Where can I get a trailer hitch?

Anyone know where I can get a trailer hitch?
I have a cab and I want to haul two bikes for weekend trips. Obviously I can't go with a roof rack. There must be a way to connect a bike rack to a trailer hitch.
I searched the web and found one at Rock Auto, but it looks very generic, don't know if it will fit or not.

I've seen trailer hitches for 944'4 on eBay (Evil Bay) - I've never bought one but I think they are available.

Looks like the ebay one's are all the same, some have different listing pics but they are all the Curt 11712 like the Rock Auto one. Anyone ever install one? I'd just hate to get it, then have it not fit.

Doesn't Uhaul make a hitch receiver that will bolt right up to the bumper shock mounts?
