Carol,
You asked for a review, here it
is:
1. Like so many others, my package arrived with holes and in terrible condition.
2. Inspecting the contents, the ears on the crossbar were bent and denuded of powder coating.
3. The plastic bags, overloaded with hardware, were torn and I will have to inventory parts to assure that all are there.
4. It looks like I will have to bend the ears back into place so the crossbar will fit between the frame rail mounts correctly. This is likely to remove more powder coating.
5. I will be installing the hitch shortly and will contact you if there are parts missing.
Shipping 70 pounds of fabricated steel in a single sided cardboard box without packing materials and without strapping is ludricrous. $3 of styrofoam block and $1 of strapping would have saved me time I will now have to spend to straighten the pieces for proper fitment. I hope you and your company are making loads of money because you clearly care nothing for your customers. The only question remaining is what you intend to do about these problems in the future.
Please do not send me a simpering apology filled with disingenuous statements or blame placed on others. Put your shipping team to work to design and package these shipments so that upon arrival at your customers' location they are intact and undamaged:
1. Double sided cardboard box.
2. Styrofoam sheets top and bottom.
3. Styrofoam blocks either side of crossbar limiting movement with pockets for hardware.
4. Styrofoam endcaps in the box.
5. Nylon strapping pulled tight around the sides and end of box.
What is better?
1. $5 less profit?
2. Unhappy customers?
These are decisions for your management team.

I'm sorry to see that your hitch has received some scratches on it due to shipping. This does tend to happen and when it does, we recommend using a Rust-oleum type paint to cover up any scratches and prevent corrosion in the future during use. I have a link below for your reference. I have also sent this information over to our Customer Service Department for them to get into contact with you.

Don't recommend.

It did not fit my
truck as described, I have a 79 GMC pickup, and it left a 1"+ gap between the receiver and the frame on the most inside holes.

On top of that the box arrived all messed up, no hardware, the receiver is pretty strong, but was all scratched out.



by:
1987 GMC C/K Series Pickup

Great company, for sure!! Bought this to install on my recently acquired 1987 GMC crew cab dually, to be used as a moving and tow rig to trailer my cars south. Installation was straight forward, a bit of drilling and rivet removal, which I was prepared for. Took a bit of time, as you may guess, but I was definitely able to skip the gym today because of it. Loses one star for chipping paint on the side pieces, I'll need to paint to prevent corrosion. Also, one tab on the crossbar was bent, so I had to straighten it to ensure the bolts torque specs were true. I'm very confident it will be up to the task at hand.

This thing is super beafy. It's fairly easy to install. I had to drill all 6 holes. I installed this on a 2013 Ford F53 Winnebago 35B. Definitely worth the upgrade.

First one got lost in shipment, second one arrived last night. I have not installed it as of yet. It was received damaged.
Maybe a little better packing would help.

Product worked great



by:

The hitch looks well-made and very heavy duty my poor rating comes from the poor packaging and the hitch was damaged in transit. The end of the crossbar was sticking out of the box when it was delivered to my house there was not adequate packing in there to keep everything stabilized and there are many places where the paint is chipped off . The bracket on one end of the crossbar is bent due to the poor packaging and the fact that it came out of the box . I am very disappointed .

I hate to hear that your hitch came scratched! I recommend to touch it up with a rust prevention spray paint. I sent our information to customer service and they should be reaching out soon.

2013 Ram 3500

Does fit my 97 3500 GMC cab and chassis with the second fuel tank, as promised. Unfortunately, it DOES NOT fit with my second fuel tank armor plate, which had to be removed for installation. I will do some cutting and hopefully be able to bolt it back up with 4 of the 6 bolts, which will be better than nothing.

This is a better hitch for a truck that is lifted a bit higher than mine, as I used the top-most holes for the cross member, and the side fins hang down a clownish amount. Hopefully it will not be a problem in my frequent off road uses. Unloaded, the fins are 13 1/2 inches off the ground.

A very beefy and solid thing, this should tow whatever I need it to, and in the end, function over form. Maybe I will work on a custom rear bumper that will help to hide it some.

The side plates hit the ground when I would go over curbs, or try to back up a hill. It was a small problem, but still a problem. I sold the truck to someone who was going to OTR with it, and he loved it.

I don't want to discourage anyone from buying this hitch. That said, I probably shouldn't go into great detail, as to how I use it. I replaced a class III hitch on my motorhome, to carry a 700 pound motorcycle on a carrier. It it designed to fit 36 inch frames, but simply reversing the brackets, it now fits a 42 inch motorhome frame. Nuff said. It does the job very well.



by:
1987 Chevrolet C/K Series Pickup

Hitch came to me in good condition and looks very well built. However, I purchased this for a 1987 Chevrolet dually and it is not a fit for my truck. The first issue I found is with the spare tire. The side brackets are so deep there is no way to get around them to relocate the spare, they simply hang down too far. The hitch is at a good height in the uppermost holes. I attempted to install anyway only to find the center holes directly under a crossmember that would not allow space for a bolt to drop in. Overall looks to be a quality product for whatever its intended purpose just not workable on my square body dually. An expensive paperweight.



by:
2018 Ford F-350 Super Duty

The hitch is doing every thing I need it to do. The one problem that I had with it was. I was told it would fit a F-350 2018. With the mounting we had to drop the fuel tank, to get at the rear bolts. Also we had to add a 1/4" plate to both ends of the hitch, evidently the 2017 frame is a half inch narrower then the 2018 model. Once we did that everything went together with out any problems.



by:
Chevrolet

After years of comparison I bought this hitch for my US Army 1986 Chevy CUCV M1028 pickup. It had the right dimensions for simple mods to fit the truck, for which no commercial hitch will fit. We had to cut an L notch on both sides of the upright, to clear the shock mount. But there is plenty of steel there. By removing some of the bumper bracket, I was able to retain the bumper mount pieces, less 2.



by:

Great product. Heavy duty. I had to drill 4 holes in frame. Looks good. 1987 Chevy V20 4wd 3/4 ton.



by:
1969 Chevrolet C/K Series Pickup

This hitch is being used on a custom 1969 Chevy C50 pickup truck. I won't be using this truck to haul, it's only for show. It was easy to install, and it looks perfect on the frame. You can't have a truck this big without a big hitch on it.













by:

Excellant heavy product. It took a little fitting to the frame, only because this went on a military truck. Finished project is neat and will haul well

did you install this hitch on a m1008 cucv? if so did you need to cut one set of bumper brackets? trying to find a hitch that I dont have to hack up the stock cucv bumper brackets to install

I sent an email to the author to see if he has anything to add.


by:
1986 GMC C/K Series Pickup

This receiver is well made and was not too bad to install. It should be noted that it is more of a "universal" hitch in that it fits multiple vehicles. This does require drilling holes in your truck's frame, which is not a difficult job, but it's not a direct bolt-on hitch. I had to make provisions for my true dual exhaust which added some time to the install, but overall it took about 3 hours to remove my rear bumper, the old class III hitch, and install this one. I use my 1986 GMC C3500 to tow my 24' enclosed car hauler.



by:
1986 Chevrolet C/K Series Pickup

Instructions say you need a 9/16 drill bit to drill the holes for the hitch. In all reality you need 11/16 inch to drill the holes in the frame to mount the hitch. I actually used a 3/4 drill bit to complete the install.



by:
1972 GMC C/K Series Pickup

Ordered a Class V hitch, controller and wiring and actually received earlier than expected. Great customer service, had looked at one hitch which I thought would work and after talking to customer service purchased another recommend hitch which was best suited to my application.

Great quality arrived fast, drilled 6 holes in the frame and bolted it place excellent fitment good instructions will outlast most trucks it's put on twice as thick as the frame of my 2500 Chevy



by:

I received the hitch as promised. I have not tried the installation as of today but I have no reason to say anything bad or good concerning the product. So should any more opinions be needed, send another request a week from today and I will answer and I will answer at that time.

Very heavy duty. Hardware kit was missing due to UPS. Called customer service and they shipped out a new hardware package right away. Great products and great customer service.

Check out the part # 41947. This hitch fits a 34 inch wide frame and has several height adjustments on the crosstube to allow to match what your vehicle would need.

  • Is there an Aftermarket Hitch Available for a 2005 F-150 With a Factory Hitch?
    The factory hitches that come on the 2005 Ford F-150 actually tie into the structure and stability of the bumper, so a custom fit aftermarket hitch will not be able to be used, unfortunately. From looking at the frame where an aftermarket hitch would attach, the Draw-Tite # 41947 will not be able to be used either. This is also designed to fit the F-350, F-450, and F-550 cab and chassis model truck so the frame width will also be quite different.

    Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 41947 is a custom fit hitch designed for specific vehicles and should not be used on any applications it was not designed for. The trucks it does fit on would have approximately 37 inch frames measured from outside to outside. We do have hitches that are meant for motor homes though. I have included a link to them for you. All of these hitches list the frame widths they will fit and the warranties will not be voided because they are made for your application.
