Curt Brand Trailer Hitch?

I see a lot of people are using he Draw Tite brand aftermarket trailer hitch but has anybody seen a Curt brand hitch installed? I am leaning towards the aftermarket hitch to pull our boat during the summer and just removing it in the off season. The Curt hitch uses round tubing and look a little more modern.

Re: Curt Brand Trailer Hitch?

I believe that hangs below the rear bumper. If you are going through the effort, why not install the factory hitch and wiring. Looks cleaner and you don't lose ground clearance in the rear. And why would you even want to take it on and off every spring and fall???

Stick to the Mopar hitch. It's a must more professional, factory look. Those aftermarket hitches are so ugly!

And the built-in 7/4 pin dual plug on the factory hitch is an added plus. Makes for a very clean installation.
