any recommendations for an aftermarket trailer hitch to put on a V6 Laredo X
 
I didnt take delivery with the tow groups since all of the ones available at the time were packaged with other options I didnt want, or were missing options I wanted. Nonetheless, I think I regret not springing for the basic tow package. I don't plan on towing anything heavy - I'm just considering getting the bike rack that connects to the hitch, where bikes would be the heaviest items. (I'd rather but the bikes on the back than mounting to the roof) Any suggestions, opinions, or experiences would be of great help. Thanks

I would have the dealer install the factory hitch. You could do it yourself as well.

That comes with the factory bezel as well. You could get a hidden hitch or a Uhaul hitch or any aftermarket one, but in my opinion they don't look very good compared to the OEM type.

Mine didn't have the ttow package either. I had the dealership throw it in the deal. The MOPAR tow equipment can be added and looks the same as the factory. Took about 2 hours for them to install.

Do they add the tow/haul button when the dealer installs it? Or does it still come installed from the factory?

I had the hitch installed at the dealer, but a tow/haul button was not included. Hitch looks 'factory installed' though.

No tow/haul button.

OP has a V6 so no 'Tow/Haul' button comes with that powertrain anyway.

Definitely go with the Mopar hitch.

I wanted the tow package from the factory as well, but they just don't include it for the Laredo.
