Fit perfectly onto our truck and installation was easy. I am not sure if this was an issue with specifically our truck but the two holes for the middle mount positions had to be drilled to make them larger to accept the provided bolts. Have been hauling all sorts of stuff since receiving and has done great. The only negative I have on the receiver is that the loops for the chains slightly interfere with the pin for the hitch. I need to lift the pin to get it out of the way to attach the chains. Overall it does a great job, easy to install, and was a great price. 613108

Prompt delivery. Exactly as described. Everything needed for installation with precise instructions. Perfect fit and receiver is flush with bumper. Truck is rated for 5000 lbs, but will only be used for 3000 lb boat or small utility trailer. Thanks again, you guys are great. 302633


I have towed boat and utility trailers 500 miles and have had no problems.

Everything was in the kit like they described it. Installation was very easy. Agree with the other gentleman one grounding bolt was in the way but very simple to move. Would recommend this product to everyone. 652674
