Towing setup and 5+2

Has anyone installed the tow setup from JLR? 3rd party and can post pics?

Would be especially interested in a 5+2 setup and installation pictures.

There's the quote at https://www.discoverysport.net/forum/...ordered-2.html - that says you have to lose the spare - curious if someone else has run into that, and/or seen how the complete setup looks.

This post on the UK forum has some photos: Discovery Sport Forums - At Last l Have My Tow Bar with pics. There are more posts on the UK forum and several pertain to towing so you might want to check over there for more info.

I found the pictures and the installation manual by searching for Towbar on Topix.

You won't lose the spare on adding the tow kit on the 5+2. The tow kit is kinda shaped around it. I have one on order, but won't see it for a few weeks. I will try to remember to take some pics as I go along.
