FS Trailer hitch W126 receiver, New Style

This is a New Style receiver for the w126 body and different from others available.
The torque tube is fitted behind the bumper and allows full travel of the bumper on impact. Nothing is fastened to the bumper.
Installs at the three bolts on each side at the bumper install points and two 3/8" bolts into the spare tire well. Installation on an SD is very easy. I have a dozen of these receivers installed on member's cars now for towing and bike racks. Price $195,00 plus freight. Weight is 30#, ships by Fed X from Blaine ,Washington.
Pic1 There is easy access to the bolts with flat wrench and socket for the other two.
Pic2 Before puling he bumper back remove the mug guards on each side.
Pic3 Rest the bumper on a couple of dairy box's or kitchen chairs then
thread the receiver over the bumper bolts and shove the bumper back in place.
After reinstalling the bumper drill the two 3/8”bolt holes into the spare tire well and
install the two bolts, supplied. Yes, remove the spare before drilling.
Pic4 Ready to ship, no additional packaging required with FedX
Pic5.The receiver is set back under the bumper, a neat look, and behind
the bumper impact collapse point
The bumper will re install tight to the body with no space, the original look.
