Adding a hitch

Currently own a 2002 Nissan Pathfinder and would like to add a hitch to it.

Any idea if this is a 'do it yourselfer' type project or am I better of trying to find someone to do it for me.

Any ideas of cost's and what it would involve tool wise, time wise, and experience wise?

You can probably find a "Bolt-on" hitch for any newer model vehicle which takes very little experience to install. The only problem you may find is when you have to remove existing bolts on the bumper/frame to install the hitch. They are usually very tight or corroded and not easily removed. The other problem you may have is installing the wiring harness. Check your owners manual, if you have a tow package with the truck you may be able to get a plug in harness.

Good luck,
