One more nice video:

The only mistake is to drill new car. We can find better place to connect the ground wire. I have ordered Curt T-connector for my Tucson and waiting for it to arrive. Unfortunately, shipping was so expensive for trailer hitch, so I must buy it in local store It will be AutoHak, not Curt

Amazon prime has free shipping for the curt hitch for Prime members. Good price too at $120.

Relative to the performance of the tucson, nothing much other than the size of the hitch opening, 1.25" vs 2". If you already have accessories for 1.25" like bike racks, then a 1.25" is worth considering. However, if you don't own any accessories yet, then I'd get the 2" class III hitch because it's bigger, more stable with racks, and can hold more tongue weight.

If you have a lovely wife, sexy hot lover, cool car, no problems with the government and revenue authorities, and when you go out the sun always shines and all passers smile to you - common dude, say NO to drugs!

Make sure you also order an Exhaust hanger removal tool, and grease up those hangers before taking them off. Everyone seems to get held up at that step.
