    agreed. it looks like crap without the cover. i will be purchasing the cover, i just wanted to make sure the (significantly) cheaper hitch would fit behind said cover.

    that being said, The price for this small plastic cover is outrageous.

    My vote goes to Curt over Hidden Hitch, I've had both before on different cars and Curt hitches are built better.

    Anyone know a true towing capacity of a 2011 with a 2.8t ?

    I really want to tow my racecar but I highly doubt I can

    Just remember the receiver will not increase towing GVW unless you install the engine & trans coolers along with softwear and the switch. You will only have a towing GVW for with no tow package around 2000 lbs.

    What software and switch are you talking about? I installed the factory trans cooler along with my hitch and occasionally tow in excess of 2000 lbs without issue. As far as I know, I'm good to 3500 lbs on my 2012.

    The 2012 can tow 3,500 pounds from the factory. According to GM accessories zone, the cooler does not fit the 3.6. The 2012 and 2013 tow package is only the hitch and wire harness.

    The Tow Haul switch and softwear come with the tow package.

    2010-12 3.0L -2500lbs (no trans cooler)
    2010-12 3.0L -3500lbs (trans cooler) factory or dealer add on (option)
    2010-11 2.8L -3500lbs (it has a trans cooler with the turbo)
    2013 3.6L -2500lbs (no tow package)
    2013 3.6L -3500lbs (tow package- which includes trans cooler) factory option


    All is according to the Owners Manuals

    Hi adamjeeps,

    Not sure what is listed in the GM Accessories Zone, but trans cooler kit #22772227 fits the 2012 SRX with the 3.6 liter engine perfectly. My understanding is that the towing package consists of a hitch and trans cooler as well.

    Switch and software must be a 2010-2011 issue.

    Re: SRX aftermarket trailer hitch advice please!

    I looked in my manual, 2,500 is listed for without tow package, 3,500 with tow package for 2012. So that must include the transmission cooler. Sorry about that error. When I go to build it on the Cadillac website, it lists "trailering provisions" as a hitch and wire harness. I guess that is not the "tow package" which includes the cooler.
