Dodge hitch receiver "back ordered"

I've noticed that for the last few months, the Dodge hitch receiver is "back ordered) nationwide. Is there some kind of problem with it?

I'm talking about the one that hooks under the bumper http://www.mopardodge.com/accessories/dodgeram/receiver.htm

I have the 2009 RAM 1500 w/ Class 4 Trailer Hitch Receiver, it was on the Ram when i bought it new

There are only a few good hitch receiver brands & here are a couple of them
DRAW-TITE, REESE, & CURT. HIDDEN HITCH is also good

That comment about there being a nationwide shortage sounds kind of fishy. I know the U-Haul dealer down the highway from me has two on the shelf from Reese right now. And the truck accessory store a 1/4 mile away has a Draw-Tite in stock. That one in the first post shows the hitch without WDH rated at 5000 pounds with a 500 pound hitch weight. My Draw-Tite model of that same hitch design is rated at 6000 pounds with a 600 pound hitch weight. Not a great deal of difference, but my hitch was also $20 cheaper.

If I had the choice, I wouldn't buy the factory hitch anyhow. I do not like the round tube design after having twisted the same design on my Chevy. get a good aftermarket
