You can't go wrong with Curt. for a receiver. I used the 15211 on mine and paid $314 delivered and no tax. Sounds like you got a deal.
Quality is tops and fit on my 07 Chevy was perfect. I have dual exhaust and it's a dually too. So I had to really make sure the fit was right on the money. I had no problems.
Just make sure you buy the one made for your truck model and year and not a universal. I did and because of that didn't need to make any adjustments or drill any holes.
Good luck!

I looked at the Curt #15512, but it didn't have the 2" drop and I didn't want to swap out the Hensley hitch bar, so I went with the #15513 which is closer to the height and setup of my existing GM factory hitch.

Well, looks like you did the best thing. And as far as what you paid you made out great. Let us know how it all worked out. I was really surprised how well the thing was painted and the quality of the paint. Looks bullit proof.

Got the hitch replaced today before the heat got too high! It took longer to figure out how to deal with the electrical socket than to install the hitch. We found more broken welds after we removed the GM hitch. The Curt Mfg hitch is so much better than the factory GM one.
