do it yourself. Seriously if you have a few hand tools ( 1/2 dr ratcher and sockets and maybe a few wrenches ) you can do it yourself and save alot.

Also some of the U-haul will install their hitch for free ifyou buy it new. Try the U-hual center on Broward Blvd about 1.5mile west of I95 on the south side of the street.

I got mine from 4wheelparts (they have a website if they don't have a store locally) pretty cheap and did it myself. Class V and it was about $120 IIRC. When I bought it, they told me it would be a few days before it got to their store, unless I wanted to go by the warehouse to pick it up. 15 minutes later I pull into the warehouse parking lot, and my hitch is sitting on the dock waiting for me. Sign a paper stating that I had picked it up and was on my way. (this was the end of the day too, and they were closing up shop) Good company to work with.

Then call around looking for an independent trailer hitch/welding shop. Some one of them should fix you right up for not a lot of money. The hitch itself will set you back no matter who puts it on.

I did my own, but I've got time and tools. Good luck.

Most trucks should already have something there for the electric. An adparter should be all you need, if anything.
