Default Hitch for 03 Stepside?????

So What's the deal? I was looking at the Reese hitch and it says that it's not for the 98-05 flareside. Are flareside and stepside the same?

Any stepsides out there with a hitch? What did you use? Pics?

I was thinking that the frames are basically the same. I need to hit the jy.

Paul....frames are EXACTLY THE SAME. I've read and heard of stupid things like they won't fit a stepside and they won't fit because you have a step bumper...

it's all garbage. It's gotta come from a 98+ because 98+'s very rear frame rails are different.

Got mine for $50 at the same JY that screwed you over. lol.
