Looks good. Don't forget to upgrade your transcooler if you wanna do big towing.

Did you have to drop the bumper or remove the crush bar?

Very cool, do we know what the CVT is rated at specifically for towing? I would imagine thats the real restriction for the hybrid not the "frame"/body.

Might this be better than OEM?

Curious if it’s beefier or mounts more securely

Non-tow pkg equipped Mavericks are rated to tow 2,000 lbs. with or without factory hitch.

So would this hitch increase the hitch weight capacity higher then the 400lb factory rating? So if I changed mine out with this one it would be 600lbs?

Yeah 600# tongue weight. I’m not sure it would be worth changing just for that.
max towing is still 4000# or 2000# depending on your vehicle options.

I am guessing you want to hitch mount your motorcycle carrier! Great question.

As I understand it actually means to say trailer can weigh max weight of 2000# or 4000# depending on mave AND Max tongue tongue weight can be no more than 400# so you would have to put enough weight in rear of camper to lower the tongue weight to 400#!😇
