What our customers are saying:

We got the shipment as promised. Everything was there, no missing pieces. The video on the web site was priceless, it gave me the confidence to rip off some of the trim on my brand new Caravan to get to the necessary places and replace the trim to its original condition! The hitch and wiring were installed in 3 hours only because it was my first hitch and we went reeeaaaallll slow to not make a mistake. The project went with out a hitch!! Fit perfect and exactly as the instructions said. I was amazed at upon completion the hitch was firm and the lights on the trailer worked!! Great!!!

Trailer Hitch Installation - 2009 GMC Acadia

Today on this 2009 GMC Acadia we are going to be installing part number 75528 from Draw-Tite. This also applies to Hidden Hitch part number 87435. The first thing we are going to do is remove the bumper fascia where our hitch is going to be going, as well as removing the four rear exhaust mounts that are holding up our muffler.

Trailer Hitch Installation - 2008 GMC Acadia

Today we are going to be installing hitch part number 75528 on a 2008 GMC Acadia. And this installation will also apply to Hidden Hitch part number 87435. All right, looking underneath the vehicle here, the first thing we want to do is, if your vehicle has this rear fascia cover on it, we want to go ahead and remove that. There are two screws on each side here. Just give those a half-turn, pull that right off there. And you can see, this particular vehicle has a dual exhaust, and most models do. The first thing we want to do is to go ahead and lower the exhaust down to get it out of the way. We need to remove the exhaust from two hangers. There is one on the inboard side, and one here on the outboard side as well. And there are going to be two for each one on the exhaust. So the first thing we want to do is to go ahead and lower those. I would definitely spraying the studs down with some kind of a spray lubricant like a WD-40. It makes the removal of the rubber hanger a lot easier. Before we release the hangers on the other side, I am going to use a basic tow strap here. I am going to support the exhaust where it merges, because when you lower a both sides of the exhaust, the exhaust will want to fall down, and it may damage your exhaust. So putting the support strap in there will keep it from doing so.
