22 VW Taos SE FWD, Cornflower Blue
Discussion Starter · #1 ·
A few weeks ago I got the hitch and wiring kit installed on my Taos. This is a specific draw-tite that doesn't appear to be available now, it is fully under the bumper (no cutting required) and thus a bit lower than the currently available ones which are higher up and require more trimming of the bumper. On the other hand this one is rated for more tongue weight than the other ones. It was pretty easy to install, took me about 2 hours total taking it easy between the hitch and the wiring harness. It is about 8" from the ground so it does drop the rear ground clearance a bit. Wrestling it into place by myself was a pain, I'd recommend getting another helper and put the back wheels on some ramps to give yourself more room to work. The hardest part of the wiring kit was fishing the 12V line up through the front fenderwell into the engine compartment.
