The Reese Elite 25K is built like a tank. If I had to do it over, this is probably what I would get. I bought the B&W/Companion hitch because my truck did not come with the factory mounts and I thought the B&W would be easier. It still required lifting one side of the bed, and I'm not very happy with the marginal materials the Companion is built with. It has sagged at the draw-down bolt and splayed at the clamp bolts and NO I am NOT over-torquing it. The B&W designed for the factory mount may be a better product, but I've yet to see one in person. They came out just after I bought my truck. I may yet buy the Ford factory mount kit and pull the bed to install it.
