This hitch is extremely well built,for 2006 EXPLORER very little air damn modification was necessary. i shaved off less than 1 inch of it to get it to sit nicely on the hitch. As for installation, its kind of a headache. The frame did not have all the holes that were shown in the installation, so i drilled all but two and fishing the bolt/square flange was obnoxious. more than the 30 min install time the instructions suggested. Wish the receiver was about 4 inches longer but still its a great product. I would recommend to anyone looking to buy it.
