Anyone have a spare cover ? Know where I can get one?
Do the GT's have the same cover? Wonder if they fit if they do...?

I'm looking to doing a modification and want to see if they pop out and replaceable... I looking online and don't see them for sale anywhere... I'd hate to hack mine and not be able to replace it..

Its just a guide to cut out not a cover. once you cut it out there is no replacing it.
There is no hitch behind there.

If you're careful with your cuts, you could probably fabricate some brackets behind there that could affix it back into location.

It's outlined there to allow for the Aussie-only "class three frame mounted hitch" that was not natively available in the USA.

The class1 hitches (that mount under the bumper and just bolted on) don't use this hole, but the class3 hitches (rated at much higher tongue weight and overall hauling capacity) gain that added benefits by replacing the bumper brackets within the frame rails with that of the hitch, and then bolted to the frame and the rear bumper securely.

I've seen several CVRX8 cars with the little red "fog light" in that location, pictures taken in foreign countries.

edit:

Rigid lighting is absolutely awesome. Running a pair on the Jeep for reverse lighting and it's nice being able to see where you're going.

You could possibly fabricate clips or Velcro system to the "cover" if you cut it out clean enough OR....you could put mesh there with the light behind it. That mesh would be sort of a compromise for both the light and having something solid there.
