I was forced to replace my stock trailer hitch on my 2001.(due to the welds falling apart). So instead of getting another stock hitch I bought the Reese Titan V. All I can say is holy heavy metal. This hitch is beefy and can handle rated loads. My trailers sometimes run over 12k+ and tongue weight is always overweight so I feel much better with the TITAN V. Has anybody else had there stock hitch fall apart? Does anybody else have the TITAN V?

The Titan V will not flex with 10k. It is solid as a rock. I don't use weight distribution either. I don't remember the exact price but it wasn't much more than stock. Only thing is...you will need to get new slide in. Or get an adapter. I got the Titan on both my trucks. I don't EVER want to see my trailer hitch break at the welds when I am towing 11k+. I tell you it was one of the scariest thing. With the Titan V I tow with confidence. My average pull is 11000lbs+ 500miles per day. If your tongue weight is lite and the trailer isn't that heavy than stock is ok...

Chevmeister,


Ok so your assumption is incorrect.



Lemme explain.


1. Titan V = receiver hitch (this bolts on in place of stock receiver)


2. Hitch bar = this has the ball on it and slides into receiver.


3. reducer sleeve = 2 1/2 to 2" sleeve that slides in the reciever so the hitch bar will fit.


4. On your truck now you have a 2" reciever hitch.


5. The Titan V is 2 1/2 receiver hitch.


6. So unless you get the titan 2 1/2 hitch bar you will need a reducer sleeve to work with your exsicting hitch bar.


If you looked at my truck at the convention you saw the Titan V with the titan 2 1/2 adjustable hitch bar that is 16" long. I do not use the reducer sleeve. That hitch bar is one heavy sucker.
