    I saw some youtube videos on how to install ecohitch. Seems like a lot of work (especially taking off the bumper panel or cutting the bottom cover). I'd be scared to try it myself. Wondering if anyone knows a shop I can go to in Vancouver area to install it.

    The Torklift Central shop is just down I5 in Kent. I had them do my installation on a Saturday morning. In and out in a couple of hours and they clearly knew what they were doing.

    I spoke to my preferred bodyshop before deciding to make the trip down. They looked at the instructions and figured it would be easy enough to do, but in the end I just felt better about having Torklift do it themselves. Gave us the excuse for a weekend away and drive the car - never a bad thing in my opinion!

    That's awesome. I had no idea that they did installations themselves and that they're so close to the border. I might have to replicate your trip. May I ask, what was the cost?
