I was a couple miles from the Ford delear, so stopped by after I got off the deal trap of a highway I was on and they confired the trailer hitch was fine. Fewwwwwwwww... Now I just need to have the entire pumber replaced next week, but still will have new TT parked at home.
On many newer Ford trucks (at least the F150s), the bumper is actually attached to the factory receiver hitch. If the bumper is damaged, so may be the receiver hitch. Make sure the hitch is checked out carefully by someone that knows what they are doing.
I got rear ended recently, and there was no apparent damage except to my bargman plug, as apparently most of the impact was absorbed by the hitch. There was no visible damage evident to the hitch, but I still had that replaced as a precaution. The body shop put that on the estimate, and the at-fault insurance company footed the bill.
