Looking for a heavy duty trailer hitch, 6k+ lb rating

I'm looking to add a hitch to a 2018 Grand limited by OEM is on huge backorder. All aftermarket ones I see are rated to 5,000lbs and my boat is right at 5,000.

Is anyone aware of another hitch besides OEM for 6k+rating? A lead on OEM? Have a take off they'll sell?

Class III but all seem to be rated at 6000 pounds, more with a WDH..... https://www.etrailer.com/hitch-2018_...d+Cherokee.htm

That ebay listing probably doesn't include the bezel, hence it fits both Durangos and WK2s. Its not an accessory kit, simply the replacement hitch part (no trim no connectors, no bolts). The numbers on the stickers almost never match the catalog part numbers... supply chain management or something.

Figuring they are all made in China, I'm trying the eBay knockoff despite my better judgement. If quality looks terrible I'll deal with it then, or use the trim and replace the hitch.

The aftermarket just look terrible to me under the bumper.

+1 on etrailer...this is not something you want to cut corners on. Have an adjustable Gen-Y on my truck and adjustable aluminum Fastway on the Jeep. Both are massive and over engineered, just the way I like it.
