Thank you. That will give others an idea of what it looks like. This is what Chevy should show when advertising products they are selling.

I bought the hitch package as part of my deal and took it in today for installation. Was called near the end of the day saying the fit wasn't right for the components they recieved so after having the bumper removed they decided to put everything back together and wait for different parts which should arrive next week.

Quaid, I hope your installation was done correctly after seeing your pictures. My service department was concerned about drilled holes in the hitch assembly not matching up where they were supposed to so they decided it was best not to do the install. It was an inconvenience bringing it in and not getting the hitch done but thankful they didn't try to force it. I did get recall work done for a camshaft oil control valve center bolt problem that I was not aware of. So not a total loss for the day.

I am glad to hear that your dealership was so responsible about the installation fitment. Please share detailed photos of the installation once they complete the job, if you are able. I would very much like to see the results from others with hitch installations.

That's the first I am reading about the recall for a "camshaft oil control valve center bolt problem". If you have any identifying details about the recall, can you please add them here: 2021+ Chevy Trailblazer Recalls

Link posted in recall section. Like I said I was unaware of it. My service rep called it a recall but it looks like a service bulletin of some sort. I'll post pics of the hitch install when it happens as well.

Is my dealer ripping me off?

So I bought the trailer hitch pkg through the dealership I have an AWD RS. When I spoke to my service guy he said the dealer install was for the hitch eventhough the hitch and harness come together they are trying to charge me for the harness install separately. Before I go on next tuesday I wanted to be sure I wasn't being scammed as I've heard AWD RS already comes setup for the towing pkg minus the hitch and diffuser modification.

@TrashPandaPerformance by "diffuser", do you mean the bezel? The separation of the package, and what V92 actually includes was discussed a page or two back in the thread, but I think you should hold your dealership accountable to whatever the originally promised you. If they said you'd have an entire towing package for X dollars, and are now saying they made a mistake and it's more than X dollars, hold them accountable to your original deal... especially if it's written and signed. Here's a relevant link for the previous discussion:

So got the hitch installed of course wiring harness sold separately so that will be another potential trip unless I can easily install it myself with a friends help. Knowing GM it means taking the whole effing rear diffuser off to simply plug one thing in. Does anyone have actual pictures of the hitch with wiring installed or aside from the one bad google image photos of where the plug is from a location standpoint to see if I can shimmy my hands or not need to remove excess parts.

Post #52 in this discussion Quaid has a picture of what it looks like minus the harness. It looks like the accessible area is small.
