    I am going to buy a hitch soon , and I would like to see some options of what is available.

    I have always wanted a tubular hidden hitch style hitch. Prefer class III 2".

    If you ordered online where did you get it?

    Thanks,
    Dave

    JC Whitney or Autoanything, I can't remember where I bought from but it was one of those 2. I've got a Hidden Hitch class 3. I don't have any good picture of it though, there are a couple in my gallery that have it at the bottom corner but the receiver was never a focal point for me :D

    Overall, I like it, it tucks up nicely under the bumper and was very easy to install.

    Looks like the Curt might be a good choice. I won't order from JC whitney, once you are on their mailing list you get junk mail every day!

    The other 2 sites look good.

    FWIW, they are a lot better than they used to be (JCWhitney). I've ordered plenty of stuff from them and only get a catalog once a year sent to me. Other than that, I don't hear anything from them. I agree though, they used to be horrible and just flood you with junk mail! I can completely understand your hesitation with them!

    Thanks for the comment. The air hose attaches to the valve stem on the spare tire and simplifies things when I check/add air to my tires each month.
