Default Towing Package on 2010

I have the Lonestar/Big Horn edition which comes with the Towing Package. The trailer hitch is under the truck but there is no receiver for it am I missing something?

I don't think that the receiver hitch portion comes with the truck, at least I've never gotten one with a new truck.

I believe that it's something that you must purchase separately. I'm sure the dealer would be delighted to sell you one, though you can get the same thing at your local auto parts store or WallyWorld for less $$$$

It does not come with the package, buy one. Be sure to check what you buy, some are solid and others are no more than square tubing. You will get what you pay for.

The ball mount is not included most likely

Be glad its not like the Journey towing package that only includes the under hood stuff and not the hitch. (Or so I'm told)

Is there a bolt on to the receiver to work with the hitch?

From looking underneath I see a couple holes for a bolt on, but its almost flush with the bumper and the bumper curls up to it.

I beg to differ regarding the receiver. The receiver is part of the tow package, the ball mount is not. You must buy the ball mount.

I'm sorry, this is what i meant

There should be the attachment point on the back of the truck "receiver"



There probably won't be a ball or ball mount

Oh man, that is part of the tow package. I called a dealer in the states just now and they said it comes with the reciever. If they told you, that you have the tow package you might want to go back and get the receiver. You can buy aftermarket that will bolt to the holes that are there on the frame. It might hang lower then the pics of above. I think you can actually buy the one that comes with the tow package and it will look factory now-a-days..

IMO, if they told you it had a the package then you are owed that missing part. Just my .02 though. Mine has the tow package and that is listed as part of it.
