Doesn't jiggle around at all. It uses a 3/4" allan wrench (long neck 3/8" socket) to tighten a wedge. Once that wedge is tight inside the hitch, its not going anywhere. I was even able to still put my locking receiver pin back through so anyone with the tool can't walk off with it either.

I think mine was because I attached an American flag to my Firestik...maybe someone took that the wrong way. Sorry to hear it man.

Mine was easily washed off. Getting keyed on the other hand is bad sorry to hear it. Is it deep or just barely?

Down to the primer. Touch up paint did nothing for it. Having a black car really has its cons.

There's got to be a special place in hell for people who key someone's car if love to catch someone doing this so I can key their eyes out so they can't see a nice car

Mine was keyed before I bought it but someone had managed to cover it up pretty well (may have not been as bad as borabora's). But now that I've got through enough trees, it blends in with the rest of my decimated paint job!

It's a shame because I was just about to buy some black housing headlights and a Rola rack...but that will be set back until the door is painted/patched.

That's beyond unacceptable. I can't believe keying and tire slashing are a thing. Even if you have a problem with someone I feel like damaging their valuable possesions is incredibly cowardly and pathetic.

this is how I spent my afternoon.

plasti-dip'd the grill and installed the aspen offroad mesh insert. took me way longer than it should have.


probably took a little longer than it should have because I kept getting sidetracked watching my chiefs go 7-0.
