Can Shims be Used on Draw-Tite Hitch For 2022 Lexus RX 350 to Avoid Trimming


75540 hitch draw tite for 2022 Lexus rx 350. In oder to avoid trimming the lower bumper panel, can one shim between the hitch and the vehicle frame to slightly the hitch for clearance. If yes how thick of a shim approx would be required. Thanks.


Expert Reply:

No, you definitely should not shim between the hitch and frame of your 2022 Lexus RX 350 to install the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75540.

You'll need to install the # 75540 as shown in the instructions, as adding shims or doing other type of modifications will have an adverse affect on the integrity and stability of the hitch. The trimming is a 3" x 3" square on the underside of the fascia that will not be noticeable at all on your Lexus.
