I had ordered a Kurt Hitch however because of a misunderstanding it was returned to sender. I am thinking now of Fabrication of my own. I'm pretty good at welding and was thinking perhaps I can weld brackets onto the frame rails then have a hitch that bolts to those. Avoiding drilling holes in my spare tire trunk as well as the various fitment issues I've seen. I'm sure the Kurt works fine and for towing what the 1.9 is capable of. Anyway if anyone has suggestions as to alternative locations to attach a tow package to with welding or a combination of welding and bolts/nuts please make them.

There are threads on here where some members have shown how they made their own hitch. Search around a bit and see what you find
