so I want to install a hitch pretty soon on my ML. I bought my ML so I can go camping and offroading and so that I can pull a tent trailer. I was looking at the spot where the hitch would stick out and the spare tire holder is in the way so would that mean I couldn't get to my spare tire with out having to remove the hitch? Also what's the cheapest hitch that will tow at least 4500lbs? Thanks for the help

I have the Draw-Tite hitch on mine and I have no problem getting to the spare tire.

The standard ML hitch doesn't interfere with the spare tire.

The hitch only bolts to the existing rear frame rail behind the (and forming part of) the rear bumper.

There are a couple of brands that are copies of the OEM (which is no longer available). Prices are all similar. Stick with those.
