With the bed off, it was much easier to install this Valley receiver hitch since it required some drilling. It's rated at 7,500 pounds without weight distributing, which should be sufficient for this pickup's duties, and it also serves as a rear bumper. Notice the weird exhaust system with one side being 2 1/4 inches and the other 2 1/2.
