Looks like the Drawtight uses two bolts on each side instead of four like the factory unit & does not slide into the body channels. Dunno if a F*rd 150 front end will fold around the receiver as one did on mine.
Yes, Drawtite uses two bolts that are already on the frame. If OEM uses four, I believe you will have to drill those extra ones yourself. Those frame bolts are really tight. Use proper tools, I busted my shoulder labrum taking them out. It's rated 5K lbs. I went aftermarket because it's only for a bike rack. If I were to tow on a regular basis I would've gone OEM.
