Curt or Reese??

Trying to find a good front mount hitch receiver for my 04 Ranger XLT FX4. Summit carries only two, a Curt and a Reese. I know Reese is a good name, but I'm leaning toward the Curt because I like the loops on it better. Any suggestions or pros/cons of either one?

I bought a Class III Curt tube hitch on eBay (evil!) for about $120 shipped. I have never had a problem with it. It helped me move to my current location (130 miles each way, 2 trips) pulling an open 6x10 trailer with all my crap on it. I also towed a toro utility vehicle that same route without incident. If the Curt is cheaper I say go with the Curt.

That was a rear hitch, not a front mount. The quality seems good. I still vote for Curt.

I should probably read these threads more carefully, lol.

Both are good choices.
