Any experiences with the Hidden Hitch? Seeing prices for HH around $105.00 plus shipping.
It seems this has to be cheaper than the $425 for the Honda package. I would buy either a Honda or aftermarket Tran and P/S cooler.

Is the HH easy to install?

Also the Honda Tran and P/S coolers look like they just added fins to increase cooling the existing stock coolers. True or ??

I have xero experience with hitches and towing but I am a mechanical a genius. (Kidding slightly, I used to rebuild Volkswagon engines before I swore them off. Who wants to crall under them every 3000 miles to adjust valves?)
Thanks in advance for the help.

I personally like the Hidden Hitch better than the Honda, because you do not have to cut up the bottom of your bumper.

But you have 02 and I would recommend you install both of the Honda coolers to make sure you do not void your 3yr 36000 mile warranty. If you could buy the coolers separately, the $425 for the entire Honda package looks pretty good. The ATF cooler for 00 is $165 by itself. Also I think the Honda package includes everything including a ball.

The hidden hitch route on a 2000 costs are around
Hidden hitch $150
Wiring $ 30
Rec drop/rise $ 45
Ball $ 10
ATF cooler $165
TOTAL $400

You may find some of the info I have written to others useful at:

There are also many threads on the topic on this site also.

Check out www.ehitches.com. I think the HH for the ODY was about $100. IMHO the coolers aren't really necessary unless you are really towing a trailer, like a boat, on a regular basis.
