Receiver Hitch?

Has anyone tried to use a newer model 2-1/2" receiver hitch on an older truck? I have an 07 classic and want to upgrade to a 2-1/2" hitch. All the info I have found say they use an aftermarket like the Curt, but they hang down a couple inches from the bumper and I don't like that.

I had a Reese 2.5" on my 2004.5, Reese either labeled it as the "titan" or "Tow beast" depending on the ad. It basically fit as the factory receiver did. Just a better receiver than the factory one back then.
