Ditto here, although 2017 F450, easy to remove by myself

one thing to consider. If you get a factory installed hitch when truck is purchased there is a complete warranty through dealer. my ram 20k broke and dealer just pit in a new one.

The Ford hitch is made by Reese but way overpriced. I sell my customers B&W Companions for their puck system. Even without the puck system.

Yeah, you can get the same Reese hitch cheaper by searching on line.
