Thank you for your quick reply. So the picture is of a tow hitch and not an activity mount correct?
yes, but the activity mount is also in the same location. Only difference is the limited capacity.Thank you for your quick reply. So the picture is of a tow hitch and not an activity mount correct?
Would you please tell me the size of the OEM receiver? 2" or 1-1/4"? I see it's a Class I, but can't find info on the receiver size.Installed Hitch with the help of my son, follow instructions, be patient and did it in about 1.5 hour
bought tow hitch at local dealer, list price $322.50 I paid net price $182.75
I made the mistake of not buying the tow bumper facia cover PT228-16222 which I just ordered.
List price $96.75 I paid net price $63.00 I'll add pictures when is installed.
Thanks, that will be ok. I can always put a 2" ball on a 1-1/4" tow bar. Should work fine for a light load like a 2-kayak trailer. I like the idea of going with the OEM tow package, but it's expensive. Don't know whether there's a liability in replacing the OEM bumper beam with the narrower Curt tow package.Looks like 1 1/4 receiver. I have a trailer hitch haven't installed it yet.
I have a 2023 Cross XLE AWD. It has multiple sensors, but I don't think it has a parking sensor? It does let me know if I'm getting close to people or objects. Is that what you're referring to? Toyota is going to do the install for me next week. Not something I want to tackle. The priciest part was the wiring harness.I want to stay oem on mine. I bought the trailer setup everything except wiring harness online for just below $300.00 with shipping. I'm still hoping to hear from someone who installed hitch with parking sensors in the bumper.
When I take it to Toyota on Tuesday I'll ask them if they have to recalibrate any sensors when they take the bumper off.Thanks for the reply. Yes that is the parking sensor. Just looking for info on someone who has done it in their garage and unplugged the sensors to take the bumper off and plugged them back in on reinstall. If one would have to recalibrate the sensors or they will just work fine. I guess no one has done this part yet.
They said sensors don't need to be recalibrated, but I'm very glad they're doing the job for the time they quoted me. They're 5 hours into it and now a second guy is helping. They need to run the wiring harness to the front and it looks like it's quite a chore.Much appreciated thank you.
You're welcome. 🙂 I'll post a photo of the completed job.Wow thought it was plug and play. Looks complicated.You made the right choice.
Thanks for the follow up. Much appreciated.
