Look for the TITAN receiver hitches. Yes the split weight is without/with the distribution arms. The true TITAN hitches are 2.5x2.5 slots there is an adaptor that can be purchased to reduce so you can use a 2" sleeve drop. Also check the max weight of the ball as well some have lower ratings than others, will be stamped on top of the ball. Also the shanks will be different in diameter as well.

Don't forget that the receiver inserts come in different weight ratings. The one I use with my Class V hitch is solid steel, not the hollow 2x2" tubing. Steve

This has come up before.

BINGO!!! The F-350's come with the same hitch the cheap azz mofo's. I made the dealer buy me a new hitch as the salesman told me it was a Class 5. Ford does not make one so they had to get me a aftermarket hitch.
