Exact same situation here, including the truck option. I have the factory hitch and have not found a need for anything else. I remove the bike rack so rarely that being able to see the hitch is not an issue, partly because I ride regularly, partly because I have the Tundra for towing, and partly because my bike rack weighs about 90,000 pounds.

That bike rack does loom like is weights 90,000 pounds, is that for motorcycle’s. You can’t get a simple straight hook for one bike.

A forum post should be long enough to cover the subject yet short enough to generate interest.

Nope. I usually carry two bikes to races, and as much time as I spend carrying my two wheel investments over roads with craters that rival those on the moon I want them secured.

Does your S have the factory tow package or will it only be the Stealth hitch? I ordered my S with the Factory tow options so I could get the extra on screen features, but I'm still planning on adding the Stealth Hitch as well, if possible because I like the "stealth" look

and even more of an exact situation, not only do we both have trucks for towing, I too have a Tundra haha. off topic but I debated on keeping or getting rid of the tundra when I decided to order the F-Pace but decided on keeping it, I love my Tundra and I've spent some time on a few upgrades for it as well, and since it's paid off, it's nice to keep around.

p.s. my bike rack is the Kuat rack as well, burly little racks! can't go wrong. I get tons of compliments even from people who don't even know what it is! They say "that's really nice! what is it?" hahaha

The factory installed receiver is quite unobtrusive. To be honest, I hardly notice it now.
Give it a little time. IMO, it would be overkill to replace an already installed one.
If not factory installed, absolutely.

True, I've heard that from others as well. I won't have my F-Pace until August so for now I guess I'll see if it bothers me or not. I have higher priority mods to do first before replacing an existing hitch anyway
Thanks for your input!

Has this been completed yet? Can you post pictures and, if you don't mind, the name of the shop that did it and the cost? I'm not far from you and have been considering adding this so that I can put a bike rack on the back.

Hi everyone, if you are interested the Stealth Hitch does fit on the F-Pace SVR. I took a bit of a risk after doing some measuring between my S and the SVR at the dealership during the trade in and purchase. Measurements looked close, so I ordered the Stealth and crossed my fingers. Today it arrived and I did the install. The install was pretty straight forward. Most of the connectors in an around the boot and under the bumper are the same from the SVR to the standard F-Pace, however the connectors/bolts, etc in the wheel wells are similar but in very different places. Also, the crimp connectors that connect the bumper cover to the fender, are quite a bit more difficult to disengage than on the standard F-Pace. So if any of you SVR owners decide to do this yourself, be very careful pulling the bumper cover away from the fenders and disengaging those crimp tabs.

Lastly, I didn't finish the wiring install yet. That's for this weekend with a multimeter.

Pics below.

First shot is the SVR with the 2 inch receiver engaged.
Second shot is during the install after I got the bumper cover removed.
Third shot is of the Stealth Mechanism and cross member that replaces the Jag bumper support.
Fourth shot is of the SVR after install with nothing attached to the stealth receiver, therefore, the SVR doesn't look like it even has a hitch.
