    I am interested in the valley hitch but would like to see one installed before I buy, if anyone has any pictures of the valley or any other hitches please post them. I like the oem look but don’t feel like spending that much.

    I've got a Valley hitch although I bought the hitch from U-Haul. I believe they make them for U-Haul as it had the U-Haul stickers on the hitch itself but the UPS shipping label on the hitch was from Valley.

    I'll get some pics in a few. I really like it though. Looks good and the install only took about 20 minutes (no loosening the bumper like some other hitches).

    Great pics, I won't bother posting mine as they're about the same.

    If you don't want to glue the plugs back in place I took a Dremel to mine and cut out the + shaped piece of plastic underneath so that there was clearance for the bolt head.

    Thanks for the pics, I think the Valley would look the closest to the factory hitch. Anyone have any other brands they would like to show off?

    There's too much snow out there to get a picture right now, but I ordered a Valley V82790 hitch and a Valley 30127 Wiring Connector from etrailer.com. for my 2009 2.7L 2WD Access Cab. It is solidly made and was a perfect fit. The directions were straightforward and easy to follow. The hitch took less than 1/2 hour and the wiring - because I got picky with adding some wire covering - took 45 minutes. I would definitely recommend both etrailer.com and Valley.
    Hitch and harness cost $179.90 total.

    Lots of good hitches out there. No need for one specific brand. Check the web for the best deals. Don't get caught paying more than needed.

    I have Hidden Hitch & paid $130 installed a few years ago.

    I paid $35 for the wiring harness from the dealer & installed it myself in about 10 minutes.

    Here is one for the 07-09 for $129.
