Uhaul vs. Dealer for Hitch Install

I am looking to attach a trailer hitch to my 2014 Grand Cherokee Limited RWD. I was told that it is already prewired for a trailer hitch.

I contacted both Uhaul and my local dealership. Uhaul quoted me $270 for hitch, wiring, and install. The dealership quoted me $241 for just the hitch and than another $271 for installation.

My two concerns are:

1) Appearance - With the Uhaul hitch, will it look like a uhaul job (blatently an aftermarket accessaory) or will it look as though it comes from the dealership.

2) Resale Value - Is one option better than another in terms of resale value or even warranty?

Any insight or if anyone has any photos of Uhaul trailer hitches on their '14 Grand Cherokee I would greatly appreciate it!

I've been going through the same questions about a hitch. I'm having the OEM hitch installed Monday, along with the black Mopar front tow hooks, on my 2014 GC Limited. Looked at other options, but just wanted a clean look, and the dealer worked with me on the labor pricing, since I had recently bought the car there. If they charge shop rate, the installation price is quite a bit higher, but they know it doesn't really take that long. Sometimes if it is the dealer you bought the vehicle from, they cut you a break.
