It takes a lot more than just a hitch to get you and your vehicle on the road to adventure. The receiver is just the first component necessary to hook-up and be on your way. Additional components required to tow safely and effectively include hitch balls, Couplers, ball mounts, pins, clips, safety chains, tow bars, and brake controller units.
In addition to selecting the proper hitch, always use towing system components with capacity ratings equal to or greater than the hitch capacity rating. Do your homework and insist on expert installation and quality parts such as Draw-tite, Valley, Curt, B&W, Reese,masterlock, trimax, and tow ready.
