The video that i found linked on here showed an install that had metal brackets or ears that went on after the hitch was installed. Are those in the kit or did they get left out of mine? There were no directions or part list included so i can't check that. I don't think they actually do anything, but maybe they do. I am going to call the dealer i purchased it from, but i want to know from someone that has done it before.

Anyone's guess. Prior experience in a different industry would suggest that it did serve a purpose, but it was likely overengineered. The cost savings of removing this part likely outweighed whatever benefit this cover brought.

Believe me when I say - when I got to the part of the outdated instructions that said to install this cover, I had an "OH SH*T" moment thinking my parts I'd ordered were bogus! :)
