Class of hitch
Back in august I bought a 99 GMC Sierra. When I bought it i didn't realize that it was the p.o. has put a hitch on it from a suburban ( thats what the truck place told me). It doesn't have the bumper bolts (for lack of better description) that the hitch bolts to the bumper via a V shaped bracket. If you have seen a 1/2 ton GM truck, you'd know what I mean. I'm not confident in loading my jeep up on a trailer and pull it with the truck with the hitch that is on the truck.
What I am wondering, is what class hitch have others put on 1/2 ton trucks? Heres some quick numbers.
600 Pound Tongue Weight
6000 Pound Towing
1000 Pound Tongue Weight
10000 Pound Towing
1200 Pound Tongue Weight
12000 Pound Towing
1500 Pound Tongue Weight
15000 Pound Towing
Initial thought is go big or go home... Class V, but I am also trying to be economically conscious also. Realistically the heaviest thing I am going to put on it that I can think of is most likely my jeep, and it is only a 1/2 ton with a 5.3 and 4:10 gears.
