Sweet! You could insert a hitchiker, two coolers and a big bundle of campfire wood.
I just have two easy questions and one harder one - 1) quanta costa? 2) I think there has been a discussion that 00s and 01s front suspension allows easy front hitch installation (bolts are right there) but this may be cheaper/easier, and 3) I think us dsl Xs gotta worry about putting to much weight on our inadequate front springs so I wonder how much weight I could actually carry up front (would it be worth it)?

With shipping, it was $228 delivered here in NW Indiana. This thing is very beefy. Rated at 500lbs tongue weight and 8k towing. I sure would never put 500lbs on it, but it's nice to know I have some breathing room.
I looked over the Reese instructions for putting a regular receiver on my X, and it was not a real easy task. Not impossible, just not what I would call easy.
I stood on my hitch and I hardly got any deflection at all, and I am approx. 300lbs. I know that the dsl X carries more weight by default, but it should still work ok for carrying a few hundred lbs.
