I removed the tow hitch cover and put on the smaller cover with a hitch. Tip when you remove the cover there’s 2 tabs underneath that you should remove first and then pull it off.

Brilliant! What a great solution, please share more details and is that a recovery loop hitch? Did you fabricate the smaller hitch cover?

Thanks for the tip about the lower tabs. I haven't tried pulling mine off yet. Tell us more about the recovery hitch you have in the picture. It looks pretty sweet.
 
That looks so much better! Did the smaller cover come with the vehicle? I wasn’t aware of any other cover aside from the big main one.
Yes the cover came with the vehicle. I’m guessing all the trims would get the cover for the people that are gonna tow.

Thanks for the reply! It's great to hear these updates as people are taking deliveries. Was is just stored in one of the rear cargo compartments? I want to make sure there's one in mine when I pick up!

It’s a 41.22 Inc Hitch Slider. I’ve had one on my 4R and works great at protecting the hitch/bumper when wheeling.

In the cargo area there will be everything the dealer didn't install. The bumper protector thing, front plate mount, mini hitch cover.

Yah there’s a small storage compartment in the rear cargo area. That’s where my hitch cover was just under the cargo mat.

Yes for sure i will post a pic tonight when the wife brings it back
 
I'm a tow pintle type, the rings are nice but you need additional parts in order to hook a rope up to it.
 
The front ones look decent , but don't think I'll use the one in the rear. Probably just tie down points.
