obviously it wont. the hitch is now the reinforcement bar structure.

what ever brackets came to mount the bumper with this hitch were probably C shaped like on the ends of the front euro reinforcing square under tubing. I haven't see what that looks like.
Forum Member Delibes installed this same bar on his first wagon-so perhaps he can shed some light, my guess its just c shaped end brackets that bolt up to the bumper under the rubber trim~ and maybe had a flat piece of steel strap going across that would clear the hitch bar.
