random vans to see if every van has the frame rails pre-drilled and threaded for a hitch install. Is this part of a towing package and therefore not to be found on every van or do they drill and tap them all? Thanks!
