Vitara Receiver/Hitch

Anyone bought and been satisfied (quality and price) with any particular brand of receiver (2")?
Hidden Hitch, Putnam, Shelton,...?
Any recommended vendors?

Re: Vitara Receiver/Hitch

I just bought a hitch for my GV and the suzuki wiring harness. Bought it from the dealer. It is a drawtite receiver hitch. Fits great and was a 10 minute install. Bolts into factory holes and sits tucked right below the bumper. Very satisfied with it. I am planning to make a tow bar for the samurai and tow it behind the Grand Vitara. The Harness plugs in behind the left side tail light assmbly, down through a rubber plug , across the bottom of the bumper to the hitch.

Re: Vitara Receiver/Hitch

I have the Hidden Hitch on my 2000 Tracker and it's a nice unit. I have the outside basket that slides into the reciever to throw all of my fishing gear on (so the squid guts don't get in the interior!) I think that I paid $129 for the hitch.

For correction, they do have 6" SpOA kits, just not weld on. But I guess you could weld anything if you really wanted to.

Re: Vitara Receiver/Hitch

Jeff,

Is yours a class II or III? I am wanting to do the same thing -- would have liked to have made it to Paragon but I haven't gotten my transfer case woes taken care of yet. Might of chanced it anyway if I could have towed it to and from -- just in case it broke while there.

I see you have the new XL-7. How do you like it? My wife likes it better than our Vitara. We've been satisfied with ours so far -- had some trouble with the rear diff. that was replaced under warranty. I think there is still something not quite right -- some drivetrain vibration still exists at certain speeds.

I'll be back.

Re: Vitara Receiver/Hitch

It is a class II. But I did check into it handleing the samurai. I was told that I would have no problem. I am going to fab a tow bar to flat tow with it. I love the XL-7. I have three kids and 2 are in car seats. It made a big differance from the GV that I had prior. I also noticed that the ride was alot nicer and there is definately more power.
Jeff
