Wanting to buy a hitch.

I want to buy a hitch receiver. I was wondering what would be a good one to look at.. Are the reese hitches any good? Are they hard to install? Any other kinds I should look at? I don't imagine I will be towing any crazy heavy things.

Hidden Hitch definitely looks the best IMO.

Install depends on what your bolts look like underneath. It took Justin(RangerJustin) and myself a good hour or so just to get the damn bolts unscrewed due to the caked on mud and such underneath. More or less a basic bolt on other then that

it's a hitch. there aren't really any bad ones really....it's a friggin' hitch! lol.


I'd prefer a Class 3/4, obviously a 2" insert hitch. I'd prefer mounting mounts below AND on the side of the frame. BTW, i have a factory ford hitch that i purchased from a junkyard for $50.

If your truck is already low to the ground, I would avoid getting one like mine. Turns out to have NO clearance.
