    Hey all,

    I'm a bit confused about how the X hitch works. From googling, it looks like there's a pop-open slot to put in a trailer hitch adapter. Is that built in to every X? Can you take the hitch/rack off one X and put it on another that wasn't ordered with that option?

    I don't think this is the case. Only cars who ordered accessory hitch or tow hitch have the option-but will defer to someone who didn't order either.

    So far it's only factory installed. Have heard reports that it may be able to be added at the Service Center at some point but not yet.

    Oh, and just to clarify, so far the hitch delivered with both the Accessory Hitch option orders and the Tow Package option orders have been the very same Bosal removable hitch with a 2" receiver.
