I've got a few pics but nowhere to upload them. The hitch I got is part number 92196009 and it fits like a glove. Conveniently my car is a 2011 so I had the indented section to cut out for the hitch.

They've been pretty good to me for several years. You get a 30-day free trial, and they have accounts that start at about $1.50/mo. with several GB of storage available.

I have had ZERO luck in getting one of those 92196009 VE tow hitches but would love to see pics of one installed to see if it's worth continuing to pursue!!

I know I'm a little late to the party here but is there a consensus as to the easiest, best way to wire up a 4-flat tow harness? I don't mind splicing into the existing wiring but prefer a plug in setup if there is one.

Thanks,
Paul

I used an off the shelf harness with T-taps. If there was a plug & play I'd have bought it but I don't think it exists in this hemisphere.

Thanks James. BTW, I'm not real tech savvy and am wondering... this thread did not have any activity since last year (2019) yet you replied to my post pretty quick. How did my post pop up on your "radar screen"?
