No cutting, I also did the the install myself.
It’s very simple, you’ll also fit underneath without the need to jack the car.
Tow capacity can be tricky, your hitch, Ball, Ball Mount, Vehicle, Tires, Axle will all have a max capacity. My curt hitch on my micra is rated for 1000lbs, my Micra is rated for 2000lbs and a max hitch tongue weight of only 100lbs. So can it pull 2000lbs? yea probably can it do it safely and stop appropriately, I would say no probably not.
