Today we're going to be taking a look at the best hitches available for our 2010 Dodge Durango. Here on the top we've got our hidden hitch class 3, this is part number 87608. Just below it's the Curt class 3, that part number is C13182, and then here on the bottom we've got the hidden hitches twin, the draw type part number 75713. Now a slight cosmetic difference that we're going to notice in the Curt, is that here just behind the receiver tube, the round tube is straight, whereas with both the hidden hitch, and with the draw type, it's got an angle that's going to continue from the bracket, all the way up to the receiver. Now a few of the other differences we'll notice about our hidden hitch, or our draw type, which again are the same hitch versus our Curt, is that they're going to have a bracket that's been welded on here, that allows for pretty easy wiring connection. There's going to be three pre-drilled holes in that bracket to allow us to mount any kind of wiring that we'd want right up to it. Another thing that I noticed different, the size of our safety chain connection loops are quite a bit bigger on the hidden hitch and the draw type, versus the Curt.
