OK, with the spare tire out, the hole that we are will be drilling in the spare tire well is actually over in this area here. We also are going to be drilling two holes up onto this upper surface here as well. We will put the hitch up into place and get it aligned, and then we will drill our holes out from underneath. Over here on the drivers side, we are going to need to go ahead and remove the exhaust from its rear-most hanger.

So the first thing you want to do is to remove any components that you may have in the spare tire well. And then we will come back down here, and we will put the hitch up over the passengers side and then drill our holes. Over here on the drivers side, before we get going I am going to go ahead and lower the exhaust down to gain more room to drill my holes in the side of the trunk well. You can see we have got one large hanger here. We just need to take this stud off of the rubber portion. To do this, I am going to use a little spray lubricant, like a WD-40. And I am also going to lower the one here at the forward side by doing the same thing.
