    If you want Class IV, your best option is OEM in my opinion. I have a Hidden Hitch and it's hidden like you mentioned you were looking for, but it's only Class III.

    :thumbsup: That exactly what I did. The hidden hitch looks great! Unless your truck came with all the factory towing stuff ie: tranny cooler, or you plan on adding it, then you won't need the class IV anyway.

    Just put a curt hitch on my 2013. I like it. Got it at summit. 134.00 shipped I think. Can't remember. Had a valley on my 2008 and 2013. I like the way the curt mounts better. It does not mount to the bumper. You can see the bolts and they got rusty.

    Thanks for the inputs! I mostly will be pulling a 18' bass boat or a trailer with a couple 4 wheelers on it so I should be good with a class III hitch. I have already put the transmission oil cooler on it.
