Yes, went OEM. I got the dealer to install it, supposedly at cost for parts and labor. Had them do a couple other things all at the same time so I don't remember the exact amount they charged for it but I know there's some BS $100 charge to "activate" it in the computer which you can't get out of no matter who installs.
Like I mentioned, all this was negotiated at my time of purchase since I knew I needed the hitch for my boat. Personally, I just think the OEM hitch looks so much better than any of the aftermarket solutions I've seen since it's completely integrated into the bumper and isn't that much more expensive in the grand scheme of things.
