My truck for whatever reason did not come with a reciever hitch, but rumor was they still came with a harness, is this it, says delphi on the plug cover and has remarks like rturn and lturn etc..back up and whatnot.
Mine was ordered without it by the dealer I guess. Get this, Brand new hitch from GM, plus receptacle and adapter, 140 bucks, no drilling, and got 15 percent off since I just got the truck, so 127 out the door after taxes, cheaper than the option to get it on the truck stock I think..haha
is it a piece of crap? It would cost me about 220 to get set up with a valley hitch that i am not even sure would fit 100 percent including making something to fit the receptacle.Edited by: Wickedsprint
Some might say they are crap, but haven't had any problems with mine. There was a thread somewhere on this board about people going to a class VI hitch, which I believe has a 2 1/2 inch receiver. They have a heavier load rating. You then either need new drawbars or have to have an adapter.
I don't know why dealers order them for the lot without a hitch anyway. From time to time my dealer has them on the lot with no hitch. The sales manager tells me that is because some people don't need a hitch because they have a 5th wheel. I think it stinks not to put a hitch on it. Just because you are towing a 5th wheel, doesn't mean you might never have a need to tow any other kind of trailer at a future date. I think a hitch should be standard equipment on all 2500HD and 3500 models.
