    your hitch is the assembly you already circled. Here is a pic of what a hitch looks like without the truck...Note: this may not be exactly like yours but you get the picture.

    Ha Ha, yeah. You should also tear off the dealers sticker their on the lower left. No sense in giving them advertising that you probably paid for. Do it before it "sets in" :D

    Don't use the holes on the side of the receiver to pull someone. If you want to pull someone safely you'll need a hook to go into the reciever. As someone stated earlier the holes are designed for safety chains. You are supposed to cross the chains under the tongue of the trailer so that if the trailer detaches itself from the ball it's still going to be attached to your truck until you pull off to the side of the road.

    For typical trailers you insert the hitch and ball into the reciever. Depending on your trailer you need the right drop or rise on the hitch and the correct size ball to fit the coupler on the trailer.
