Congrats on the truck! That would make life super duty
We love our Hensley Arrow hitch, but folks like the ProPride, too! I'm sure either would be good. I've only had the Hensley so can't compare. Be sure to get one or the other, and don't settle for simple or cheap. You won't be happy in the long run. The other peace-of-mind-maker is a tire pressure monitoring system [tpms]. We love our Doran, and there are others out there, which tells me the pressure of each tire on The Otter right on the dash.

We stop often, feel the tires and hubs for heat, and pray we don't have a tread delamination tearing up our aluminum.

Good choice, gheuer. That's the rig I have (my Chev is an '04 and has been a joy). 120k miles, mostly towing, and just perfect.

Thanks for the encouragement, Pat. Ours is/will be a 2008. Waiting for it to be shipped up from Nashville to Charlottesville for pick up.
