    What's included in each BMW X5 hitch package?

    Stealth Hitches offers a rack only package and a combo package with tow and rack options. The same cross beam and vertical latch block are used on all packages so if you need to upgrade to tow later you can with the BMW X5 Hitch Conversion Package.

    The BMW X5 Hitch hitch Rack Package comes with standard 2" detachable rack receiver that accepts current versions of bike racks, ski racks, cargo platforms, and other square tube accessories.  A wiring harness is not required if rack connections are the customers only application.

    The BMW X5 Hitch Combo Hitch Package uses a detachable ball mount that operates differently than a typical square tube receiver hitch. When inserted into the stainless-steel receiver block, a tight connection is created to the vehicle frame, eliminating the jerking and banging associated with square tube receivers type hitches during starts and stops.  This solid connection creates less wear and tear on the vehicle transmission and is a more pleasurable ride for the passengers.

    Stealth Standard Wiring Harness

    Our "Stealth" wiring harness and controller is specifically designed to monitor and duplicate the tail light functions.  Drawing current from the tail light circuits can cause vehicle faults, especially on European vehicles.  Our controller draws current directly from the battery to eliminate this issue.

    Active Harness

    We also offer an active harness option for added features such as:

    • Disabling the back-up sensor to eliminate beeping while backing up to your trailer.
    • Rear camera zoom at the trailer connection point for positioning the vehicle and preventing damage to the vehicle.
    • Stability control to limit trailer sway. 
    • This harness requires the same programming as the factory hitch harness.
    • We can program your vehicle remotely, preventing the need to take the car to a dealer or BMW shop for programming.

    Stealth on a BMW X5

    Since I'm pretty good with the tools, I installed the hitch myself with the help of my body shop to remove the rear bumper cover. Once the bumper was off, the installation instructions were spot on and all went well. The only trouble encountered was installing the wiring harness bracket to the hitch block. The instructions need to have better clarity on the position of the bracket and support bar. Outside of that the wiring with the passive control was very easy. Best part about the hitch is that it is hidden and doesn't take away from the looks of the vehicle and can handle more weight than other hitches. GREAT HITCH AND COMPANY

    Great product and customer service

    No doubt about it — it’s expensive, but once the sting of the financial hit has waned you’ll realize it’s a very good product. Fitment is perfect. Instructions are easily to follow and the hitch and carrier are extremely high quality. Have only towed about 400 miles so far but they have been flawless and effortless.

    Easier than I thought

    Installation was not difficult as the instructions were easy to understand and guide you along the way. Easy to use, don’t know it is there and makes towing easy.

    BMW X5 Stealth Hitch - amazing

    I was really impressed with the directions (and pictures). It made the install go without any issue. It really made all the difference. Scheduled the active harness configuration of my X5 with Okee/CodeMyCar and that too was seamless. While a bit pricey, I would highly recommend this hitch!
