    Torklift Ecohitch and Wilco Hitchgate Solo

    Anyone install the Torklift Ecohitch and Wilco Hitchgate Solo on a 12'-17' model?

    I just finished installing it on a 2016 Hybrid Model. Noticed that it rubs up on the bumper, anyone has the same issue?
    Wondering if I had to push it all the way forward.

    I Was unable to install the Wobble free piece of the Solo Hitchgate. How did you guys work around this? Did you install a non Wilco option like this one or another option works better.:

    Also noticed that when I shake it bumps on the Muffler, anyone have this too? is this a potential issue?

    Let me know your thoughts on this, I really want to know how people have dealt with this. Or if they just accept the bumper rubbing. Otherwise I might have to sell it and get the Curt Version, Not looking forward to the loss in departure angle with that.

    I have the eco hitch installed on my 13. I bought a cargo carrier for back there and took it on a 500 mile trip and the wobble was horrible. Had me paranoid and scared it would eventually break off. I didn't install the anti wobble as i wanted to be able to remove the carrier easy and with the stabilizer it came with barely any room to get a good fit anyways since its sitting in the bumper skin. I emailed curt and they recommended a anti wobble that goes inside the tubing.
    I haven't noticed any rubbing .
