the only problem with the factory hitchs is they will break. A good friend owns a trailer repair shop here in Oklahoma and had a trailer to redo because the hitch broke, not the bolts or the drop part but the actual hitch where the drop slides in, not his first to see this happen on.

Yeah, but I believe he has the 8.1 w/ 465 lbs of torque. Not quite a diesel (duramax is 560???), but enough azz to move that pig!

that Titan does install closer to the bumper (frame height) on a Ford it seems.

I'm glad it came with good hardware. Though I feel the hardware bit is a good heads-up for everybody. Mine could have been 8's but not cad-plated, and not long enough to run bigger thicker backer plates and double nut.

again, if I was towing the next level in wieght/size, as you are Trout...I would most likely have chosen the Titan for twice the money.

but for the $$ I feel my needs are met quite well. Especially over the stock GM paperwieght.

I still like the idea of the crossmember running out through/well beyond the plates like they do on the XDR... quality welding work included.

Luv u 2 brudda...


BTW, can you believe the performance of that 496 353 of Robert's?
