Anyone install Replica Sti Rear Under Spoiler with Curt hitch?

Hey anyone have this eBay Replica Sti Rear Under Spoiler AND have a tow hitch installed? Specifically a Curt Hitch??

I love the look of the Spoiler but I also need the the functionality of the Hitch.

Im hoping that the hitch sits far back and low enough to work. If not I may just buy the Spoiler and if it doesnt work I will have a carbon fiber spoiler for sale on the classfields soon.

I believe that falls under the issue of different objects occupying the same space at the same time.

Even if the hitch somehow didn't block the under spoiler when mounted, you wouldn't be able to mount the underspoiler to the proper mounting points while the hitch is installed as they both use the same mounting points. You could possibly extend (drop it down a bit) the underspoiler by having a friend with some welding skills fab up new mounting brackets or somehow integrating the existing brackets into the trailer hitch...

Moo cow.
