Default 3500HD Receiver

I'm hoping someone can save me a trip to the dealer to take some measurements.

Can someone tell me the size of the opening on your factory bumper receiver? I've got a new Denali 3500HD on order and I want to make sure that my equalizer hitch will work in the new truck or if I need to get something different.

Thanks

It should be a 2 1/2. I believe all GM trucks HD wise 11 and up come with 2 1/2.

Thanks ... I'll have to measure my hitch. Something tells me that my F350 only had a 2" receiver.

I also heard or read somewhere that GM sends a sleeve so that you can use a 2" hitch in the receiver. Is this true?

Really? My friend and his dad has both bought new trucks this year and theirs came with them, they may have paid for them with the truck but they never mentioned that, because tony hauled my truck to get the trans done and we talked about the bigger hitch compared to mine and the adapter he hated because of the slop, he welded his to his 2" hitch.

Maybe I'll suggest welding the hitch to him...I really don't understand the options on these trucks the truck appears to have every option inc sunroof & a/c in the seats but doesn't have tow mirrors.Another guy we know has the same truck w/tow mirrors that have the LED marker/turn on them...just not a big fan of those small mirrors on that truck...they just look out of place

Thanks for all the information. I'll see if I can get a 2.5" adjustable shank from equalizer. I'm a little concerned about the slop experienced with the adaptor.
