Re: reese style hitch
How old is it?
What class? I, II, III?
Is it a 2"?
How long has it been on that truck?
If it is a bolt on hitch that has been welded on, leave it alone.
If you can get it off, take it off, clean it, inspect it and find out what it really is.
Check for rust, inside and out and if you have any doubt at all about its integrity, cut it up and recycle it.
My two cents...which is worth ?
