    What's included in each BMW X5/X6 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/X6 Conversion Package.

    The BMW X5/X6 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/X6 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. For vehicles with numerous trailer lights, Stealth harnesses are designed to increase the current capacity from the typical 5-amp solid state limitation to a full 20 amps.

    Attention to detail

    Dropped off my 2021 BMW X6. They installed the Hitch in a few hours and delivered a clean well designed product. I’m very happy with the results. I attached a KUAT bike rack to it with zero issue. I would highly recommend.

    Stealth Hitch on a 2022 BMW X5 45e

    My overall experience with the stealth hitch was great. I was originally going to pay to have it installed, but I had a free day and the required tools, so I decided to tackle it myself. I managed to complete the install in 8 hours. Fit and instructions were excellent, but the job certainly requires a higher than average amount of mechanical aptitude and patience (no fault of Stealth Hitch). My wife helped with the bumper removal/installation steps, but otherwise I worked alone. There was a YouTube video that was helpful along with the included instructions.

    Great Hitch, Amazing Customer Support

    The hitch is perfect for my BMW X5, completely hidden and unlike the BMW version, the kick to open feature still works. Had an issue with the wiring and Jeremy the tech figured out the issue and I was able to fix it myself. In an age where great service can be tough to find, these guys killed it.

    BMW X3

    The Stealth Hitch was installed on my BMW X3. The hitch is rock solid with my Kuat bike rack. The certified installer list made it easy to find qualified resources. Great product and customer service.
