    Chevrolet/GMC Hitch mount base recall on 1500 trucks

    I just had my 2014 hitch mount base replaced, the dealer told me the bad welds on the plate has been going on a while and a LOT of 1/4 Ton GMC and Chevy trucks not just 2014's have been recalled. My truck only has 17K miles on it and was "looking suspicious" but I tow with it all the time, it rarely does not have something hooked to the back and I got it used at 9K miles so who knows what was hooked to it before I got it.

    You might want to check your VIN for recall if you have a 1500. When the welds go, the whole hitch and where you hook your safety chains all departs the back of your truck at the same time. Just an FYI.
