    I am looking for a hitch for my 1999 GMC Diesel, JC Whitney has a V5 monster for $159, seems like the best deal. Anyone ever bought their hitches?

    JC Whitney seems like a good place to buy Lighted (L.E.D. of course) and chrome plated muffler bearings with leather tassles but not sure if I would buy something like a hitch from them.. Seems like some friends have bought some stuff from there and the quality of the metal is a bit sub-standard. One of those do-hickeys that go into a trailer hitch to haul a little cargo on broke under it's own weight for example.. Good ole Mexican steel. Could have been an isolated incident though. I good class 3 or class 4 hitch from draw tight or U-haul is not much more.

    I have a 'Hidden Hitch' that came from J.C. Whitney...
    very happy with it. Two trucks strapped together pulling sideways on a chain looped through the hitch didn't hurt it /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif
