There are some businesses out there that can custom build receivers for WDH on uni-bodies but it is a specialized field and not something a "Do it yourselfer" is likely to attempt. With a body on frame on the other hand a person can usually upgrade receivers with relative ease on their own.
Yes. I just found this out during a discussion on a Toyota 4Runner. I was surprised that some manufacturers state that you should NOT use a WDH. I am in the process of trying to figure out if a Ford Explorer with a tow package will NOT accept a WDH. I need to find one and see what the manual says. I cannot believe the Ford website is so vague on stuff like this. Either that or I cannot find it.
The Tahoe might just be the way to go. They just cost so freaking much.
