New guy with a ?: trailer hitch for 2006 G500?

Hi all,

New G owner here - a 2006. I did a search and wasn't able to get any clarity on aftermarket trailer hitches available for my year. I found some for 2005 and older and then 2010 and newer, but nothing in-between.

Any help pointing me in the right direction is greatly appreciated - thanks!

Terrific - thank you Alan!
Well, I pulled the trigger today and ordered the one Alan pointed out. I called Jason at MB of Westwood this morning beforehand - he did a search and found out that there are no MY06 G hitch kits in the U.S. nor in Germany.

The VTS unit looks very beefy - I'm looking forward to installing it. I'm going to have to eat tomato soup for the next six months to pay for it, tho... :crybaby2::D
Good luck!
Thanks Tex - I will indeed remove the bumper. Some good bonding time between me and my new-to-me G. :)

G-wagenaccessories emailed me the hardware and wiring instructions (before I ordered, which was a nice touch) and one of the first steps is to remove the bumper.
Wow... that's crazy expensive.
700 and change isn't cheap, for sure, but it could be worse. Now THIS is crazy expensive:
