Trailer hitch

I was wondering it if was possible to install a class 3 trailer hitch on an '01 gts. I need the class 3 hitch for the 2" receiving square size because i want to use a moto jack rack (www.motojackrack.com) to transport my dirtbike. I don't need it for the towing capacity of a class 3 hitch, because i know a celicas not the strongest of cars for towing. If anyone knows where i could purchase or have a class 3 hitch custom made i would really appreciate it. Thanks!

yes...

you might need some upgraded rear shocks though... it might sag... id say leafs, but our cars dont have those...

go to "the rack" they do rack installs (if you have one of those stores...) other wise go to a bicycle shop, or a u-haul dealership they do hitch installs... they will do it, and they might laugh at you if your lieing to them and you actually tow a boat behind your car LOL...

im going for a roof rack on the celica... for canoes,bikes, snowboards, skis, and ladders...

I called up U-haul and they can't do it because there are no premade class 3 hitches for a celica...anyone have any idea where i could maybe have one custom made or something? thanks.
