Not sure who you're replying to...?
I didn't mean to scare anyone or make it seem like aftermarket hitches are ALL bad...I've just seen first hand what can happen when people slap an aftermarket hitch on a vehicle without other towing equipment, and then get online and Google "towing capactiy of (insert vehicle make/model)" and pick the biggest number they see. That is one of the first things they will look at when you cook your engine/tranny and file a warranty claim. If the vehicle build sheet doesn't have any mention of a towing package, transmission cooler, hitch, etc. and they put that vehicle on the lift and see a 2" hitch on that vehicle, it is a red flag. U-Haul will gladly sell and install a hitch on your vehicle, but will NOT tell you what the repercussions may be. I just want others who are following this and those that may read this in the weeks, months and years to come to make an informed decision if faced with a similar situation. A 12 or 14 foot aluminum boat can be towed with *almost* any vehicle, yes...but you go much bigger than that or get into a deep-v with a 4-stroke outboard and gear and you could be asking for trouble with slapping an aftermarket hitch on just any vehicle, especially one with a 4 cylinder and a unibody frame. Good luck in your vehicle/boat searches and tight lines!
