Expert Reply:

If you take a look at the install instructions for the # 65062, Draw-Tite provides a photo showing the actual area that needs to be trimmed. I have provided a link to the installation instructions.

The area to be trimmed is centered on the front bumper, and measures 1-1/2 inches tall by 8 inches wide to accommodate the angle iron that joins the receiver tube to the cross-member of the hitch.

I would recommend placing the hitch under the frame members and lining it up the mounting holes as closely as possible to confirm the trim area before actually making the cuts. You can see the whole procedure by watching the installation video I've linked you to.
