Quick question about tow hitch

Hey all,
I am probably buying a 03 Ford Ranger FX4 LII this weekend, but I had quick question about the tow set-up on it. If you look at this picture, you can see its all rusted down below. Most of the Rangers I've seen don't have this set-up, they just have a ball hitch on the bumper. Is this an aftermarket set-up? If so, should I keep it on there, and just paint it black to keep it fresh looking?

Almost everyone has that setup. It came from the factory like that. Just paint it black
