Recommend a good trailer hitch please

I have a 2007 4x4 with no trailer hitch. What is the hive's recommendation for which 2" Class III hitch and where to buy it? Money is not a big object, I could go $200 if necessary.

Go to car-parts.com and search for hitches in your local junk yard. Quick search for me showed most around 50 bucks.

Hidden Hitch, Curt and Draw-Tite are all good brands.

My old man had a draw tite on his F150 and my uncle had a reese who knows.

My take is this:

Ford dispatches their trucks to the dealers, the hitch companies sell in bulk to dealers, they install em as per Ford's spec's per the model truck, sticker price goes up slightly, guy buys his truck knowing it has a hitch, and everyone walks away happy.
