I ordered a tow package for my midsize SUV. Anyone have experience installing these or can tell me what I am in for?

Where did you buy it from what did it include?

On my older pickup tow package included a oil and transmission cooler. Hopefully it comes with some instructions.

Purchased from Summit Racing. Just a II class hitch and instructions.

As long as it is specific to you vehicle it should be easy. If not I hope you have a good drill and some sharp bits. Goes best with 2 people but I have installed one by myself.

Yes I researched and it's for my vehicle so we should be good there.

You bought a receiver hitch. Piece of cake to install... depending on what you putting it on, the ones for unibody cars are not as easy/friendly as the ones for body on frame cars.

You will need a torque wrench, but with instructions should be pretty straight forward.

Buy and install an auxiliary transmission fluid cooler and you'll be all set.
