New hitch

Factory bumper hitch showing quite a bit of corrosion so I think it's time to replace

Looking at the draw tite 4194 any suggestions or other recommendations?

Did you mean 41944, not 4194?

If so, looks like it will do the job.

Curt also makes a very nice square tube hitch. I replaced our '10-1500 factory tin can with one. Night and day difference!

I put a Curt 15302 class 5 hitch on my truck earlier this year. Have towed once with it. It is very solid so no more flex.

Here is a couple pics showing the difference between the tin can factory hitch off our '10 Chevy 1500 and the Curt I replaced it with. The factory round tube hitch was actually "winding up"/twisting when latching up the wd bars. No issues with the Curt.





When setting the factory hitch down on the cement, it sounded just like a tin can. Setting the Curt down resulted in a dull thud. Weight was maybe 20lbs or so vs I think the Curt was almost 70lbs...
