    I purchased hitch mount spare tire carrier that has three welded studs which I believe fits a 5x4.5 lug pattern. My RRC has 5x6.5 and the spare won’t mount. I am considering bolting on a wheel adapter or having a fab shop fix it. Does anyone have any ideas or recommendations for wheel adapter?

    Are there any diagrams or pictures available that show the installation of the wiring associated with a trailer hitch on a 2012 Range Rover Sport.

  8. British trailer hitch

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Has anyone tried using a trailer hitch receiver from the UK? I've seen a lot of them for sale way cheaper than one from the US. The main difference I can see is that the US one is just a receiver and would need the tow ball while the UK version has a gooseneck tow ball all in one piece. Thanks...

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Hey all, I'm moving in about a month or so, and I've been reading a bit about getting my 2003 Range Rover ready for towing. I'm planning on renting a U-Haul trailer to use for a few days (cheaper than renting a big truck + no mileage charges), but U-Haul likes to do things by the book so...

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    My dealer wants to charge 7 hours of labor to install a trailer hitch in my 2014 RRS. That's about $1200. From what I have seen online it shouldn't take a professional mechanic that long. Does anyone have any dealer book values or hours they were charged. I just asked how much to install the...

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    So based off the pictures I've seen, the RRSs that have a factory hitch, have a different rear body colored bumper fascia. For those with aftermarket hitches or hitches installed at the dealer, do they cut out an area for the hitch, or is that body colored piece replaceable and something you...
