Lol, I understand what your saying, but, technically, it was, in fact, "installed". I could have done it, but didn't have to...as for reese, the only experience I can speak from is the 16k reese slider that was installed on my 09 f350 CC SRW Lariat SB for only $1150, that did include the instal kit. It was my first F350 and my first 5ver, and I made some poor choices on my tow vehicle, (it did the job but a LWB would have been better) But I used that hitch for 5 years and hated every mile of it. The Slider always hung up and was hard to slide, reeses own instruction suggested you put the landing gear down and take some of the weight off of it so it would slide easier, really?!, try that making a u turn on a 4 lane hwy...I know reese makes a good product, generally, but I didn't want another one due to the frustration I experienced with my old ....jmo. I am very happy with the setup I have now tho, the 09 and the reese taught me alot, just glad I made it 5 years and 60k miles without taking out the back window of my cab...lol

I too didn't want a slider. The manual ones as you learned are a pain and the auto ones are expensive + very heavy to take in and out... or install as you put it... LOL. Anyways, I bought an 5ver that was made to be short bed towable without a slider. Great price on the hitch you got though. Cheaper than the equivalent Reese and if it was available when I bought mine, I'd have considered it to go with my factory prep...
