I bought a 13033 Curt hitch from Ebay seller hoping that Curt had just changed to a bolt together design later in production for shipping/manufacturing expenses. No go though. It wouldn't quite clear the under bumper reinforcement bar. However........If you did a body lift and lifted the bumper accordingly this hitch would likely line up nicely with a 3 inch lift. and its a nice heavily built mother with excellent powdercoating for cheap!!

Maybe they changed, I got a Curt hitch off e-bay, bolted up just fine, truck is stock. It was the bolt together one, not the one piece.

Very easy to install, no need to remove bolts for the bumper like some other ones.

The hitch you got was one piece?

yea I kept reading about how much the S/T was like Ex.s. this is one area that definitely is different. yes the one I got was a welded 1 piece unit. It was actually a misrepresentation in the Ebay ad and the Co. is making it good. I'm going with a Hidden Hitch welded unit. I didn't want a bolt together unit down here due to salt air corrosion. Like I said I was very impressed with the powder coating on the Curt though.

I believe CURT hitches was bought out, and are now made here in Humboldt, Ks.

I think this company now owns them

www.turnoverball.com

They have a 60,000 sq ft powder coating line there. I'm jealous
