Spent a lot of time and I've researched Torklift, eTrailer et cetera. Has anyone sourced and installed either a 1.125 or 2.0 receiver on the GT Sport?

Thanks in advance.

Let me know if you find out! I contacted both Curt and Drawtite and both replied stating they have no current plans to release a hitch for the sport trim...bummer

Is there really a difference in rear sub-frames from the base to sport? I wouldn't imagine the different suspension would change frame mount points for the hitches. You might have to cut some fascia to allow for the hitch tube to be exposed, but I would be surprised to see them making 2 different rear ends for the GT's.

I believe the issue is the shape of the flanges of the hitch. Because the regular GT has a single exhaust, the flanges are asymmetrical. With the GT Sport having a dual exhaust setup, the flanges would need to be identical or would just need to be different than the regular GT hitch in order to clear the dual exhausts.

Have you been able to make any progress on this? I’d sure like to figure out putting one on mine.
