Nice. Congrats.

What are your trailer options? You may want to budget for a hitch kit instead of that bumper ball. ;)

If your getting a 6 x 12, I suggest you get a 4 foot side ramp, check out my post if your not sure what I am talking about, you won't regret it

Very nice!

What were you using before that truck?

What made you decide to go with the full size vs a smaller truck?

I would base my hitch choice based on the weight of trailer I would be pulling.

I don't know what the rating is on your bumper hitch but with a small enough trailer, that could get you started.

Otherwise, you can bolt on a class III hitch or so and it should be pretty cheap.
