OEM hitch mount pics?

Hey everyone- can you snap some pics of the oem hitch mount from a few different angles? Just trying to get an idea of it's depth and some aftermarket bumper ideas.

Thanks!

Re: OEM hitch mount pics?

You the man JosSchmoe - I was trying to get an idea of how far the receiver sticks out and if a "receiver cover" trim would be possible. Thinking not so much.

Re: OEM hitch mount pics?

have them look up the labor on just the hitch install by the part number of the hitch, it was 1.2 hours(which really took them like 3) and i was quoted 89.99. so like 90/hr.

i have the hemi so the prewire was just there.

Picked up the hitch at
oepartsmegastore.com

Re: OEM hitch mount pics?

My dealer wants 639.
Hitch - 233
Harness - 67
Bumper - 129 (They prefer not to cut the bumper so they are ordering a new one)
Labor - 210
Total: 639 before tax

While that sounds perfectly reasonable I would tell them to not order a new bumper, just cut the old one. If they screw it up THEN order a new bumper cover.

Re: OEM hitch mount pics?

Also I guess they are quoting 3 hrs of work. I got a quote from another dealer that would just cut it out. I would assume if they screw it up they would be responsible for replacing the cover.
